Blueberry Sauce


These pancakes tasted like dessert when I topped them with this delicious Blueberry Sauce and whipped cream! My homegrown Blueberries were used in this recipe but you can use fresh store bought or even frozen. This sauce isnโ€™t just for pancakes. Put it on waffles, ice cream or what ever you desire.






In a small saucepan, over medium heat,

add the blueberries, sugar and apple juice.



In a small bowl, whisk the

cornstarch with the cold water.



Pour the cornstarchย mixture

into the blueberries and stir.



Bring to a boil stirring frequently.

Continue to boil stirring constantly until thick.



Remove from the heat and stir

in the cinnamon and vanilla.



Pour over pancakes, waffles, ice cream,

cake or what ever you prefer.

    • They tasted so good Moushmi! My husband actually made the pancakes for our grandson for breakfast. He is only 4 so he only ate one. I had my husband freeze the rest. They didn’t even get to freeze completely when I decide to make the Blueberry sauce and I snatched the pancakes right out of the freezer…..not even frozen yet…lol

    • I personally would refrigerate for up to 5 days only. My husband used to be a health inspector so I am always cautious. You most definitely can freeze it! Just freeze in freezer bags or freezer container making sure all the air is out. It’s funny you ask about freezing because when I made it I was thinking how it would be great to freeze in large ice cube type trays. Once frozen place in a large freezer bag and pop out how many cubes you want for single servings and thaw.

  1. Do you think an equivalent exchange of Boysenberries would work in this recipe? I want to make this too, but now that I live in a rural area I donโ€™t have access to Boysenberry Syrup and miss it. ๐Ÿ™‚ This made me feel nostalgic and you have so much culinary knowledge I thought Iโ€™d pick your brain, if you donโ€™t mind? ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I have never tasted a Boysenberry, isn’t that crazy! I absolutely think it will work though, however, you may have to adjust the sugar. Since I have never tasted them I don’t know how sweet they are.


  2. What a great idea to use apple juice! I make this up pretty often, too, and often add a bit of either lemon or orange peel during the boiling stage. If not too lazy, I grate up a bit of the peel to add at the end, and remove the larger pieces of peel.

    Virtual hugs,

    • Thanks! This was an experiment using the apple juice. I usually used orange juice and wanted to see how it would turn out….fabulous! I bet the orange peel added a lot of flavor. Great idea Judilyn!


  3. Pancakes always taste like dessert! ๐Ÿ™‚ Seriously, nice. I am partial to the wild blueberries from Maine and eastern Canada, but aren’t you lucky to have them in your backyard!

    • I have always wanted to taste them fresh from Maine. We visited Maine years ago but they were out of season so I bought a can of them….lol I am sure it was no comparison to fresh but as I remember the were small and sweet.

  4. Perfectly executed! My blueberry bushes produced gallons of berries this year and I froze most of them. I added some to pancake batter but did not take the time to make a sauce, like you did. Your pancakes look marvelous and I am sure that they taste as good as they look. The thing I take away from this is that I should go the extra mile and make something great, instead of just good. Thanks!
