Quick and Easy Strawberry Sauce for Pancakes and Waffles
This Strawberry Sauce for Pancakes and Waffles is super delicious, super quick, and super easy to make.
Servings 2 to 4 servings
- 2 cups (12oz) hulled and chopped fresh strawberries
- 1/3 cup (66g) granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice fresh or bottled is fine
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch whisked together with 2 tablespoons water*
In a medium saucepan, combine chopped strawberries, sugar, water, lemon juice, and cornstarch/water slurry. Stir and bring to a simmer. Keep at a simmer (adjusting temperature as necessary), stirring often until thick and syrupy, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove from heat, pour over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream, and enjoy!
*Whisking the cornstarch and water together will prevent cornstarch lumps from forming in your sauce. Don't skip this step!
To halve or double the recipe, simply subtract (for halving) or add (for doubling) a minute or two the simmering time.
