This recipe comes from "The Little RoosterCafe" in Manchester Center, Vermont. The flavors of lemon and blueberry seem to go hand in hand, and that's definately the case in this breakfast treat. Top with maple syrup, if you prefer.

The waffles were not crispy enough for us. DH didn't like the taste of the waffles so much even though he likes lemon taste and poppy seeds. But he said the sauce was very yummy. Me and my son enjoyed them. Thanks Yooper :) Made for Alphabet tag game
