You’ve heard of Liege Waffles. You’ve heard of Daim (Dime) Bars. Ladies and gentlemen, please meet; Daim Bar Waffles.
These are straight up my favourite waffles of all time. The waffle dough is like a super-simple brioche, aka deliciousness. The brioche-y dough then gets rippled with chopped up Daim Bars, and when you bake the waffles, they melt and become pockets of molten chocolate and toffee. #wafflemagic
I went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy with my man-friend last night. Have you seen it? Aside from the fact that I feel like a cliche because I’m now joining the millions of others with an official crush on Chris Pratt, it’s a killer movie. It easily jumped up to being my second-favourite Marvel release.
So that was my night last night: wood fired pizzas, my boyfriend (he’s the best), a freaking great movie, and then a couple of these waffles re-heated in the toaster with a big scoop of vanilla. I hope you all have at least one night as good as that this weekend. You deserve it.
One word of warning; these will DESTROY your waffle maker. The toffee does melt everywhere, and that’s a good thing, but it also means caramelised sugar all over your waffle maker. I’ve found the easiest thing to do is to let it all cool down (safety first) and then use a plastic utensil to chip away at any bits that are being stubborn, and then wipe and rinse everything thoroughly with hot water.
But ya’ll, it’s so worth it. The soft, tender, buttery dough, with it’s almost feathery texture. The melted chocolate, the pockets of toffee. These are not to be missed. Make these and have a great weekend!
- 2 cups plain flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- ⅓ cup warm water
- 1 tsp dried yeast
- 2 tsp caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 150g (1 stick, plus 3 tbsp) butter, melted
- ⅔ cup chopped daim bars (aka dime bars)
- To make the waffles, sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl or stand mixer.
- In another small bowl, combine the water, yeast and sugar and set aside for 15 minutes.
- Once the time is up, add the now-frothy yeast mix to flour and mix to incorporate. The mix will be very dry.
- Continue mixing and add the eggs one at a time, until a stiff dough is formed. Now, slowly add the butter, bit by bit, making sure it is well incorporated after each addition. It will seem like the butter won't incorporate, but keep beating!
- Once all the butter is in, cover the dough and set aside to rise for an hour, or until doubled in size.
- Once the dough is doubled, stir through the chopped daim bars and leave for a further 15 minutes. Then, bake the waffles, as per your machine’s instructions! BOOM. Liege Waffles.
- Eat them with ice cream. For me.

So I have this really huge weakness for Liege waffles. Legend has it that I have a rolling belgian pearl sugar subscription via amazon just to please my waffle cravings as much as I need to.
(Btw, I just found your blog and I’m literally dying over it. cue the late night cravings!)
I love your brain, you know that? Candy + brioche + waffles? You go with your bad self, miss thang.
You’re killing me with your soft, tender, buttery dough. noms
Please to be explaining what a daim bar is, for all us yankees.
Hi Calliope – They’re Dime Bars! I’m pretty sure I bracketed that in the article for ya’ll! Wait, Dime Bars are a thing in the US, right?
Over here they’re more commonly known as health bars! also this means that I can buy the health bar bits all ready for my consumption.
Gurl the fluffiness of these waffles would probably make me just yell and punch a stack of them out of happiness.
Just had these for supper minus the daim bars..as I have 3 small boys and felt the need to restrict sugar consumption for my own sanity! They were DDElicious! def. a keeper of a waffle recipe. Thanks so much.
My pleasure! I’m so glad you tried them! Thanks for commenting, Jesse.
These waffles look and sound amazing, I adore Diam bars! And Guardians of the Galaxy is the best film I’ve seen all year, so so funny and the soundtrack is great!
DAIM! The best bars ever. My man would eat himself to death if I made him these.. you’re very quickly becoming my cooking crush.
