Great blueberry sauce - mine needed a little more liquid which I added and it was just perfect to place on top of a cheesecake.

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.
