Celebrate the season by getting together with family and friends for a springtime brunch filled with a variety of mouthwatering dishes.
An array of foods from sweet to savory is the ideal combination for a successful brunch, and homemade strawberry sauce complements both impeccably. Whether it’s to top off pancakes, waffles, angel food cake, or pound cake, this luscious sauce is bursting with juicy goodness.
One of the best things about setting up a brunch is using serveware in fun and creative ways. For example, a pretty glass creamer such as this one from Anchor Hocking doubles as the perfect pitcher to hold the strawberry sauce.
Whether it’s for Mother’s Day or any occasion, this recipe may easily be doubled and is great for making ahead. Simply prepare sauce, cool completely, then cover and store in the fridge up to three days in advance. Reheat in the microwave before serving.
One thing is certain: Ruby-red strawberry sauce is a delightful addition to any warm-weather gathering. Enjoy!
