1. Combine the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the eggs, oils, buttermilk, and vanilla; whisk until blended. Stir in lemon zest. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.

2. Preheat the Cuisinart® 4-Slice Belgian Waffle Maker to desired setting.

3. Pour 2 cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid of the preheated waffle maker; spread batter evenly using a heat-proof spatula. Close lid of waffle maker. Ready light will go off. When light turns green again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately.

Variations: For lemon ginger add 2 teaspoons of grated fresh or chopped candied ginger to the batter with the zest. For lemon blueberry add 1 cup of blueberries to the batter as the last ingredient.
