My kids absolutely love their pancakes, waffles, french toast, or crepes topped with strawberry sauce (they get this love from their Papa Loren, who LOVES strawberry sauce too). I made a batch this weekend and needless to say, they LOVED it! This sauce takes minutes to make and will make your breakfast treats taste so amazing. It’s really wonderful on top of ice cream too.
How to Make Strawberry Sauce
Heat the water, sugar, corn starch, lemon zest, and juice in a saucepan over medium heat, whisk until well combined. Add the sliced strawberries and stir often, mashing some of the berries, for 5-7 minutes. Remove from the heat and let it cool for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy.
- ¼ cup of water
- ¼ cup of sugar **Use less if the berries are really sweet
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- Zest and juice from 1/2 a lemon
- 16 oz of fresh strawberries cleaned, hulled, & quartered

Ohhhh yum! I would use this on waffles, french toast, and pancakes! Looks lovely Pam.
I have 2 pints of strawberries in the fridge. Looks like deliciousness is coming soon.
Lovely sauce, Pam, I guess it would’t make it to the waffles at my place 😉
What a gorgeous looking sauce……. I bet it would go great on some vanilla ice cream too!!! YUM!!!
This looks great. I wonder how the calories compares to (real) maple syrup which I tend to drown my pancakes in 🙂 ? Do you know?
I am sorry, I don’t know.
I calculated the calories for this recipie in the myfitnesspal app and I found it to be 375 calories for the whole recipe as listed above. Hope that helps you… 6 years later. ;P
This looks lovely! Do you know if I could just substitute other berries (such as blueberries)?
I think blueberries would be fabulous in this sauce!
cornstarch is so magical. this is the perfect cheesecake topping, among other things. 🙂
Oh, now you’re talking Pam! I would put this on EVERYTHING!
Yum, I would pour this all over a big bowl of vanilla ice cream!!!
Ooooh I could find so many things to top this off with!
I noticed the lemon with the ingredients – is lemon juice part of the recipe? I personally love to add it to sauces…
Thanks for letting me know! I just added it to the recipe.
I’m making waffles this weekend and now I”m thinking this sauce needs to go on them in lieu of syrup!
Amazing! Your kids sure know what’s good for them!
I love making strawberry sauce..or any fruit sauce for that matter! YUM

You think this could be frozen with no problem? I’m guessing, yes…What do you think?
It never lasts long enough to freeze but I am guessing, yes. Let me know how it turns out.
