NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 3 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • Oil, for waffle iron
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Maple syrup, for serving Special equipment: a waffle iron
Directions

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F.

In a large bowl sift to combine the flour, baking powder, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and salt. In small bowl whisk the egg yolks until smooth, then add the milk, vegetable oil, lemon extract, and lemon zest. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Pour in the liquid ingredients and gently stir the batter, with a wooden spoon, until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. You can use a hand beater or a stand mixer on low speed, if desired.

In a very clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until foamy. Add the remaining sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Gently fold the whites into the batter. Pour about 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup batter into an oiled waffle iron, sprinkle with walnuts, then close the iron. Cook until golden brown, about 5 minutes, depending on waffle iron settings. Transfer to a serving platter and keep warm in a low oven. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with maple syrup.
