Plus it adds a creamy taste and helps to decrease the eggy flavor from the egg.Fresh squeezed lemon juice and zest are added to this chaffle to give it an authentic lemon flavor. If you don’t have a lemon, you could substitute with bottled lemon juice and omit the zest; however, the chaffle might not have as concentrated of a lemon flavor.

This waffle maker by Oster is an excellent option. It has an adjustable temperature knob so you can crank up the heat to get a crisp waffle.Chaffle Making Tip #1: Pour the waffle batter in the center of the waffle maker. Don’t try to spread it out. The chaffle batter will spread out on its own once the waffle maker is closed.Chaffle Making Tip #2: There is no need to grease the waffle iron before cooking chaffles.
