Lemon Belgium Waffles
Lemon Belgian Waffles with Homemade Berry Syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1-cup milk or buttermilk
Juice and grated zest of 2 lemons
3 large eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon cream of tarter
Sift together flour, salt, baking powder and nutmeg into a bowl;
make a well in center. Mix buttermilk and lemon zest and juice
well in a blender or a bowl. Add egg yolks and mix until well
incorporated. In a clean bowl, beat egg whites with a mixer at
low speed until they begin to froth. Add cream of tartar and
beat at high speed until glossy, stiff peaks form. Add milk
mixture to well in flour mixture and whisk until no large lumps
remain. Gently fold 1/2 of egg whites into batter, and then fold
in remaining egg whites (batter will be streaked with egg whites).
Bake waffles on a preheated waffle iron to a rich golden brown.
Serve immediately topped with warm berry syrup.
*This is a nice tangy waffle that is very nicely complimented with
the berry syrup.
