Lemon Coconut Waffles: The Dinner Edition
I adapted this delicious breakfast treat from Michael Wurm, Jr.'s lemon coconut waffle recipe. What did I do to it? I doubled it, swapped out some ingredients to make it marginally less unhealthy, and I geekified the instructions to the max.
What makes this the dinner edition? I cooked it for dinner and paired it with a beer.
- flour - 6 cups
- coconut sugar - 1.5 cups
- baking powder - 2 tbsp
- kosher salt - 1.5 tsp
- sweetened shredded coconut - 2 cups
- butter - 6 tbsp, melted
- eggs - 6
- vanilla - large splash
- 1% milk - 5 cups
- lemons - 2, zested and juiced
- Cube butter and melt in microwave or however you prefer to melt butter.
- While the butter cools, debate whether The Cube deserves a higher Tomatometer rating than 62%.
- In a large-and-in-charge bowl, add all dry ingredients and give them a cursory mix.
- In a separate large-and-Charles-in-Charge bowl, crack eggs.
- Beat those eggs like they left a water stain on your near mint condition, first print Incredible Hulk #181.
- Add other Wet! Wet! Wet! ingredients to bowl with eggs.
- In case you're wondering, I tend to zest the lemons into the wet ingredients bowl before slowly squeezing their life juices out (just to make sure I don't end up with any errant seeds).
- Beat everything in the wet bowl before mixing into the dry bowl.
- Mix until your arm is sore. If you're particularly weak, mix until both arms are sore.
- If you're using the Cuisinart GR-4N panini press with the GR-WAFP waffle plates, spray with canola oil and pre-heat to 400.
- When the light turns green, add 1.25 cups of the batter and cook for about five minutes or until your desired darkness and crispiness.
- I tend to re-spray every two or three batches.
- Repeat like you're Mulder & Scully in The X-Files episode "Monday."
This is right up there with my favorite breakfast recipes: my baked french toast, my lemon ricotta pancakes, my chocolate banana bread, my apple cinnamon pancakes, and my cranberry blood orange waffles. In typical Flavour of the Geek fashion, I tend to cook up a mountain of these things so no one leaves hungry and so there are leftovers to freeze.
In this latest batch, I ended up having to repeat the cooking process ten times, which got me 37 waffles using my rig.
Since I made breakfast for dinner, I paired the waffles with Atwater Brewery’s Vanilla Java Porter.
