Blueberry Sauce For Pancake Recipe Overview

So simple and so good, berries can put a classic pancake or crepe dish over the top. Especially when you’re concerned with putting healthy ingredients into your body, or if you are on a weight loss diet and are opting for keto pancakes as opposed to the traditional regular pancake we all grew up with. No matter how good a pancake is or claims to be, for me, it has never been able to match the expectations of a rich, fluffy griddle cake my grandmother used to make for me when I was a child. (I recently discovered rice flour pancakes with gluten free benefits – and I have to admit that it’s a damn fine pancake. Let’s just call it a grown-ups pancake.)

So, the discovery and recent exploration into berries has been a culinary and soul-saving revelation for me. The simple recipe to follow is a very basic start that a home cook can vary to their whim, utilizing seasonal produce, berries of choice, experimenting with pairings, and so on.

Not only a breakfast companion, try pairing berries with pork, chicken, cheeses, oatmeal. Endless possibilities exist when using this blueberry sauce recipe to finish a meal.
