The last recipe in her book is for waffles and then there are six variations that you can try. The one that caught my eye was the Lemon Poppy Seed. They were light and fluffy with lemon scented throughout and then the light crunch from the blue poppy seeds. Topped with strawberries and freshly whipped cream, how could you possibly go wrong?
Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons poppy seeds
3 eggs, separated
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons lemon zest
6 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon extract
Preheat the waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl, sift all the dry ingredients. Add the poppy seeds. Mix the egg yolks, butter, buttermilk, lemon zest, juice and extract in a medium bowl. Combine with the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl - one that is clean and dry - beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Fold into the batter, then follow the directions for your waffle iron.
