The best waffle recipes and everything about waffles. Waffles started way back in the Middle Ages as wafers, with hinged long handled irons that cooked both sides of thin crisp bread at once in a fire. Our modern waffle iron evolved directly from this and even our heart and Mickey Mouse shaped waffle irons copy old styles with coats of arms or verse. A Liege waffle is a richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle. Invented by a prince's chef in the 18th century it features chunks of pearl sugar, which caramelizes on the outside of the waffle when baked. It is the most common type of waffle available in Belgium and is prepared in plain, vanilla and cinnamon varieties by street vendors across the nation.
Since their emergence waffles recipes have been made in many varieties. In the west we think of waffles as a sweet breakfast or desert, yet relations of the waffle are crepes and pancakes. Crepes almost have the same recipe as the waffle, except for the addition of yeast or baking soda, which is the magic ingredient that makes them light and fluffy, as opposed to being a very thin pancake or crepe when made without.
