blackberry sauce for pancakes

Denny’s got nothing on me! Last weekend, we started off the first weekend of 2014 right with….pancakes!! I had two packages of blackberries in the fridge so I decided to make a fresh blackberry sauce to top off the pancakes. It was so easy to make and deliciously sweet even though there wasn’t that much sugar in the sauce.


  • 2 cups of blackberries
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1.5 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of corn starch

Cook the blackberries, sugar, and water in a non-stick medium sauce pan on high for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently. In a separate tiny bowl, stir the lemon juice and corn starch together. Afterwards, pour the lemon corn starch mixture into the sauce pan. Keep stirring until the sauce becomes thicker. Once the sauce reaches a full boil, remove the sauce pan from the heat. The sauce will thicken as it cools and look something similar to this:

Once the sauce cools, drizzle generously over your pancakes. Yum!
