ElegantbutterflyAJ says:

My dad had, had a lot of the Belgium pearl sugar for the recipe he could not wait to help me 😀

Najiha Rahim says:

So if i dont have the Belgian pearl sugar should i substitute it with normal sugar or just leave it out?

LPJillV says:

I made this today and it turned out fantastic! It has a light, fluffy, soft texture. I didn’t have the coarse sugar, so I omitted it, which I think would have given it a more caramelized/crunch on the outside of the waffle. I will try again with pearl sugar next time to see how it tastes. Thank you for your recipe!
