Looking for a springy, citrusy waffle that you can have ready to go pretty quick (and still have leftovers for breakfast for the week)? If so, I’d suggest these lovely key lime waffles. The most you’ll have to do is grate a lime to get the necessary zest (I have a separate thing of fresh lime juice, so); the rest should be lying around and ready to go in your pantry. Might mellow this out with a bit of vanilla next time, but otherwise, these are perfect and lovely.

Key Lime Waffles
Makes ~7 waffles

Ingredients

  • 2 c flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • .75 c sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1.75 c milk
  • .25 c fresh key lime juice
  • 1 T key lime zest
  • 1 stick butter (.5 c), melted

Take your dry ingredients, and whisk them together in a large bowl. In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together your eggs and milk, followed by the key lime juice and zest, and finally your melted butter. Then, slowly add your wet ingredients to your dry ones, until just barely combined. 

Then, make according to your waffle iron’s instructions, and enjoy!
