I’m in love.

I didn’t plan to fall in love this way.

I was actually hoping for Bjork to fall in love with this homemade blueberry sauce as it dripped off of a stack of Sunday morning Swedish pancakes.  But I fell for my own trick, and now my lips are stained purple and I can’t stop drowning foods in blueberry sauce.

As you maybe noticed from the list of top ten friends for homemade blueberry sauce, I’ve gotten really creative in the last 24 hours.  Chances are good that I’m going to turn into a Willy Wonka blueberry any minute now.  It was all worth it.

Love is a beautiful thing.

Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6

  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ tablespoons cornstarch dissolved into 3 tablespoons water
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  1. Place 1½ cups blueberries in a small saucepan. Cover with water and add sugar. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a low boil and blueberries just start to break apart.
  2. Add dissolved cornstarch to saucepan and bring mixture to a rolling boil. Turn heat down and simmer on low heat for 2-3 minutes, or until sauce reaches desired consistency. Add water, one tablespoon at a time, if the sauce gets too thick.
  3. Remove from heat. Add remaining blueberries and stir gently. Serve warm or cold.

  1. This looks amazing! My son LOVES blueberries so he will enjoy this. I like to buy frozen organic blueberries because they’re a little cheaper than fresh ones so it’s good to see you can use frozen blueberries too.

  3. This looks so delicious! I just picked up some organic frozen blueberries on sale two days ago…definitely going to use them for this!

  4. That blueberry sauce looks so gloriously glazed and chunky. But to tell you the truth, I’m crushing on the edges of those Swedish pancakes!

  27. I was just wondering when to add the vanilla? It’s listed in the ingredients, but I don’t see when to add it in the recipe?

  28. I LOVE everything about your blog. Here’s a list:

    1. Really amazing recipes.
    2. I love how helpful you guys are.
    3. I love all the advice you give.
    4. I love how generous you are with all the information.
    5. There’s more.. But I shall leave that for another day.

    I just started my own blog and we draw a lot of inspiration from you. After following some of your advice our site visitors went from 19/day to 300/day. That was huge for us, and we are just about a month and a half old.

    Why did I decide to comment on THIS recipe?
    It’s very similar to something I made couple of weeks ago. The picture is so similar. So I felt we had common ground. :)

    Thanks Lindsay and Bjork for your wonderful work.

    PS: I never leave such long comments. I’m just overwhelmed right now.

  29. this is amazing

  30. Thanks for this! I was in a rush trying to get breakfast done before an appointment. This was so simple and quick to make. My boyfriend really liked it. He even asked me how I made it and asked if he could eat the rest (which he ended up doing). I served it with oatmeal pancakes and scrambled eggs with onions.
    I split the recipe in half and did not read the first part about placing only have the berries in water and sugar so I threw all of them in. I also didn’t know when to add the vanilla (how I said, rushing for an appointment) so I threw it in at some point. Still came out great. Seems like it’s hard to mess up this recipe.

  31. Would I be able to can this recipe?



  32. This recipe was delish! I made it this morning for our pancakes and it was a big hit! It made quite a bit too so I put the rest in a mason jar and put it in the fridge. Great recipe and very easy to make!
