    Yield: 2 to 4 servings

    • 2 cups Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix
    • 2 tbsp poppy seeds
    • 2 tbsp lemon zest
    • 1-1/4 cups cold club soda
    • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
    • 1/4 cup butter, melted

    Stir together Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix, poppy seeds, and lemon zest. Whisk together club soda, egg, and melted butter in a small bowl; gently whisk egg mixture into poppy seed mixture (mixture will be lumpy.) Let stand 3 minutes.

    Cook using 1 cup batter in a preheated, oiled Belgian-style waffle iron until golden. (If you don't have Belgian-style waffle iron use 1/2 cup batter in traditional waffle iron.) To make pancakes instead of waffles, use 1/4 c. batter on medium-hot oiled griddle.

    Serve with maple syrup and crème fraîche.

    Chef's Note: Don't skimp on the serving suggestions. The real maple syrup and crème fraîche sends this recipe right into the top tier.

This makes the most incredible Belgium Waffles.
I hope people are not put off by the lemon & poppy seeds.
I NEVER USE THEM in this recipe.
The basic recipe is the "bomb" without them.
So convenient using the 11oz. bottle of Club Soda.

Excellent recipe!!! I make it omitting the poppy seeds and lemon zest. Have tried many pancake and waffle recipes over the years using different products as they have hit the market and this recipe cannot be beat. Pamela's products are tops.
