Liege waffles are traditional Belgium waffles. They are fluffy and crunchy and sweet and probably the most wonderful waffles you will ever have. We, as always, got a little carried away with our toppings this time around. If you really want to appreciate these waffles, try them with just a little bit of maple syrup. Perfection.
- waffle mix
- 1 local egg, white and yolk separated
- 2 tablespoons organic dark brown sugar, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 tablespoon organic cane sugar
- organic dark roasted crunchy peanut butter
- 1/4 organic grade-b maple syrup
1. Place egg whites in a medium size bowl. Sprinkle with cream of tartar and beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. (Stiff peaks are when the whites stand up on their own.)
2. In a separate bowl, beat egg yolk and brown sugar with an electric mixer until smooth, creamy, and slightly pale in color. Add in the remaining ingredients for your waffle mix and thoroughly combine, either by hand or with the mixer. Once combined, fold in your egg whites. Be gentle, we want to give these waffles as much volume as we can.
3. Pour waffle batter into a preheated waffle maker. Sprinkle the tops with cane sugar and cook on a slightly crispy setting (about a medium-high) for 5-6 minutes.
4. In a medium sized sauté pan add your diced mango, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Cook over medium heat until sauce thickens and mangoes are caramelized.
5. Remove your waffles when done and plate. Top with peanut butter and mangoes. Drizzle with the leftover syrup.
See how the sugar crystallizes and makes the tops of the waffles extra crunchy? Yuuuum.
Sorry the picture is kind of shaky, we were really excited!
