The Best Blueberry Topping Recipe

Blueberry Topping for Waffles, Pancakes, or Ice Cream

  • Author: Melissa Griffiths - Bless this Mess

  • Yield: about 2 cups 1x


My mom's blueberry topping for waffles, pancakes, or ice cream (or anything else your heart desires!) is so fun, fresh, and sweet, making it the perfect addition to so many breakfast and dessert favorites!


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup cold water


  1. In a small saucepan over medium to medium-high heat, add the blueberries, sugar, corn starch, and cold water. Stir to combine. Let the mixture come to a boil and thicken. This should take about 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. If you would like the mixture a little thicker, keep cooking. If you would like it a little thinner, add a little more water. Feel free to adjust the sugar to taste, depending on how sweet your berries were.
  3. Serve over waffles or pancakes with fresh whipped cream or over ice cream.


  • I LOVE this recipe. My mom has been making a version of this for waffles since I was a kid, and I make it very often, too. It's a fun change from syrup.
  • Just about any fresh or frozen berry will work for this recipe -- just adjust sugar and water as needed. I love using the mixed frozen berries from Costco for this recipe all year long. My mom often made it with frozen strawberries she stuck in the freezer from our garden.
