Lemon Poppyseed Waffles with Blueberry Sauce

At first I was totally intrigued by this recipe then I got nervous. Gray was excited about it though so I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. They are so unexpected because they aren't very sweet but it's a good thing. They were really refreshing on a hot night. Recipe from The Nesting Project.

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
6 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp grated lemon peel

Whisk first 6 ingredients in large bowl. Whisk together eggs, buttermilk, melted butter and lemon peel in small bowl. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to flour mixture and whisk until combined. Let mixture stand for 15 minutes. Preheat waffle iron according to instructions and spoon batter into waffle iron. Cook through. Top with warm blueberry sauce.
