This easy Blueberry Sauce recipe is a delicious topper for waffles, cheesecakes and so much more! Made with juicy blueberries and fresh lemon juice, this crave-worthy sauce comes together in minutes.



  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp water, divided
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 6 tbsp (78g) sugar
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 cups (277g) blueberries


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tablespoon of water and the cornstarch. Set aside.
  2. Combine the sugar, remaining 1/2 cup of water and lemon juice in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat and stir to combine. Heat the mixture until the sugar is melted.
  3. Add the blueberries and continue to cook. Let the blueberries start to soften and release their juices.
  4. When the blueberry juices have released and the mixture is starting to look more sauce-like, add the cornstarch mixture.
  5. Continue cooking and remove from heat when the sauce begins to thicken and can coat the back of a metal spoon.
  6. Serve the sauce warm over pancakes, waffles, cheesecakes, etc or refrigerate until ready to use later.


Makes about 1 1/2 cups of sauce.
