|Did You Know?
waffles, or Brussels waffles, are prepared with a yeast-leavened
batter. It is generally, but not always, lighter, thicker, and crispier
and has larger pockets compared to other waffle varieties.
In Belgium, it is served warm by street vendors, dusted with
confectioner's sugar, and sometimes topped with whipped cream or
chocolate spread. In America, it is served in the same ways the
American waffle is served.
Belgian waffles were introduced to America by restaurateur Maurice
Vermersch, who sold his Brussels waffles under the name "Bel-Gem
Waffles" at New York's 1964 World's Fair.
