Make this homemade strawberry topping sauce using fresh or frozen strawberries. It goes really well on top of ice-creams, pancakes, waffles, cheesecakes and quite a lot more! .

This is a standard item on our brunch table on Sundays when Akshita whips up her awesome pancakes and tops it off with whipped cream and this topping sauce.

We recently made this and Blueberry Topping Sauce to add on top of our Cheesecake In A Jar recipe. You can even make it a part of your charcuterie board! If you have few mason jars lying around, the sauce can stay good in them for up to 2 weeks

How to Make Strawberry Sauce

This strawberry sauce cooks on the stove in about 8 minutes.

  1. Mix the cornstarch and water together.
  2. Place everything, besides the cornstarch mixture, into a medium saucepan. Then mash the strawberries a bit with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. This helps the release the juices.
  3. Bring to a simmer and add the cornstarch mixture. Cook for 5 minutes while stirring constantly. The sauce will begin to thicken at this point.
  4. Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool.

This is a chunkier style strawberry sauce, providing wonderful texture to no bake cheesecake, waffles, pancakes and so much more. But the amount of strawberry chunks is up to you. For less chunks, mash up the strawberries a little more as the sauce cooks.
