Author Adapted from Cooking Light


  • 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter + extra for coating waffle iron
  • 2 Tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon zest + extra for garnish
  • 1 Tablespoon + 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Cup blueberries + extra for garnish
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 200ºF.
  2. Mix dry ingredients (flour, 2 Tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and salt) in a large bowl.
  3. Combine wet ingredients (milk, ricotta cheese, melted butter, canola oil, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, lemon zest and egg) in a medium sized bowl.
  4. Make a well in the dry ingredients, add wet ingredients to the well, and combine until moistened.
  5. Coat waffle iron with melted butter or cooking spray, to create a nonstick surface.
  6. Spoon waffle batter onto waffle iron (use amount suggested by your waffle iron manufacturer). How much you need to use per waffle will impact how many waffles you get...
  7. Cook until golden (my waffle iron has a timer, if yours does not, the cook time will be anywhere between 3-5 minutes).
  8. Place waffles on a plate in the 200ºF oven to keep warm.
  9. Repeat until batter has been used up and you have a plate of golden waffles
  10. In a small saucepan, combine blueberries, 2 Tablespoons of sugar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice.
  11. Bring blueberry mixture to a boil.
  12. Use a spatula, fork or wooden spoon (be careful here, your wooden spoon could get stained!) to mash the blueberries.
  13. Simmer for 3-5 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly.
  14. Serve waffles with syrup, garnish with additional blueberries and lemon zest!
