Light and yummy waffles that go good with the blueberry sauce or just good old maple syrup!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Homemade waffles are an easy breakfast. These lemon poppy seed ones with a simple blueberry sauce on top are amazing. The waffles themselves are slightly lemony. Just enough to give them a fresh flavor. They're perfectly crisp on the outside, light and airy on the inside. The blueberry sauce is thick, sweet and full of berries. It's almost like a blueberry pie filling that is spooned on top of the waffles. This breakfast recipe is simple to throw together and has a beautiful presentation. We added a few extra fresh berries and a little whipped cream too. So good! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
