Beer Waffle Recipe

Ok, im quoting this recipe from Beth Hensperger's book: "The Bread Bible" (and YES, i know that magazines have quotes and BOOks have underlines)
Anyway, the book rocks,. If you love to bake, there are so many wonderful recipes in here. So, this is more props that plagerism. (so dont sue me for copying or my bad spelling)
oh, and before you start, note that you need to do all the prep the night before. The batter needs to ferment a bit :)

BEER WAFFLES
(makes 6 to 8 waffles)

2 cups unbleached All purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
Zest of 1 grated lemon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 3/4 cups beer, not flat
2 large eggs
8 TBS (1 stick) butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, lemon zest, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, combine the beer and eggs with a whisk. Pour into the dry mixture, stirring to moisten evenly. Gently stir in the melted butter, lemon juice, and vanilla. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or as much as overnight.

Heat waffle iron, and brush with butter (or spray with Pam, or something). without stirring down the batter, pour about 1 cup of batter into the iron. (Or whatever amount you usually pour in your iron) Close the lid and bake until crisp and golden, about 4 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve hot. (Waffles may be cooled and frozen for up to 2 months)

**ok, so i added some words :) anyway: my tip is: DO NOT OVERCOOK the waffle. I did on the first one. I can set my iron from 1-5, on the cook time. 3 worked the best. 4 made the waffle taste like burnt beer. mmm, yuck. these waffle have a very interesting and unique sour flavor. wonderful with maple syrup or honey! :)
