As some of you already know, a couple of days ago, I made pancakes that were the fluffiest, lightest, happiest pancakes of my life. Although they are the sort of pancakes that are delicious on their own, and they really are, their fabulousness was heightened by this, super-easy, homemade blueberry sauce.

Who knew that it was even possible to make perfection even more perfect…?

This sauce is awesome on the blueberry pancakes, but would also be really tasty served over vanilla frozen yogurt, as a topping for cheesecake, a filling for crepes…yup, he’s a versatile little chap.

If you didn’t rush to your kitchen, yesterday, to whip up the blueberry pancakes, now’s your opportunity to double up on the culinary adventures.

Go, blueberry!
