Instant Pot Blueberry Sauce For Cheesecake, Pancakes, Ice Cream & More (Video)
Instant pot blueberry sauce or blueberry compote is super easy to make and it's the perfect blueberry sauce for cheesecake, pancakes, french toast, waffles, ice creams etc! This delicious blueberry sauce is also great for making blueberry cake fillings as well.
Servings 48 tablespoons
- 4 cups fresh blueberries (or frozen berries)
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
for the cornstarch mixture:
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons water
Wash the blueberries very well and add to the instant pot.
Add sugar, vanilla extract and the two tablespoons of water.
Mix everything well.
Close the instant pot with lid in sealing position, cook in high pressure for 2 minutes.
Once the cooking is done, wait for a natural pressure release of 12 minutes, then carefully do a gradual manual pressure release.
Once the pressure is all released, carefully open the lid of the instant pot and stir the contents.
Now let's make the cornstarch mixture to slightly thicken the blueberry sauce.To make the cornstarch mixture, add the cornstarch and water (about 1 to 2 tablespoons) in a bowl and mix very well to combine. Make sure there is no lumps of cornstarch formed.
Pour this prepared cornstarch mixture to the instant pot and immediately stir very well to evenly mix with the contents. Stirring very well is very important to avoid the formation of any lumps from the cornstarch mixture.
Once the cornstarch mixture is stirred well into the contents in the instant pot, press saute and simmer the contents for about 2 to 3 minutes, while you stir in between as needed.
Once simmered for two to three minutes, delicious blueberry sauce is ready! Keep in mind that the sauce thickens further as it cools down so you do not need to simmer more. The consistency of the blueberry sauce is slightly thick but we should be able to pour it easily and so no need to cook further like you do for jams.
Allow the prepared blueberry sauce to cool down, then carefully transfer to bowls for serving or transfer to jars.
It is ok to store the blueberry sauce in air tight glass jars in refrigerator for upto two weeks.
You can serve the delicious blueberry sauce with pancakes, toast, waffles, ice creams etc or you can use it make homemade blueberry ice cream, blueberry filling for cakes etc!
I even serve these delicious blueberry sauce with leftover cornbread from Thanksgiving, and the golden yellow color of cornbread and blue of the blueberries is so matching and they taste great together!
