    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 use this on pancakes, I mix it in oatmeal and use it on vanilla ice cream. Delicious!

    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.
