Did you know there is a difference between the Liege waffle and the Brussels waffle?


In order to cater to different tastes, we have two types of waffle in Belgium: the Liege waffle and the Brussels waffle. But what is the difference between the two?

Firstly, each one has their own particular shape. The Liege waffle is small with rounded edges, whereas the Brussels waffle is larger, and has a rectangular shape. Moreover, the Liege one is thicker and contains little clumps of sugar, whereas the Brussels one is lighter and is sprinkled with icing sugar.

For the hungry among us, here are two recipes to create the waffle you prefer. Make sure you choose the right waffle iron… Enjoy!
