The history of the "Gaufre de Liège"

According to legend, the "gaufre de Liège" was invented in Belgium in the 18th century by the chef to the Prince de Liège.

As the Prince had asked for a pastry based on large pieces of pearled sugar, the chef attempted a brioche-type pastry in a waffle-iron with pearled sugar mixed into the dough.

The smell of vanilla released during the cooking delighted the Prince and this waffle recipe quickly entered the culinary traditions of the Liège region and then soon became popular throughout the kingdom of Belgium.
