Happy National Pancake day lets smother them in some homemade blueberry sauce! Yummy!
The pancakes we will be pouring our blueberry sauce over is Krusteaz brand we have used this product for years. They are simple just add water pancakes and they work for us. Homemade is way better but I choose the easy way out because my time is limited most days. These still have a nice taste and texture. I’m not getting paid to tell you this Krusteaze could care less I’m telling you this LOL. I’m just telling you because in my real daily life this is what I use.
I’m not going to waste your time telling you how to make pancakes. I am going to skip right to my most favorite topper for those yummy pancakes.
Wild Maine Blueberry Sauce
Wild Maine, blueberries they are what I had on hand frozen. You can use blueberries from where ever they grow. You can use fresh. Or you can indeed use frozen it makes no difference at all.
This right here is my little pancake making partner who insisted she taste test these very blue blueberries.
Seems harmless enough right? I mean they are just blueberries. Yup Blue stains everywhere. My floors enjoyed them more so than her and her mouth and hands were blue for much of the day regardless of scrubbing.
So onto the recipe. Your needs are pretty basic.
3 cups of fresh or frozen blueberries
1 cup of cold water
1/2 a cup of white granulated sugar
1 1/2 TBS of corn starch dissolved in 2 TBSP cold water
1 teaspoon Vanilla
In a heavy sauce pan add your blueberries, water, and sugar over medium-high heat bring the mixture to a boil stirring occasionally. Once boiling add the dissolved cornstarch and vanilla. Then continue to boil and stir until thickened about two or three minutes. If the mixture thickens too much add 1 TBSP of water at a time until it is thinner. On the other hand, if you wish for a thicker sauce a teaspoon more cornstarch would help. It is simply preference. I thought it was perfect as it was.
Serve warm or cold over pancakes.
Better yet, if it’s not National Pancake Day serve it over a nice cold scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Either way, it tastes like heaven on earth.
