Easy Blueberry Compote

Making a blueberry compote takes pancakes from here to here, if you know what I mean. Syrup is great. Peanut butter is fine. Powdered sugar is delicious. But none of it will compare to this simple compote.

Serves 2. Multiply as needed.

You’ll need:

  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbs. sugar or honey
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

1. Add all ingredients to a small saucepan over medium high heat.

2. Stirring regularly, cook until desired consistency is reached, approximately 10 minutes. Serve warm on top of whatever your heart desires.

This recipe makes a great addition to ice cream, waffles, shortcake, french toast, cheesecake, and crepes.

  1. Can I just add that when I first saw your title, I thought “I don’t know what a compote *is*. So how can it possibly be easy?” But apparently, I’ve been missing out on this actually-easy-magic all this time! Definitely trying this. Have you ever tried something like this on a bagel?

    Also, thank you for giving me permission to use frozen fruit.

    • A bagel! It would be so perfect. You might want to let it chill a little big, so it gels more before you spread it. Otherwise, it’ll be too soupy and will make a royal (delicious) mess.
