Place flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in mixing bowl and stir to combine. In a second bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla until blended. Stir into dry ingredients. Stir in lemon juice and zest. Fold in melted butter and then vanilla yogurt with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Let batter rest a few minutes before using. Preheat your Cuisinart® Waffle Iron on setting #3. When preheated, green indicator light will illuminate. Pour 2 cups of batter onto the center of the lower grid. Allow batter to spread toward edges for 5 seconds. Close lid of waffle iron – green indicator light will turn off. When green indicator light turns on again, waffles are ready. Open lid and carefully remove baked waffles. Repeat with remaining batter. For best results, serve immediately. Variations: For lemon ginger waffles, add 1 tablespoon of grated fresh ginger to the batter with the juice and zest. For lemon blueberry waffles, add 2 cups of blueberries to the batter as the last ingredient.
