"www.weekend waffles"

“www.weekend waffles”

Found these on a wonderful Saturday morning – on the internet!  Thus the “www.” They’re lemony, light and delicious!
2 Cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
2 egg whites – beaten till foamy in a separate bowl
2 egg yolks
2 Tbsp. grated lemon zest – I used the zest of a whole lemon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Cups milk
6 Tbsp. butter - melted

Preheat a waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a small bowl; set aside. Beat egg whites until foamy in a separate mixing bowl. Whisk the egg yolks, lemon zest, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl or large glass measuring cup; whisk in the milk. Stir in the flour mixture until smooth. Fold in the melted butter and then the beaten egg whites until just incorporated.
Cook the waffles until golden brown.

Slather on some butter, a sprinkle of icing sugar, a squirt of lemon juice and a splash of maple syrup, grab a mug of coffee and enjoy this with the one you love!  It actually makes enough for 4 people if you care to share J.

Till next time .................... try some waffles next time for a weekend breakfast!
