Blueberry Sauce

blueberry sauce recipeI made a cake recently for a friend and it involved lots of yellow buttermilk cake, lemon filling, berries, and whipped cream. It was divine and I will share it with you soon, I promise. You could say that I had a few berries at my house that I needed to use and this is one of the things that I made with the leftover berries. By a few, I mean a TON. Costco size boxes of berries. This sauce did my blueberries justice. This sauce is simple to put together, and takes about 20 minutes from idea to table. I can think of lots of ways to play with this one. On pancakes obviously, over some ice cream, or you could do something savory like add some chipotle pepper and serve it over fish or my favorite cream cheese. This sauce is not overly sweet and you get a hint of cinnamon because we used sticks, not ground cinnamon. It will definitely become a regular at my breakfast table for sure.

blueberry sauce recipeI wanted a really smooth sauce so I put it through a sieve. You really don’t have to do this step, but I thought a smoother sauce would go over better with my children. It can be hard to give up maple syrup. My daughter needs to go to Maple Syrup Anonymous. So there you have it. A really simple and delicious blueberry sauce to change up your morning pancake.

  • First things first, I love, love, love your food blog!
    Secondly – there is a restaurant where we get blueberry pancakes with blueberry syrup – and the blueberry syrup has just a hint of cinnamon, it is out of this world! The only way to describe it is to say it tastes like Christmas morning! I have been thinking about trying to make my own blueberry syrup, but didn’t know where to start, so this is perfect!! Will definitely be trying it out soon! 🙂

    • Thank you…Christmas morning is a really good way to describe it!

  • This sounds wonderful. Especially since I’m going to u-pick blueberries this week!

  • I just made blueberry pancakes over the weekend and wanted to do a blackberry sauce but ran out of time. This looks SO tasty.

  • I am going to put mine thru sieve also because of kids! They can join your daughter at syrup anonymous. Do you think this can be frozen like a freezer jam would be?

    • Lol. I am not sure about freezing it like a jam, but I guessing that you could. I would check the Ball website to be sure.

  • Hi

    I would like to bottle this for Christmas presents, will it keep in sterilised bottles?
