Lemon Belgium Waffles

Lemon Belgian Waffles with Homemade Berry Syrup


1-cup flour

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.
