Lemon Blueberry Waffles

Oh man, it has been a while since I broke out my waffle maker. Marc and I have been craving them, so it was time. For me, it is that weird time of year where I am really looking forward to fall and want pumpkin everything but I also am trying to hold on to summer. After my more fall friendly cinnamon buttermilk donuts, it was time for a bright and fresh tasting summer breakfast. These lemon blueberry waffles fit the bill perfectly! Fluffy and simple to make, they were a wonderful way to still keep a hold on that sunshine feeling.

The batter came together really quickly. I whisked my dry ingredients together in a large bowl before I poured in lots of lemon zest, lemon juice, buttermilk and eggs. All of that became a gorgeous batter. Finally, I simply folded in a heaping cup of juicy, fresh blueberries.
Have I mentioned how much I absolutely adore my waffle maker? I use it for lots of other things besides waffles. This time though it was used for its intended purpose and it never fails me. It took about 5 minutes for the waffle batter to puff up and cook to perfection. The batter ended up yielding 4 big, gorgeous puffy waffles.

I topped them with a heaping spread of lemon curd and more fresh berries on top. Store bought lemon curd works fine, or you could also make my recipe ahead of time to have it ready! Oh my goodness, these babies were brunch perfection. The tart lemon was just so good with the sweet blueberries. That lemon curd was such a wonderful alternative topping to syrup. Hope you all love them too! xoxo
