Belgian Waffles


If there’s one thing Belgium is famous for…well, alright, I know it’s hard to name just one so I’ll begin the sentence again.

One of the things Belgium is more famous for, (there, that’s better!), is Waffles. We saw them everywhere on our travels and decided to have the first taster in a little coffee / tea room rather than on the street, where they looked more like the generic ones you can buy in supermarkets over here.  819_1665

We both opted for a plain and simple Waffle with Icing Sugar and were not to be disappointed. It was light and fluffy on the inside while being crisp and crunchy on the outside. You just had to be careful not to breathe in and therefore inhale the icing sugar – I'm sure we’ve all been there before!

The OH couldn’t resist buying a white-chocolate covered one from a street stall, and he claimed this was just as delicious, but it looked a bit gooey to me.


Oh yeah…one more thing: We couldn’t resist singing the ‘Birdseye Potato Waffles…they’re waffly versatile’ song, swapping the ‘Birdseye Potato’ part for ‘Crispy, Belgian’. And then it got stuck…in our heads…for the entire holiday. Now, I hope I’ve managed to get it out of my head by writing this down, and into yours instead: thanks!
