As promised, I am delivering another fantastic waffle sandwich today. My previous post was all about a savory waffle sandwich, green eggs and bacon. Today’s goal to satisfy the sweet tooth with lemon cream and berries waffle sandwich. This creation is another inspired by a famous waffle sandwich restaurant, Bruxie, based in Southern California. Although I was unable to try their version, I imagine it to taste somewhat similar to what I have created: intense tart and sweet lemon custard sandwiched with fresh raspberries and blackberries in a crispy waffle. This waffle is just as delicious as it sounds and looks, I guarantee it!

    Lemon cream
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • Waffles
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Remaining ingredients
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blackberries


  1. Combine milk and lemon zest in a small saucepan over low heat and bring to a soft simmer.
  2. Whisk egg yolks, sugar, flour, and cornstarch. Add milk to the eggs in a slow, steady stream while constantly whisking. Avoid adding the milk too quickly or the eggs will scramble. Add vanilla and lemon juice, stirring to combine. Cover with plastic wrap directly touching the surface and let cool completely.
  3. Prepare the waffle batter. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix just until combined. Let batter rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat waffle maker and pour batter to make 3-4 waffles.
  5. Assemble waffle sandwiches. Spread lemon curd on half of the waffle. Top with fresh berries and fold in half. Serve immediately.

**Helpful tips and common mistakes

The waffles used for this recipe is the same ones used for my green eggs and bacon waffle sandwich. The waffles are a perfect density, crispy and just a tad sweet, making it an ideal base for waffle sandwiches. For details on how to prepare the waffles, click here

The difference between lemon cream and lemon custard is that lemon cream has a more intense lemon flavor and has a silkier consistency. Lemon cream has the addition of lemon extract, producing a much richer, more pronounced lemon flavor.

Once the cream and waffles are prepared, sandwich with fresh berries and serve. This sandwich can be served hot, warm or cold; it’ll be delicious at any temperature! I also made a version with blueberries and bananas but found the best combination was with raspberries and blackberries. This waffle sandwich is just the perfect amount of sweetness, tartness, and just darn delicious. Can I have another, please?
