Belgium has a large variety of waffles. Invention of the Liège waffles, the most popular Belgian waffle variety, was during the 18th century by the chef of the prince-bishop of Liège. However, there are no German, French, Dutch, or Belgian cookbooks that contain references to them. A full Gaufre de Liège recipe does not appear until 1921.

The Liège waffle is a richer, denser, sweeter, and chewier waffle. Furthermore, it is native to the greater Wallonia region of Eastern Belgium. Also, it is alternately know as gaufres de chasse or hunting waffles. They’re an adaptation of brioche bread dough, featuring chunks of pearl sugar which caramelize on the outside of the waffle when baked. It is the most common type of waffle available in Belgium and prepared in plain, vanilla, and cinnamon varieties by street vendors across the nation.
