Lemon Ricotta Waffles

I posted a blueberry sauce recipe the other day and these waffles are what I made to go with it.  The light lemon waffles and the blueberries with a hint of lemon are a perfect compliment to one another.

Lemon Ricotta Waffles

1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp lemon zest
2 large eggs, separated
3 tbsp butter, melted and cooled
2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 cup ricotta
1 cup milk

Sift all dry ingredients and zest into a large bowl.  In a small bowl, beat egg whites until light and fluffy.  Gradually mix milk, egg yolks, butter, ricotta, lemon juice and beaten egg whites into dry ingredients.

Bake per your waffle makers instructions.
