This blueberry sauce is only 6 ingredients and is so easy to make. It's the perfect blueberry topping to go on top of pancakes, french toast, ice cream, cheesecake, and more!
- 3 cups fresh blueberries (frozen works too)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 TBS cornstarch
- 1 1/2 TBS cold water
- 1 tsp lemon zest (optional)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Add the blueberries, water, sugar, and lemon juice into a medium sized pot. Heat over medium heat until the mixture starts to boil.
Lower the temperature to medium low, and continue simmering for a couple minutes until the blueberries start to break apart, stirring occasionally.
Stir together the cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl to make a slurry.
Pour the slurry into the blueberry sauce and carefully stir it in to the mixture.
Continue to cook for 4 to 6 minutes until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. (At least make sure the sauce will coat the back of a metal spoon).
Remove from heat and stir in the lemon zest or vanilla extract, if desired.
Allow to cool to room temperature (sauce will thicken as it cools), then transfer into a container with a lid and place in the fridge till needed, or serve immediately.
