Easy Microwave Mixed Berry Syrup

Easy Homemade Mixed Berry Syrup

When you go out to breakfast, most restaurants will give you an option of having fresh fruit and whipped cream on top of your pancakes or waffles. This is easy to do at home, of course, but it means that you need to plan ahead and make sure that you have some waffle-friendly fruit on hand before you get up in the morning. Sliced watermelon (what I have in the fridge right now) just doesn’t really cut it. Fortunately, I always have some frozen fruit around and making a mixed berry syrup is very easy and just as delicious.

I used some frozen blueberries and strawberry jam to make this syrup. Just combine some frozen berries, jam and a bit of sugar in a large, microwave-safe bowl and cook for about 1-2 minutes on high. The berries and jam will melt together into a lovely, thick syrup that still has big berries in it. Plus, there are no pans to wash up, so it’s a very low-maintenance trick to pull on a Sunday morning while still making breakfast a bit more special than usual.

Raspberry jam, or any other flavor of jam you like, will work just as well. Other frozen berries, such as blackberries or raspberries, will also work in place of the blueberries. Blueberries are my frozen fruit staple, so I always have them on hand.

Easy Homemade Mixed Berry Syrup
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
2 tbsp strawberry jam
1 tbsp sugar

Combine all ingredients in a medium sized microwave-safe bowl. Cook on high for 1 minute, stir and cook for an additional 60-90 seconds, until syrup is bubbling and slightly thickened. Serve hot, with pancakes or waffles.

Serves 2-3. Can be doubled as needed.
