2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon.
Whisk in milk, eggs and vanilla extract.

Blueberry Jam Sauce: In a microwave-safe bowl, stir together 1/2 cup blueberry
jam or preserves, 2 tablespoons orange juice and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Heat on
HIGH until warm, about 30 seconds. Or, in a small saucepan, stir ingredients
together and cook over medium heat until warm, about 3 minutes.
