What's a liege Waffle?
They originate from a town in Belgium called Liege. Pearl Waffle is a richer, denser, sweeter, and thicker waffle. They are cooked from a dough not a typical American style batter. The dough has pearl sugar chunks, hence the name La Pearl, "La" meaning "the" in french. If it needs syrup, it’s not a TRUE authentic Belgian Waffle. They can be eaten anytime of the day as a breakfast, snack or dessert.
How does La Pearl compare to boxed or typical restaurant-style waffles?
La Pearl Waffles simply do not compare because they do not exist here. They are not your plain unsweetened boxed or restaurant style waffles and you can’t make these on a regular waffle iron. The Belgian waffle iron weight ranges from 60 lbs-100lbs and allows the waffle to bake at the perfect temperature. No need for syrup, the waffle is a sweet vanilla flavored and thick textured Liege waffle infused with pearl sugar chunks. Within each of these Pearls lies the authentic taste which caramelizes on the outside of the waffle when baked. Adding syrup to these waffles would be like adding syrup to a donut.
We experimented with the recipe and ingredients in the U.S countless times and could not come up with a product that matches the original Belgian Liege Waffle flavor. Due to the difference in flavor of Belgian quality ingredients, we decided to have the dough made there and imported here to preserve the authentic original flavors. We are happy to say that eating a La Pearl Waffle is the same as eating a waffle in Belgium.
