Lemon Poppyseed Waffles with Strawberries

Today was a waffle day. I woke up thinking about them and got to it right away. I began with a simple waffle plan and it evolved to a lemon poppyseed batter. These are very simple, just a stir together batter. And the cooked peaches are so good, ill write up that recipe for you too. 

Later this afternoon, I found out my sister also woke up thinking of waffles! But hers hat cheese and ham, I will try that next weekend if she sends me her recipe! 

These lemon poppyseed waffles were tasty crispy. I use this amazing lemon powder from Penzies spice company however the zest of one lemon could be used instead. Toasting the poppyseeds briefly in a hot pan wakes them up and brings out more of their flavor.

Lemon poppyseed waffles   about 14 waffles
1 cup all-purpose flour.
1/2 cup potato flour (or starch)
1/2cup quinoa flour
1 cup applesauce
4 eggs
1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup oil grape seed or olive oil
1 tablespoon poppyseed
1/2 teaspoon lemon powder or zest of one lemon

dry ingredients. wet ingredients.

Plug in waffle iron and sent to heat up.
Measure the dry ingredients into a bowl stirring them up with a fork. In another larger bowl crack the eggs, measure the yogurt, and applesauce. Beat wet ingredients together with a wooden spoon until combined. Dump in half of the dry ingredients to the wet mixture. Stir to combine, add the remaining half of dry ingredients stir in until no dry spots are visible. Add the poppyseed and lemon powder if you haven't already. Add the oil lastly to the entire mixture.

Scoop appropriate amount of waffle batter onto the waffle iron, close and wait until the top opens easily and waffles are golden brown.

Lemon poppyseed waffle batter
This recipe makes nearly 14 waffles give or take depending on your waffle iron. If you have many leftover as I did they're easy to freeze, lay them out on a baking tray and place the entire thing into the freezer for several hours, no more than a few because they will dry out or get mysterious freezer burn. So after they have frozen at least on the outside take the tray out of the freezer put all of the frozen waffles into a freezer bag. Keep in the freezer until need. To thaw frozen waffles is so easy, put into the toaster or pop them into hot frypan and breakfast is done!
