Homemade Blueberry Sauce

This blueberry sauce is so good, you’ll want to eat it alone.  This is perfect over blueberry casserole, ice cream and even on your yogurt. Serve it on top of your pancakes or waffles as well.

The recipe doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and will come together quickly.  You can definitely begin making this while you let the blueberry casserole bake and serve warm.  If you want it hot, begin cooking it about halfway through the casserole baking.

You can make this recipe with fresh or frozen blueberries.  It will take a little longer for the blueberries to cook if they are frozen (because they have to thaw), but it works just the same.

Mixing the dry ingredients together before adding the water keeps the cornstarch from clumping.

You can now put this on your warm blueberry French toast casserole. Or wait for it to cool to serve as an ice cream topping or in yogurt.

How Sweet Is Blueberry Sauce?

The blueberry sauce is not so sweet that you can’t use your favorite maple syrup.  You can still butter your breakfast too.

Can You Use Frozen Blueberries?

You can.  When you use fresh blueberries, the blueberry sauce will come together quicker if you use fresh though.  The fresh berries don’t need to thaw.

Once the blueberry mix begins to boil, you will want to squish the blueberries to release their juices.

Can You Add Lemon Zest?

Absolutely!  Adding a little lemon zest would give it another level of flavor and work well with the blueberries. If you want to boost the flavor more, add a tablespoon of lemon juice too.
