For those of you unaware, I’m a huge fan of citrus. Lemon, in particular. I like sour better than sweet. I think my enjoyment prioritizes citrus in the following order: lemons, limes, grapefruits, oranges. Although if we’re talking about freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice, it might get popped to the top.
Enough about my love for citrus. The thing I loved most about these waffles, from Joy the Baker, was the delicate lemon flavor throughout, which, I suppose, comes from rubbing the lemon zest and sugar together with your fingers before blending it into everything else. Nice touch! I also loved how the lemon really sang when you got a bit of lemon zest.
I know that a work morning can be a little rushed, so I mixed together the dry ingredients and wet ingredients the previous day and refrigerated the wet ingredients overnight. In the morning I dumped and waffled. It was quick, easy, and the waffles worked out great. This is a great tip for when you absolutely must have waffles and it’s only Tuesday. You absolutely cannot mix together the wet and dry and leave it overnight, unless you have a special recipe for that, because it throws off the leavening.
