Lemon Corn Waffles with Blueberry Sauce


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.

Blueberry Sauce

  • 1 1/2 T. arrowroot powder
  • 1 lb frozen blueberries, partially thawed
  • 1/2 c. maple syrup/agave blend
  • 1 t. vanilla extract

In a small saucepan off the heat, toss arrowroot powder with blueberries until it is mostly dissolved. Mix occasionally, should be done in ~5 minutes. Over medium heat, cook until moisture is released and blueberries are warmed. Add maple syrup/agave blend and vanilla. Heat for a few more minutes until sauce has thickened to desired consistency.


  1. Those sound amazing. Will have to make soon - as soon as we have a kitchen again! Gives me one more thing to look forward to.

  2. 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!

  3. YUM! I wish that was my breakfast! Looks great!

  4. Wow! I recently tried some cornmeal pancakes but I'd much rather have had waffles, especially ones with lemon and topped with blueberry! :)

  5. These sound and look delicious! I wish I had a waffle iron...

  6. 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!

  7. wow, the waffles look so crisp and the blueberry sauce looks delicious.
