Course Breakfast, Dessert
Keyword Belgian Waffles, dessert waffles
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
rise time 30 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 10


  • 3/4 cup warm milk
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 8 oz Belgian Pearl Sugar


  • Sliced strawberries, raspberries, sliced bananas, Nutella, Whipped Cream, Powdered sugar.


  1. Sprinkle yeast and sugar over warm milk in bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for about 5 minutes until the yeast begins to foam.

  2. Add 2 eggs, melted butter and whisk together with fork.

  3. Add 3 cups flour, salt and vanilla to yeast and milk mixture. Mix on low with dough hook until mixture is smooth. Add remaining 1/2 cup of flour and mix on low for 2 minutes.

    Place in a warm location, covered for 30 minutes.

  4. After dough has risen, fold 8 oz of Belgian Pearl Sugar into dough using a large spoon or by hand. 

    Divide dough into pieces about 3-4 oz each. You should have 9-10 balls of dough. 

  5. Preheat waffle iron for 10 minutes before cooking dough. 

    Generously grease waffle iron using cooking spray. Cook one piece of dough at a time, placing dough in middle of waffle iron, close and cook until outside is crispy and center is cooked through. Cooking time will vary depending on heat level and waffle iron used. Watch carefully, as sugar will burn if cooked at too high temperature. 

  6. Lay cooked waffles on a wire rack while cooking remaining dough. May be kept in warm oven (225 degrees) until ready to serve, or serve immediately with toppings. 

Recipe Notes

  • To clean waffle iron, use a spatula to remove any remaining bits of sugar while waffle iron is still warm. You may also use a damp cloth or paper towel at the end of a silicone spatula to clean. 
  • Pearl Sugar is found at kitchen stores such as Orson Gygi in SLC, William Sonoma and online at Amazon.
