Today is National Waffle Day, which is a pretty great thing, right? I brought along a recipe to share with you for Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles with Lemon Butter Cream Syrup. Just in case a few of you enjoy lemon, lemon and more lemon. I know I do. These waffles are light and airy on the inside, and slightly crisp on the outside. Add fresh blueberries, whipped cream and Lemon Butter Cream Syrup and this is an over the top, crazy delicious way to enjoy breakfast. They would be great for Easter or Mothers Day brunch.

I am also partnering today with 9 other bloggers to celebrate waffles. We have each developed a waffle recipe to share with you all. The other bloggers recipe links can be found at the end of this post. (They look fabulous, by the way!)

Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles from Jamie Cooks It Up!

Lemon Poppy Seed Waffles

Time: 30 minutes
Yield: 12-14 large waffles
Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

3 C flour
2 Tb baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 C sugar
1 Tb poppy seeds
3 eggs,  beaten
2 1/2 C milk
1/2 C canola or vegetable oil
1 Tb fresh lemon juice
3 Tb butter, melted

Recipe found by clicking HERE 


1. Into a large mixing bowl place 3 C flour, 2 Tb baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp salt, 1/3 C sugar and 1 Tb poppy seeds. Toss the ingredients together with a fork to combine.


2. In a separate mixing bowl whisk 3 eggs together until frothy.


3. Add 2 1/2 C milk and 1/2 C oil.


4. Add about 1 Tb fresh lemon juice and pour the wet ingredients into the dry.


5. Whisk it all together with a fork. When almost all of the batter is well incorporated add 3 Tb melted butter.


Whisk it in. The batter should be slightly lumpy still.


6. Spray a hot waffle iron with cooking spray and carefully scoop or pour the batter into it.


You’ll want to be careful not to get too much batter into the iron. I like to leave the edges of the griddle bare, so the batter has a little space to spread out once you close the lid. Less mess to clean up later, yes?

  1. Jamie, these look wonderful! I LOVE anything lemon, so these would be perfect for me! What a great way to celebrate National Waffle Day!

  2. Both the waffles and the syrup sound divine! The blueberries are a perfect addition. I’ll be making these soon. 🙂

  3. Syrup is delicious, and the waffles would be except for the large amount of soda. I questioned it but followed the recipe anyway. Should it be baking powder instead? 🙂

    1. Becky,
      Thank you so much for your comment. It is indeed 2 Tb baking POWDER. There should also be the addition of 1/2 tsp baking soda. So sorry for the mistake. I have fixed it in the recipe ingredient list and instructions.
      Bless you! I so apologize for your wasted ingredients and time.

  4. I made these for Easter breakfast and they were a hit. I served them with strawberries and whipped cream which just made them better. The recipe makes a ton too. My family of 6 had enough left over to have them again the next day.

    1. Hi Shelley,
      So happy to hear they turned out well! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂
      All the best,
