Pour this season’s best fruit sauces all over your pancakes, waffles, ice cream, cakes, and more. Because summer’s fleeting and your mouth deserve this much deliciousness. Some recipes have a bit of booze in the mix for grown-up versions; for those that don’t, I’ve suggested flavors that play well with the fruit. You can make them with or without, at your discretion. Cheers!
Take this gorgeous sauce one step further and add a touch of Amaretto to give it a sweet almond flavor. (Hat-tip to KELLYALBRECHT for the suggestion.) You can use it to instantly dress up any dessert, like this fruit-filled sponge cake for example, but this would be seriously good over…everything in sight!
2. Peach Sauce
Elevate your weekend waffles to brunch status with this luscious peach sauce, or serve it warm over Angel Food Cake III like Sugarplum did. Want an adult version? Add a little bourbon to the mix, because you are the boss of your sauce.
Lots of reviewers say the secret to this sauce is to let it sit for a day to let the flavors develop all the way. Can your French toast wait that long? Apparently it’s totally worth it. You could throw a few drops of Grand Marnier in there to booze it up a bit, if you like.
Try to guess the surprise ingredient in this sauce. Okay, I’ll tell you: It’s blackberry schnapps. But Emily used Chambord instead, and she loved it over cheesecake. You’ll love what it does to vanilla ice cream, too.
