Lemon Poppy Seed Sunshine Waffles of Happiness

A few weeks back I made some really yummy waffles. They had fresh squeezed lemon juice, with lemon zest, a little sugar, and lots of poppy seeds. What inspired me? Max had cooked with lemons the night before, and I didn't want the extra juice and zest to go to waste, so I just tossed everything into the waffle mix! What a worthwhile chance that was... those waffles were delicious. Trouble is, as usual, I have no recollection of what the ratios were. Arggh. Geoff is so very right... I should pay closer attention to what I am doing in the kitchen, and write it all down.

Craving some zesty comfort food this morning, so I am going to see what I can do to recreate Lemon Poppy Seed Sunshine Waffles of Happiness! Wish me luck, please!

****Update I****

Well, I won't be preserving this recipe. Today's waffles were not happy, or sunshiny. These waffles were dense and rubbery. Lemon Poppy Seed Sunshine Waffles of Happiness are light, with crisp edges and a soft, airy inside. So. Something with today's attempt went sadly wrong. Before I try again, I will be reading up on egg to flour ratios, for waffle bliss. How do you like your waffles of happiness?

****Update II****

Too many eggs? I used three, small ones, but this promising looking recipe calls for only one egg. I'm also looking for one of those handy cooking charts that compares how many eggs you use and the effect it has on the texture of what you're baking. Seems like something that could be found on Pinterest.

I often have the same problem.I just throw ingredients together, then when I end up loving the way it turns out I have to go back and try to remember what I did.
