Ever wondered how to make blueberry syrup for pancakes? This super easy syrup from scratch is also the best blueberry syrup for desserts. If fact, it’s so good you may just want to put it on everything!
I’ve been dying make blueberry syrup for awhile now. I started with strawberry syrup and couldn’t believe how easy it was! Since then, I’ve been planning to make homemade blueberry syrup for breakfast but it kept getting pushed to the bottom of my to-do list.
Now I’ve finally got around to making it and WOW, I’m really glad I did. I took one taste of this and immediately texted my hubby that I’d just made the best syrup recipe EVER. I’m not kidding, this stuff is really good, especially when you make these awesome waffles with cream cheese!
Homemade Blueberry Syrup
Start with a cup of fresh blueberries. I know it’s hard not to eat them all straight from the bowl but to contain yourself…you need them for the recipe!
Before you start cooking, mix a tablespoon of corn starch with water until it dissolves. This will help thicken your syrup. Set aside.
Combine blueberries, sugar and water in a saucepan and simmer over medium-low heat.
Once berries soften and liquid begins to thicken, stir the corn starch into the berry mixture.
When it reaches a syrupy consistency, remove from heat and let cool for about five minutes. The blueberry syrup will thicken slightly as it cools.
This blueberry syrup recipe is so delish that you’re going to want to put it on EVERYTHING!
I used it to make these totally mouthwatering waffles but but it can also double as a blueberry sauce for ice cream, cheesecake or any other dessert that goes well with blueberries.
Now that you know how to make blueberry syrup at home, the syrup at the pancake restaurants will never taste the same. This totally blows theirs away!
How Long Does Homemade Blueberry Syrup Last
If you’re storing blueberry syrup in the refrigerator, seal it well and it will keep at least a week. I’ve seen others say that it keeps much longer but I’d probably just keep it a week (though it never lasts that long in the refrigerator!). However, you can also freeze blueberry syrup and if you do that, and it’s sealed tightly, it should keep for at least six months.
