Any Berry Sauce

Posted on

I was making my favorite buttermilk pancakes a couple Saturdays ago and near the end of the process, I suddenly remembered a recipe for blueberry sauce I’d gotten in an email from Alice’s Savory Sweet Life blog. The gorgeous pictures of the sauce sitting atop a pile of pancakes was still fresh in my mind even three weeks after seeing it, and I knew I had to make it for my own pancakes. Dennis was totally willing to wait an extra ten minutes so I could whip up the sauce.

I only had a bag of mixed frozen berries, which worked very well with the recipe. The blueberries kept their shape along with a few of the blackberries and the raspberries and most of the blackberries cooked down to flavor the sauce and fleck it with pretty seeds.  Feel free to use whatever berries you have, frozen or not, to make this simple and amazing sauce. 

Any Berry Sauce
recipe adapted from Savory Sweet Life

Ingredients:

2 cups fresh or frozen berries of your choice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons grated orange zest/rind (optional, though Alice recommends it for the blueberry sauce)

Directions:

Cook blueberries, sugar, and water on medium-high heat for 10, minutes stirring occasionally. Turn heat off and stir in orange rind. Serve immediately while warm. Makes approx. 1 1/4 cups of sauce.

Ideas for berries: blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, cranberries, lingonberries or a mixture of any of these.  I think cherries would also work well and would be awesome on top of chocolate pancakes. :)

  1. I LOVE fresh berry sauce on pancakes! (It’s also fantastic as a filling for crepes.) Your sauce looks perfect, I love the whole chunks of fruit.

    • I never had it until now and I love it too! Hey, great idea with the crepes. I thought of using it on pound cake with some whipped cream too.

  3. What a great and easy recipe. This may turn into a saturday morning classic for us. (I mean I haven’t tried it, but I assume if you posted the recipe that it will be yummy)
