Ingredients

  • 3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • ¾ cup (1½ sticks) unsalted butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
  • 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla; whisk until blended.
  2. 2. Stir in lemon juice and zest. Fold in melted butter and then the vanilla yogurt. Let batter rest 5 minutes before using.
  3. 3. Preheat the Cuisinart® Waffle Maker to desired setting (a tone will sound when preheated). 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. When tone sounds, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. For best results, serve immediately. *Variations: For lemon ginger add 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger to the batter with the juice and zest. For lemon blueberry add 2 cups of blueberries to the batter as the last ingredient.
