So my guy got a craving for Belgian waffles today. His suggestion was that instead of going to somewhere that serves Belgian waffles, we buy a waffle maker. Um, okay. So, as the new owners of a Belgian waffle maker, I’m on the prowl for good batter recipes.
We bought a mix for today, but it was rather bland. I will hit up Google and the normal haunts for well-rated recipes, but I figured I’d ask here if anyone has a personal recommendation.
Also, am I the only one whose other half gets a craving and then decides we must buy the equipment to make it instead of just going out to eat? 🙂

Look up recipes for liege waffles, they’re what are found a lot in belgium. This is the best one I’ve found though it’s annoying to have to do the conversions.
For the pearl sugar just combine some sugar and water and cook it on the stove over low medium heat to let the water evaporate a bit. Stir a bit but not too much, you want the sugar to get clumpy. When the sugar starts to get clumpy and most of the water looks like it’s evaporated take it off the heat. If you let it go too long on the heat the clumps will fall apart and you won’t get the big sugar clumps that are good for waffles.

I use the recipe that came with my All-Clad waffle iron and it’s amazing (found under the video link here http://www.williams-sonoma.com/products/all-clad-electric-belgian-waffle-maker/?pkey=cwaffle-bread-makers) . When I don’t use that one, I use Alton Brown’s. You can google it and find videos and the recipe, but be warned that his measurements in ounces are by WEIGHT unless it’s actually a liquid.

america’s test kitchen rarely lets me down! you usually have to pay to enter their site or at least register, but if you google you can find their recipes posted elsewhere on the web:
