  • When selecting shortening, choose a brand that is free from trans fats.
  • For the best flavor, use freshly squeezed lemon juice or lemon extract for the flavoring.

  • Substitute the shortening for 1/2 cup of melted butter. This will add a richer flavor to the waffles and help the batter to stay moist.
  • Substitute the 1/2 teaspoon of lemon flavoring for 1/2 teaspoon of orange flavoring. This will add a subtle citrus flavor to the waffles and make them more flavorful.

Chocolate Pound Cake Waffles Add 1/2 cup cocoa powder to the dry ingredients, and use 1 teaspoon of chocolate flavoring in place of the lemon flavoring.
