Types of Waffles

There are many different types of waffles, each with its own unique flavor and texture. Here are some of the most popular types of waffles:

·        American Waffle: These are the type of waffles you typically think of when you hear the word "waffle." They are light and airy with a crispy outside and a soft inside. American-style waffles are usually served with syrup, butter, or powdered sugar.

·        Belgian Waffle: Belgian-style waffles are thicker than American-style waffles and have deep pockets that can be filled with whipped cream, fruit, or other toppings. They are generally served as a dessert rather than a breakfast food.

·       Dutch Waffle: Dutch-style or "stroopwafels" are thin waffles that are sandwiching a filling made from syrup or honey. Dutch stroopwafels can be found in many grocery stores nowadays.

·        Egg waffles:  These are a popular street food in Hong Kong. They are made with eggs, flour, sugar, and baking powder, and they have a very light and airy texture. Egg waffles can be served plain or with toppings like fruit or chocolate sauce.

·       Liege Waffle: Liege waffles are made with a dough that contains Pearl Sugar. Pearl Sugar is a type of sugar that doesn't melt when it is heated, which gives Liege waffles their characteristic crunchy texture. These waffles are often served plain or with a dusting of powdered sugar.
