Traditional Belgian Liège Waffles are a sugary sweet treat for anytime of day. This is the most authentic Belgian Liège Waffle recipe that we can make here at home in Canada. 

These Belgian waffles aren't the same as the ones we eat here in North America for breakfast or brunch. The Liège waffle is a 'yeasted waffle' and more like a bread than a loose waffle batter.
