Looking for a blueberry sauce for cheesecake? Look no further! This luscious blueberry topping is perfectly sweetened to put on anything from a scoop of vanilla ice cream to a slice of angel food or pound cake. —Doris Dezur, Eugene, Oregon

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch and salt. Gradually whisk in water until smooth. Add the blueberries, lemon juice and peel; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook 2-3 minutes longer or until thickened, stirring occasionally (some berries will remain whole). Serve warm or chilled over ice cream. Yield: 3/4 cup.

Deliciously easy! Served with pancakes! Made a double batch, using frozen berries. I am a TOH Volunteer Field Editor and I love trying out new recipes!

Delicious and so easy, and it really dresses up the simplest ingredients to make memorable desserts! Try it layered with vanilla pudding and crumbled Biscoff cookies. Yum!

I have made this recipe several times and everytime I do everyone raves about how good it is, especially over blueberry pound cake or just plain pound cake

Very easy and so good! I used coconut sugar instead of white sugar & serve this over Belgian waffles with a little almond butter. Have enough left over to use over ice cream later

I used 2 1/3 cups of berries because that's what I had, didn't increase anything else. It is excellent.

Very easy and delicious way to use all the blueberries in my yard! I made this with a recipe for a sour cream pound cake I found on TOH. Perfection! I doubled the recipe and took it to a family gathering.

This was so easy to make. I made it with splenda and put it on sugar free white chocolate pudding. Yummy!

A friend gave me a container of fresh blueberries I used them to make this sauce and served it with Angel Food cake and with homemade vanilla ice cream on July 4th. It was simple to make (I left out the grated lemon peel & added 1/4 tsp. almond extract) and it was delicious. Friends really liked it, too.
