Luscious Lemon Waffles

Perfect for spring, summer, fall or winter.  I love sunshine (have I EVER said that before???) and these waffles are sunshine in a warm, chewy, delicious way.

3 cups unbleached flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs lightly beaten
2 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh is better but not always practical)
2 tablespoons lemon zest
3/4 cup butter melted and cooled till near room temp
2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt

Combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt) in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla. Whisk until blended. Stir in the lemon juice and zest. Finally, fold in the butter and yogurt.

After you are done making the waffle mix, plug in your waffle iron and let your batter rest (for about 5 minutes). Bake according to your waffle iron directions. 

Top with your favorite syrup, jam, or creamy topping.  You will love the taste of fresh sunshine in your mouth.  Hooray for lemon!  Hooray for waffles!  And SUPER HOORAY for lemon waffles!!!  By the way, this is my adorable little Meyer Lemon Tree, Sunny.  She will one day be the mother of the fruit that makes these waffles... grow Sunny, GROW!!!
