This sauce was created by Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa to those who don't know) to go with her Barefoot Contessa's Lemon Yogurt Cake that I posted here. No butter in this cake, but still moist and delicious! The blueberry sauce is pretty darn good, too.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Combine the blueberries and vanilla sugar in a large heavy saucepan. If you don't have vanilla sugar, just use a cup of sugar and a 1/4 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
  2. Add 1 cup water and the lemon juice and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the mixture begins to thicken.
  4. Remove from the heat and strain through a fine sieve.
  5. Cool to room temperature, cover and refrigerate.

This sauce has excellent flavor. I used it as a topping with Recipe #174102 and for topping frozen Nutrigrain Eggos, too. My sauce didn't thicken much, but that could be because I didn't put it through a sieve. I left the berries whole to float in the sweet syrup and top my breakfasts. Yum!
