Lemon Meringue Waffles with Strawberry Syrup

I should have called these Lemon "Meringue-less" because there is no meringue but I did use the Lemon custard that you would find in Lemon Meringue pie.  Meringue is not my favorite - too sweet for my taste - but you could make a Meringue cookie & place on top of this waffle!

I used the Belgian Waffle maker that was a gift from my parents - click HERE to view.

The recipe that I'm sharing today is just for the Lemon Custard Dollop - I will share my waffle batter recipe in a different post.

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup water
2 egg yolks (lightly whisked)
2 tablespoons butter
juice from 1 large lemon
1 teaspoon lemon rind (grated)
Strawberry Syrup (click HERE to learn how to make your own Strawberry Syrup)

In a medium saucepan combine the sugar & cornstarch.  Slowly add the water while stirring all the time.  Place on medium heat and stir until it comes to a boil - then remove the pan from the heat.  Now you will need to "temper" the yolks - take 1/3 of the hot mixture & whisk into the egg yolks (whisking all the time until combined) - now add this egg yolk mixture into the remaining hot mixture in the saucepan & whisk until combined.  Return to the heat & boil for 1 minute.  Turn off the heat & stir in the butter, lemon rind & lemon juice - stir until the butter has melted & is totally mixed in.

To Assemble - Place a warm waffle on a plate - spoon a dollop of lemon custard & then pour Strawberry syrup on top!  Serve immediately & ENJOY!
