Orange-Lemon Waffles


Add some zing to your homemade waffles. This recipe from Chef Peter Assue calls for the zest of both lemons and oranges, and the stiffly-beaten egg whites adds an air-like quality to your brunch. 

Ingredients:

1 Cup all-purpose Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
2 oz. sugar
6 Egg yolks
1/4 Cup orange juice
1 1/4 Cup milk
2 Cup heavy cream
zest of 1/2 lemon and 1/2 orange
4 oz. butter, melted
6 oz. egg whites
Fresh fruit as topping

Directions:

In a medium bowl, combine and sift the dry ingredients, set aside. Preheat the waffle iron to desired temperature.

In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, orange juice, milk, heavy cream, and orange and lemon zests.

Fold in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients (by hand with a whip or stand mixer on low speed/paddle, then slowly fold in melted butter.

In a separate bowl, whip egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into the batter above.

Ladle the batter into a preheated waffle iron. Cook the waffles until golden and crisp. Top with fresh fruit and serve immediately.
