The modern waffle has its origins in medieval cuisine. The waffle makers consisted of two heavy metal plates portable with wooden arms. Unlike nowadays, these waffle makers usually had designs of the owner including landscapes or natural motives. In addition, wafer, the metal plate people used to make waffles in the past, gave a name to this delicacy. All meanings of “waffle” in every country share the same feature – its shape that people love all over the world.
The Liège waffle was invented in a Belgian city called Liège in the 18th century. Liège waffle or also Gofre de Liège is a waffle that is usually served hot. Moreover, it has a characteristic layer of caramel covering it.
