Lemon Waffles

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by CountryLady

Waffles are definitely a weekend breakfast treat - this recipe comes from Christine Cushing. Adding the softly whipped egg whites to the batter will make the waffles nice and fluffy. Serve with pure Canadian maple syrup, fresh berries & whipped cream or pair with blueberry sauce (#78222)...to use Christine's words...wicked! Prep time includes "standing", cook time & # of servings has been estimated - it depends on your waffle iron.

My family really enjoys these waffles. The only problem is the 30 min. wait time. They aren't fond of that!!:) I too have forgotten the lemon and done the lemon juice but just isn't the same. Thanks for taking the time to post this recipe. Paddles.
