Wondered if they would be good as waffles, Thanks Crystal.

Hi Joy, pancake batter is a little bit different than waffle batter, so we wouldn't suggest trying to put it in a waffle maker. However, we do have a waffle recipe with lemon zest - search "Sun Honey Waffles" on our website and the recipe will pop up. Happy baking!

I was a little short on lemon peel, but I don't think that would have saved this recipe. Won't make it again.
