Homemade Blueberry Syrup For Pancakes and Waffles

Do you love to eat breakfast out at a really good pancake house? One of the best parts can be their yummy fruit syrups. Not that maple syrup isn't good - I love it! But how about making some fresh Blueberry Syrup at home the next time you make homemade pancakes for your family?
Here is a simple recipe to use. Your family will love it!


2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries

1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 cup water

In a medium saucepan, stir together all ingredients. Cook together over medium heat until sugar is dissolved, stirring gently. Turn heat down to medium low and cook for 12 to 15 minutes. Use potato masher to gently break up berries into the syrup mixture. It is fine to have some berries floating in the syrup, so don't over-mash it.
Serve over your favorite pancake or waffle recipe, or use it to liven up frozen store bought waffles. Store remainder in the fridge for a few days. Can be used warm or cold.
