Meyer Lemon Buttermilk Waffles

Yield: 3-4 waffles

Tangy, golden buttermilk waffles infused with the brightness of Meyer lemons. Adapted from Damn Delicious


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Meyer lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon Meyer lemon zest
  • For Serving:
  • powdered sugar
  • Meyer lemon wedges
  • butter
  • pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat your waffle iron.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, milk, melted butter, eggs, sugar, and lemon juice and zest. Pour mixture over the dry ingredients and whisk together until smooth.
  3. Spoon batter into your waffle iron as directed by manufacturers instructions. Cook until golden brown, crisp, and cooked through (in my waffle iron, that's about 4 minutes). Serve waffles immediately with powdered sugar and lemon wedges, with butter and syrup on the side.


*I have found that waffles are always best straight from the iron, so that they are crisp on the exterior. As they cool, they become less crisp. If you cannot serve them immediately from the iron, keep warm in a 200 degree oven until ready to serve.

Wonderfully delicate waffles with a burst of citrus goodness!  I had to improvise  since I didn't have Meyer Lemons,  I used juice from an orange and lemon.  We enjoyed them with your iced coffee recipe.


@gregor_fajfar thanks for sharing. i <3 lemon. and in a waffle? that just might send me over the edge. :)


these look great!  what waffle iron do you have?


I agree about serving waffles straight from the iron.  We usually make and eat them at the counter, taking turns as to who gets the next one!


@alaskascratch Those look SO amazing. Happy Valentine's Day!
