This 10 Minute Mixed Berry Compote is a quick and easy summer topping for some of your favorite treats! Use fresh berries to cook up this sauce that is bursting with flavor!
I’ve been all about the berries this summer! Blackberries are probably my favorite, but raspberries are a close second. Strawberries are great too and so much more accessible, but when blackberries and raspberries are in season they are totally worth the splurge!
The berries almost didn’t make it into this recipe, they all almost ended up in my belly…. but I practiced some self control to bring you this amazing 10 Minute Mixed Berry Compote!
To make the compote you will cook down the berries with maple syrup and a little lemon juice and then thicken it with a little bit of corn starch. In only 10 minutes you will have a delicious and versatile berry sauce!
Here are some ideas for what to do with it!
1. Step up your pancake (or waffle) game by adding a generous portion to your stack!
2. If there is something that says summer more than berries, it’s ice cream and they make a winning combination! Hold the hot fudge and top your sundae with warm berry compote 🙂
3. No time for pancakes? Layer granola, yogurt and mixed berry compote for an easy breakfast parfait!Print
