This easy to make blueberry sauce has that great balance of sweet and tart. There is a hint of lemon and plenty of berries. 

It cooks up quickly with very little effort and is perfect drizzled over so many things. This time we used it on slices of custardy german pancakes.

It is also be great over some vanilla ice cream or a nice slice of creamy vanilla cheesecake.

Can I make this blueberry sauce with other berries?

Yes. Mixed berry sauce is delicious too. You can also try it with strawberries, raspberries and more. Or you can try making my homemade blackberry sauce.

Can I make this a thicker sauce?

Yes. As written, you will have a blueberry sauce that is syrupy and perfect for pancakes etc. If you want a thicker sauce, either just cook it for longer or stir in a slurry made from 1 teaspoon cornstarch and a teaspoon or two of water at the end of the cook time.
