  1. Very simple and tasty recipe! I, too, used about half of the flour/sugar mixture, and it made a great topping for the blueberry waffles I made for my dad on father's day. Thanks!
  2. Easy to whip up while the rest of breakfast items are cooking.<br/>I halved the sugar.<br/>added more water.
  3. I prefer food items which are not extremely sweet. Following the suggestions from the other reviews, I also, cut the sugar and flour in 1/2. It is excellent and easy. I am going to try to add a dollop to my smoothie in the morning...I am sure it will be excellent.
  4. A wonderful sauce that really MADE our waffles. I did add about 1/3 cup of hot water to the finished sauce, which made it velvety smooth. Thanks Bert for posting! UPDATE: I add the sugar/flour to the cold water first so I don't get white lumps. Also, I decrease the sugar/flour by about half. Roxygirl
  5. I needed some berries to go with a pound cake, and I adapted this recipe. I ended up using frozen mixed berries, because that's all I had on hand, but the substitution worked perfectly. This makes a nice, thick sauce. Thanks for sharing.


I love to cook and so I am thrilled that I found recipezaar. I work as an educational assistant in a food school so I am around food all day long. I have four children, three of which have already flown the coop so to speak but I still have my 'baby' at home. (He's 21). I am lucky in that I have my summers off so I spend a lot of time trying new recipes and catching up on my reading. I also play soccer in a ladies league to stay in shape.
