The other day, I took one of my boys to check out the brand new waffle cafe in Subiaco called, Pitcher and Iron.
They were giving away free waffles to the first 50 customers as their opening special event, so we had to try haha!
Plus one of the owners is a long-time friend of mine, so I wanted to support him too :)
They specialise in Liege Waffles (Belgium style waffles) which are made from yeast-raised dough, instead of regular waffle batter.
The result makes them very similar to a sweet, buttery, stretchy brioche bread. Or a soft croissant or doughnut.
They use pearl sugar, which has a higher melting point (and I was told, it has to be specially imported from Belgium) so texture of the waffle crust is crispy, with a kind of caramelised chewiness.
This was my son’s pick: The Duchess Waffle with strawberry compote, lychees, pavlova ice cream and Persian fairy floss.
I chose the The Jean Claude, which had beer icecream, maple bacon, honeycomb pieces and Speculoos (spiced biscuit).
They were both so yummy, decadent and definitely for people who love their desserts.
They serve brunch waffles from 8am – 2pm, such as Puller Pork + Eggs Benedict Waffles, Crunchy chicken bites waffles. And they serve dessert waffles from 3 – 10pm.
I can’t wait to come back to try the brunch waffles.
And… I’m also very keen to find a recipe to try making these myself!
