I thought I’d share this super easy recipe because it’s a staple in our house. If we have pancakes, crepes or waffles I often make this super easy berry sauce. When I was growing up this was something my mom always made. I am going to share the recipe below but please note this is more of a best guess on the measurements as I typically just wing it.
This is a very forgving recipe that doesn’t need exact measurement. You can do more or less sugar depending on your taste and more or less of the cornstarch slurry for your preferred thickness..
2.5 cups of frozen mixed berries (or any type of frozen berries)
3 heaping tablespoons of sugar
1 tsp corn starch mixed with 2 tbsp cold water (cornstarch slurry)
Fill a microwave safe bowl with frozen berries, top with sugar. Heat in microwave for 2-3 minutes. Once berries are completely defrosted & heated through, add cornstarch slurry and return to microwave. Heat until the mixture comes to a boil and it thickened. Stir and set aside to cool for a few minutes.
Note: After you add the cornstart it will make the mixture look a little milky. This color should go away when the mixture has been heated through properly.
Enjoy over your favorite breakfast item. Left overs can be saved in the fridge. This would also be super yummy added to greek yogurt with some granola on top!
