Disclaimer: Hungry Jack has compensated me for creating this recipe. All opinions expressed are completely my own, as usual. 

I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for lemon anything. I like chocolate fine and dandy, but I seriously LOVE lemon. Whenever I have a few lemons in my fridge, I incorporate them into just about everything!

Lemon zest is particularly good in muffins, pancakes and now today I’m sharing with you a great lemon sour cream waffle! DO NOT be deceived and/or intimidated by this recipe. Yes, these look scrumptious but I assure you they are completely and totally do-able for anyone! My 6 year old could pull these off.

I threw this fun Saturday breakfast together the weekend before I had my baby 🙂 It was a fun little memory of having a family of four before our lives got turned upside down and I gave birth literally 5 days later.

Here’s how to make them:

Lemon Zest

Start by zesting two lemons. Flavor town, right here.

Lemon Zest in batter

Add the zest to your waffle batter that happens to be laced with sour cream and give it a good stir. Yum yum! I happened to use Hungry Jack’s Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix. Easy is the name of the game.

waffle batter

Take 1/4-1/3 cup of this batter and pour it onto your hot and buttered waffle iron.

Making waffles

Like so! If you’re using a deeper Belgium waffle iron, you’re going to need more batter per waffle. If you’re using a round, thinner waffle iron, you’ll need less batter per waffle.

Closed waffle iron

Cook these waffles to your liking. Keep in mind that every waffle iron is different so you’ll want to check the manufacturers’ directions before starting if you aren’t familiar with your machine.

Cooked lemon waffles

My waffles took about 2 1/2 minutes to cook to a lovely golden brown. Again, every machine is different, so keep that in mind.


While the waffles are cooking, feel free to slice up some berries and set your table! My daughter was ALL over this.

So, after about 10-15 minutes, you should have a nice stack of Lemon Sour Cream Waffles to devour.

A note

Do you see? My daughter takes her table setting job very seriously.

Pouring orange juice

I just snapped some photos of our breakfast…my kids are crack ups. Especially that Blake-man!

Ok: here’s how the waffle assembly happens. Take a couple of waffles and add some berries to the top.

Add some powdered sugar because it looks pretty and tastes even better 🙂

Now, you could stop here and eat them like this, but whyyyyyy?

These taste a whole lot better drizzled with lots of warm syrup! We used the Hungry Jack’s Original Microwavable Syrup because you can microwave the entire bottle without it exploding…not that I’ve done that before. Ahem.

Once you get these doused in syrup, dig in and enjoy!


The ‘enjoying’ part is never a problem at our house 🙂

    Lemons are my FAVE ingredient ever!!!! Pancakes and waffles aren’t horrible either!! Congrats on baby eddie, He is delicious!!!!

    One unique way we use pancakes is to make the batter extra thin, which allows us to make large pancakes that resemble a tortilla or crepe. Then we fill them with an egg, sausage, and cheese mixture, similar to an egg burrito. It isn’t as fragile as you would expect, and turns out really good.
