Blueberry Sauce

Blueberry Sauce with shortcake

Served over Old Fashioned Shortcakes

My husband’s Aunt Mary is an awesome cook (and a great friend of mine). She has given me countless recipes. My all time favorite from her is the Angel Food Cake, from scratch, of course. (I will share it soon) I have received many ribbons at our County Fair with that recipe and she has also.

A little while ago, she emailed me this recipe for blueberry sauce. It’s a really quick and easy treat, since I had blueberries in the freezer. It’s delicious over ice cream, but you could also use it on pancakes, waffles, shortcakes or even that Angel Food Cake.


  • 2 c. Blueberries
  • 1/3 c. Sugar
  • 2 T. Water
  • 1 1/2 t. Cornstarch
  • 1 t. Lemon Juice

Combine 1 cup berries, sugar, water and cornstarch in saucepan on top of stove. Heat through and simmer for 1-2 minutes.

Add the remaining cup of berries and lemon juice.

Even though school has started for my boys, the summer is still here and hot as ever.


  1. This sounds so good! I’v never had blue berry sauce, but I can’t wait to try it. And I’m looking forward to trying the angel food cake!

    As for the heat, I know what you mean! This has indeed been a hot week. It was so nice yesterday to feel the cooler air. Enjoy your share! 🙂

  2. I am just eating some blueberry sauce over my waffles this morning — I love it even better than syrup. Yummy.

    I got the popsicle molds at Bed, Bath and Beyond. They have a couple molds on their webpage, and stock at least one in the store where I live! I’ve seen some at target too, but I like how sturdy these are.

  3. YUM! That sounds pretty much like the base I use for my blueberry pie, I just don’t cook it. I love blueberry with lemon. So fresh and summery!

  4. Oh I love a good sauce, and I don’t have a good one for a blueberry sauce at that! And your pictures certainly make it look yummy!

  5. Oh, I love blueberry sauce. My daughter has been asking for it every time we make waffles or pancakes. YUM!
