Liège-style Waffles on a stick
This recipe makes 12 Liège-style waffles on a stick using a suitable waffle maker.
Add the milk at room temperature and the yeast into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix. Add the flour, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla sugar, and a pinch of salt, then knead until the dough is elastic. Add the butter and knead gently until the mixture has a uniform consistency.
Cover the mixing bowl with plastic film and leave the dough to rest for about an hour.
Once the dough has risen nicely, knock it back and stir in the pearl sugar. Shape into portions weighing 120 g and leave to rest for 15 mins.
Preheat the waffle iron to 180 °C for 15 minutes.
Brush the irons with a light coat of oil. Place one dough piece into each iron and close the waffle irons. Close the waffle irons and lock into position using the handles. After a few seconds of cooking time, insert the stick half way along the length of the waffle.
Cook in this position for 2 mins 30 secs.
Open the waffle iron and remove the waffles using a waffle pick. It is best to place the waffles on a rack to prevent them from going soft.
