My boyfriend's mom made these for Thanksgiving brunch, so I can't attest to 100% of the recipe. However, I didn't really like the texture. It was more like a pancake in the shape of a waffle than an actual waffle texture (crisp and crunchy). Also, for me, there was WAY too much lemon zest. I'm also not a fan of olive oil in baked goods, personally. I also felt like I was tasting a lot of baking powder, instead of a baked good flavor. Perhaps some vanilla or almond extract could help with this?

I wouldn't make these myself, and I definitely won't be asking for them at another holiday.


I only used 2 teaspoons powdered ginger, for me even this was to much. And I used much more water. They were ok but nothing I want to eat more often.Riina
