    Liege Waffle question

    I purchased these hard sugar cubes today thinking perhaps I could substitute them for pearl sugar which is very difficult to find (impossible) here locally.


    If I break up the cubes, can they be used in place of pearl sugar to prepare this liege waffle recipe:?

    Liege Waffles (Belgian Pearl Sugar Waffles)


    Help? Suggestion?


    Thank you!

    Sorry, but breaking up sugar cubes will not give you what you are looking for. Sugar cubes are simply regular sugar compressed into cubes. icon_sad.gif wave.gif

    Hi, Cookgirl.

    Ruth Van Waerebeek is the author of "Everyone Eats Well in Belgium Cookbook." (There's more info about her in my profile.)

    After her Lige Waffles recipe, she adds a note:

    Pearl sugar, or prl socker, is an ornamental sugar that remains crunchy after baking.... You can substitute crushed sugar cubes for the pearl sugar. Use a rolling pin to crush 1 cup of sugar cubes into pieces approximately the size of a sunflower seed. Don't worry about making them the same size.

    Give it a try.

    I know what the sugar looks like. It's finding it locally.
    I don't want to have to order it online, then pay more for shipping than the actual cost of the package of sugar.
