      To prepare blackberry sauce, stir together blackberries, sugar (2 tbsp), and lemon juice in a small saucepan over medium heat; if using fresh blackberries, add 2 tablespoons water. Bring to a simmer, stirring and crushing berries with the back of a wooden spoon. Simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until sugar is dissolved and berries begin to break down. Transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse until smooth. Press through a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds. Sauce can be made a day ahead and refrigerated in an airtight container; warm in a saucepan over low heat prior to serving.

      Preheat a Belgian waffle iron according to manufacturer’s instructions. Drop about 1/2 cup batter onto iron for each waffle (more or less depending on the size of your iron), and cook until outside is crispy. Serve warm, drizzled with blackberry sauce and topped with more blackberries and freshly whipped cream, if desired.
