Blueberry Pancake and Waffle Syrup

blueberry_waffle_2

This little gem of a recipe has been tucked away on my Whole Wheat Waffle page for years.  But I decided it needed to be brought out of hiding.  Everyone must know about this.  And you should also whip some cream and plop it onto your waffles with this blueberry syrup because then, you will experience bliss.

Blueberry Syrup

2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1/4 sucanat (dehydrated cane sugar juice)

Stir blueberries and sucanat together in a saucepan over medium heat for about 10 minutes until syrupy.  Serve as is, or blend to make the syrup smooth.

Trying to get ahead?  Make this syrup ahead of time, refrigerate or freeze, then rewarm when ready to serve.

What’s your favorite way to top a waffle?

    It’s kind of a greenish film on the top. BUT, be sure and read the comments on that post I wrote about storing maple syrup in the fridge or freezer. Many suggested that it may still be good!http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/keep-your-maple-syrup-cold-because-you-dont-want-to-pour-mold-on-your-pancakes

    We’re up in NH and we’ve been making our own maple syrup for quite a few years. This past season’s syrup for some reason does have mold on top of it. Just scoop it off…it’s totally fine. Some people boil it for a bit after skimming. I don’t bother. I usually discover the mold as we’re about to eat…making 6 hungry kids wait while their meal gets cold isn’t worth it, not to mention hubby doesn’t like hot syrup! We’ve NEVER had an issue!

    This is our favorite way to eat waffles! I like to dissolve a little cornstarch or arrowroot powder in water first (about a Tblsp. in a cup of water) and add to the blueberries/sweetener in the pan. This makes the sauce a little thicker so it doesn’t soak the waffles and make them soggy!

    Wow, my dad used to get up on Sunday mornings and make blueberry pancakes and blueberry syrup for us. He would use frozen blueberries, the berries were stirred into the batter and then he make the syrup from the juice and some of the smashed berries. we did not have a blender (back in the OOLD days). Some of my fondest memories are those breakfasts. Thanks for posting this, I need to make them for my grands!!!!!!!!!

    IO just looked back on some of your recipes. I came across your fruit crisp. I just mixed up the topping and it looks so much wetter than yours. I doubled the recipe and rechecked the measurements twice. I did what it said. My butter was soft not melted so I thought it would not have been so wet looking. Just curious why????

    My 7-year-old daughter looked over my shoulder at the picture of waffles with blueberry syrup and said, “Instead of muffins for breakfast tomorrow, could we have THAT?!” So I guess muffin Monday is now waffle Monday ;)

    making this for our “quick” lunch! I had already made 6 batches of waffles a few weeks ago for the freezer. I came home today right at lunchtime…needing something quick to serve my hungry crew. I remembered seeing the blueberry syrup on your site and thought, ” aha! waffles for lunch today!” the syrup is cooking on the stovetop now. You inspire me, God is doing wonderful things through you!! When I tell people about you and your website , I always call you my friend :) Even though we have never met, you are my friend. Thanks for helping out in so many ways. Enjoy your homeschooling year, and we will too! My daughter is doing her 1st yr. of high school :)
