Raisin Cinnamon Sauce for Pancakes

Raisin Cinnamon Sauce for Pancakes poured over pancakes.

Plump raisins swim in a spicy brown sugar sauce ready to pour over a stack of homemade pancakes.


I like homemade sauces and syrups for pancakes, especially if there is no real maple syrup in the house.  That stuff is expensive.  This is a delicious brown sugar sauce to which I've added a few raisins and a little cinnamon for a mild spicy topping for pancakes (and perhaps even for ice cream).

The recipe takes only minutes to make and will store well in the refrigerator for several weeks.  Heat before using.

Printable recipe at end of post.

Raisin Cinnamon Sauce
½ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 cup water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter
3 or 4 tablespoons raisins

In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt.  Pour in the water and bring to a boil stirring constantly until mixture has thickened.  Continue to boil 1 minute.  Turn off heat and stir in the lemon juice, butter and raisins.  Serve warm over pancakes.

Makes about 1½ cups sauce.

In a small saucepan combine the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and water.

 Stir constantly until mixture boils and thickens.

Continue to boil 1 minute.

 
Remove from heat and stir in the raisins, lemon juice and butter.

The butter gives the sauce a rich butterscotch flavour.

The sauce is ready to serve.
