Waffles and Pancakes are weekend brunch staples for us, and this berry compote for pancakes is always on the menu!  What better way to top your breakfast than with a warm and delicious sauce made from fresh or frozen fruit. We just found this great farm stand that opened up down the street for us, and this week they had fresh blueberries and raspberries.  I can’t resist fresh & local berries, so you know those came home with us.

It’s so easy to make, and only takes about 15 minutes, so it can cook while you make breakfast!

 Frozen Berry Recipes For the Win!

This berry compote is so versatile – you can use any fresh or frozen berries that you have on hand. Frozen produce is a great option for finding fresh and flavorful fruits in the off season. By using freezer ingredients, I can stock up when they are on sale, and use them in all kinds of great dishes. It saves me a trip to the store, and I can add amazing fruits right into the recipe. Frozen fruits are often picked at peak ripeness, so they are a much better option than canned.  Check out all my recipes that use Freezer Ingredients on The Herbeevore – great for those nights when you want dinner ready fast!

How Do I Make Compote with Berries?

  1. To a sauce pot, add the berries, agave syrup, and water.  Cook on medium high heat, stirring frequently. The berries will dissolve and become juicer in the pan. Cook for about 10 minutes total until the berries are warm and jammy.
  2. Stir in the cinnamon. If the compote is too watery, stir in the corn starch and cook for an additional minute until compote is thicker.
  3. Top compote on pancakes, waffles, crepes, oatmeal, or french toast… and enjoy!
