Brighten up your family's Sunday brunch with these lemon poppyseed waffles. Made with Colavita Olive Oil instead of butter and paired with a rich blueberry compote, this recipe is another selection from our Better Than Butter recipe collection.
Bring blueberries, ½ cup orange juice and sugar to boil in heavy medium saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until reduced to 2 cups, about 15 minutes.
Dissolve cornstarch in remaining 2 tablespoons orange juice; add to blueberry mixture. Add lemon juice. Bring to boil, stirring constantly. Simmer until thick, about 1 minute. Cool slightly.
Whisk first 6 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, olive oil and lemon peel in small bowl to blend. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to flour mixture and whisk until just blended. Let mixture stand 15 minutes.
Preheat waffle iron according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon batter onto waffle iron.
Cover and cook until golden and cooked through, about 6 to 7 minutes (cooking time will vary, depending on waffle iron).
Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately with warm blueberry citrus syrup and fresh raspberries.
