We had friends over for dinner recently and I decided to make it fun for the kids by serving waffles for dinner. I had some fresh blueberries in the refrigerator so I made a tasty blueberry sauce to top our waffles. The sauce was filled with juicy blueberries and was absolutely delicious. It would also be fantastic on pancakes, French toast, crepes, or ice cream too. Needless to say, this sauce was gobbled up quickly and everybody loved it.
How to Make Blueberry Sauce
Mix the cornstarch with the water until well combined. Pour the water mixture, blueberries, sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest into a pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes or until thick and some of the blueberries are bursting. Remove from the heat and let cool. Spoon over your waffle, pancake, French toast, crepe, or ice cream. Enjoy.
- ½ cup of water

I’m so happy to see big boxes of blueberries starting to show up at the market. Just bought two cartons yesterday. This sauce sounds like a wonderful way to utilize some of them. I can think of a zillion ways to use this sauce, it sounds amazing!

I love blueberry sauce on cheesecake!
I cam up with exactly this formula a few weeks back, and used it as filling for coffee cake. It was wonderful.
Oh my goodness. I love making pancakes, but I am always so boring and top them with maple syrup. THIS WEEKEND WILL BE DIFFERENT! This is SO on my to-do list!
So happy it is blueberry season here. Love your sauce and I would definitely use it over pancakes.

Yum! I adore sauces like these! I just made a similar one with strawberries for a cookie experiment and we have a ton leftover. I’ll have to try it on waffles today 🙂
Homemade blueberry sauce would definitely make waffles special!

I’m all about fruity sauces instead of maple syrup! I would be very tempted to drink this.
