Blueberry Sauce

Cozycakes Cottage: Blueberry Sauce

We’re finally expecting a little rain.  Can’t wait!  We got a bit of sprinkling, but that won’t do it.  For me, there really are very few things as lovely as being home when the rain is pouring down.  Especially when it rains a full day and night.  So that no matter what I’m doing–cooking, sleeping, reading–I can listen to the restorative, oft undervalued rain falling on the roof, dripping off the gutters, smacking the windows in the wind.


I’m still purging and deep cleaning…slowly.  I’m managing to get a little crafting in, enjoying lots of reading, and just soaking up some good family time.  Now I’m ready to soak up some rain!

Here’s a recipe for a simple fruity sauce we enjoy around here.  We top waffles with it as well as French toast, ice cream, yogurt, pancakes, cheesecake…you get it.  It’s perfect when you buy the giant container of blueberries and need to use up the last few.  A happy problem.  ♥

Blueberry Sauce

Blueberry Sauce
Easy and delicious! Pour it over whatever you like...;)
Recipe type: Dessert Sauce
  • 2 cups blueberries, rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar (or more if you prefer it sweeter)
  • 1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. cold water
  • 1.5 tsp. cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp. vanilla
  1. In a saucepan, bring the berries, sugar, and and lemon juice to a boil and turn down to a simmer (the berries will sort of being to pop and create their own juices--you can help them along a bit by pressing on a few of them, but don't squish them all!). Mix the water and cornstarch together. Add to berries and mix gently to combine. Add vanilla and continue to simmer another 2-3 minutes until mixture thickens. Enjoy!
I like to serve it warm, but it can be served cold as well. Store in the refrigerator.
