This is a great breakfast treat. If you don't want maple syrup, try topping with fresh berries and lemon yogurt. Yummmmmm!

Made these yesterday morning and served them with Maine blueberry syrup. They were DEVINE! Even plain, they had plenty of flavor. Will definitely make these again!

Absolutely yummy. The flavor was incredible. We served these for Mother's Day Brunch with a homemade strawberry syrup. This recipe is a definite keeper!

I tried this recipe before and I think it was really awesome! Even though I never use the waffles iron, while I use the sandwich grill it taste delicious. I let my friend try it, they all say it taste soo good that they call me to do again but I was too lazy and I told them next time I will do it for them again. but I find it a little bit too much egg that the egg cover the lemon smell but never mind I find it really good so i would like to give this recipe 5 out of 5. I taste really fantastic. I like it very much.

This truly is awsome! My ten year old can do it! I doubt IM 12 has really tried it!!! As for the reader without waffle Iron- A standard Sandwich grill works just as well! Only it si a bit messy!

My 10 year old has been cooking for 3 years. I think "Im 12" should try something new! Like getting rid of yucky, nasty, bad for you, Ego Waffles and trying home made!

From Im 12

This is just a bit difficult for a 12 year old to make alone, so I prefer to stick a waffle in the toaster and put a small slice of butter on it =) but this seems yummy = )
