My post today is a simple yet yummy sauce made with strawberries. This fruit based sauce works as topping for pancakes/crepes, waffles, ice creams, cakes and much more. It is a beginner recipe where you can dump everything together into a pot and stir intermittently until the sauce of desired consistency is reached. My daughter eats this sauce with pancakes where I enjoy it as it is sometimes.
1.5 cup hulled and sliced strawberries
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar (or adjust to taste)
2 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. vanilla essence (optional)
(Corn starch and vanilla can be replaced with vanilla flavored custard powder.)
* Add berries, sugar and water to a pot and bring to boil on medium flame. Lower the heat and continue to cook until the berries are soft.
* Mix corn starch with a tbsp. of water and whisk it to a thick liquid. Add this to the pot, stirring continuously until it is blended well into the berry mixture. Cook for few minutes more until it becomes thick and syrupy. Mash it with the back of a spoon or puree it if a chunky sauce is not preferred.
