So, I got a Belgian waffle maker for Christmas this year from my boys. I’ve been under the weather so now that I’m feeling better it was time to try it out! I love, love, love Belgian waffles and I wanted something more than butter and syrup to top them with so I made this super easy strawberry sauce based on the blueberry sauce also shared in this blog. If you’ve read my blog for a while, you know we pick strawberries every year in nearby Plant City so I used what I had frozen. This is so easy to make it’s ridiculous!
Not only was this delicious on our Belgian waffles, it would be yummy over some vanilla ice cream too! Before I get to the recipe, a word about sugar: I used the least amount of sugar to begin, tasted the mixture after mashing the berries and added a bit more. Remember you can always add more but you can’t take away!
Easy Strawberry Sauce
- 2 cups frozen strawberries
- 2-4 tablespoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water
- Combine strawberries and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally and when the sugar melts, remove from heat.
- Mash strawberries with a fork, spoon, potato masher, or pastry cutter, leaving some chunks for texture. Return to heat and bring mixture to a boil.
- In a measuring cup combine the cornstarch and water until the cornstarch is dissolved. When the mixture boils, add cornstarch and stir to combine.
- Boil, stirring frequently, for an additional 2 – 4 minutes or until the mixture thickens. Serve with pancakes, waffles, or over ice cream.
