Gaufres de Liège or waffles, waffles, waffles!

I'm fueled by cupcakes, but today's recipe is a Belgian waffle recipe called Gaufres de Liège!

The shopping list for 10-12 waffles:

For the batter:

1 1/3 cups (160 grams) wheat flour
4 eggs
1 cup ( 200 grams) cream
clove powder
cinnamon powder
anise powder
1/8 cup (20 grams) vanilla sugar
1/4 cup (60 grams) butter
1/4 cup (40 grams) sugar
butter to grease the waffle maker

For the garnish:

1 cup (200 grams) cream
1/8 cup (40 grams) vanilla sugar
1/3 cup (40 grams) confectioner's sugar

If you can't buy vanilla sugar, there's an easy way to make it! All you have to do is combine white sugar with vanilla bean pieces! The vanilla sugar tastes even better, if you let it rest for a few weeks.

Okay, let's get started!

In a large bowl combine flour, egg yolk, cream, a pinch of each spice and vanilla sugar. Give egg white into a shaker.

Then melt the butter in a small pan, add melted butter to flour mixture and whisk well.

Add 1/8 cup (20 grams) and a pinch of salt to egg white and beat with hand mixer until stiff. Then add another 1/8 cup (20 grams) sugar and beat for 2 more minutes.

Give stiff egg white into large bowl with flour/cream mixture and carefully fold in.

Preheat and grease waffle maker. When hot, give 2-3 tbsp batter into waffle maker and bake waffle at medium heat.

Add 1/8 cup (40 grams) vanilla sugar to cream and whip with handmixer.

Place waffle on a plate, add cream topping and dredge with confectioner's sugar.

Bon appétit!
