Lemon Poppyseed Waffles
One of my favorite treats as a kid was a Lemon Poppyseed Bread.
I cannot believe I have never made one – that might need to happen soon.
Thing is, as much as my mom made just about every single thing from scratch, this favorite loaf came from the store.
It was a rare treat. Our family used to go to the lake in the summer – one of those day trips that started super early in the morning so we’d snag a great spot on the beach. We had a big cooler filled with eats for the day, and for some reason, we always bought a few of the same things at the store for these trips. One of those things? A Lemon Poppyseed Loaf from the grocery bakery.
Oh so good.
So these waffles are lovely – bright lemon, crispy fluffy light, with that little crunch from the poppyseed. Slightly sweet, just as I like things. So, way less sweet than that favorite Lemon Poppyseed Bread I loved…
These would be great with a little melted butter and syrup, but I didn’t even do that. I am loving the new Daiya Greek Yogurt Alternatives – and the Blueberry flavor was a perfect match for these Lemon Poppyseed Waffles. Perfect flavor match and color match, don’t you think?
It really is all I needed.
VEGAN BREAKFAST RECIPES:
Sunday Vegan Brunch, here we come.
- Sift together flour, sugar, poppyseed, and baking powder. Whisk in soda and combine. Stir in lemon juice and zest.
- Allow waffle batter to sit several minutes, stirring again just before pouring into waffle maker.
- Pour 1/3 to 1/2 cup into middle of prepared waffle iron (depending on size of iron). Close and cook per machine instructions.
- I cooked mine about 3-4 minutes on one side, flipping and cooking another minute (using a waffle iron that flips).
