This homemade cherry sauce is easy to make and only has a few, simple ingredients. It’s vegan friendly, naturally sweetened, and gluten free! It’s a delicious topping for pancakes, oatmeal, ice cream, cheesecake, cakes, and more!
Who needs canned cherry pie filling, when you can make your own cherry sauce at home! It couldn’t be more simple either. Just pitted cherries, sweetener, cornstarch, and water. You can do it with just about any fruit too—cherries, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.
And what do you do with a homemade fruit sauce, you ask? The possibilities are endless! I recently used this in my Black Forest Cake, but this would be delicious on a stack of pancakes, oatmeal, ice cream, cheesecake, or whatever you typically top with fruit.
This sauce will keep for up to a week in the fridge, if it lasts that long! It’s definitely a delicious addition to many different dishes and worth a try, especially if you have an abundance of cherries…not a bad problem if you ask me! 😉
