Lemon Corn Waffles with Blueberry Sauce

waffles

From the moment I saw this recipe, I knew I would be making it. I had a bite of a corn waffle at The Hen House back in August and immediately regretted having chose the buttermilk waffle. Corn waffles are SO flavorful.

It’s unusual for me to feel motivated to make breakfast (other than a bowl of oatmeal) but with the warm weather this weekend, I couldn’t resist. These waffles were outstanding. They were delicate yet filling and the lemon complemented the blueberry sauce so well.

  1. That photo is just gorgeous. I adore cornmeal in sweet treats, and haven’t had waffles in years and years and years! Wish I could justify buying a waffle maker!

  2. I think I have a breakfast-for-dinner date with these babies in my future. and, yeah. What is better than corn in a waffle? Corn in a waffle topped with those DELICIOUS blueberries!
