Baking Challenge - May '10

So May's dessert wasn't baked, it was an ice cream float. The recipe was for three different flavored syrups - blueberry, strawberry and mint. I chose to make the blue berry because it was the easiest :)

Start out by placing 9 oz. (2 containers) of blueberries and 1/4 cup sugar into a saucepan. That is all the ingredients!!

Cook them over medium for 10-12 minutes. Here they are halfway through...

And here they are done!

Pour the berries into a strainer, but don't push down on the berries! I gently moved them around to try to get most of the liquid to go through.

Discard the solids - there were a lot!

I don't like floats, so I had a sundae instead.  I used vanilla frozen yogurt.  The recipe said to let the syrup cool in the fridge, but I wanted it warm on my sundae.

Mmm, it was so good!!  I'm gonna have to try the other flavors too.  The next morning I used the leftover syrup in my yogurt and that was really good too!




  1. Yum! I am going to have to try this one. Matthew would love it the next morning on his pancakes or waffles. Thanks for sharing!

  2. That sounds delicious! It would also be yummy drizzled over pound cake or angel food cake. Easy dessert for a par-tay. Have a fab weekend!

  3. Girl, that looks so yummy! I love any type of fruit with my vanilla ice cream! Hmmm... I might have to head to Dairy Queen this afternoon ;-)

  4. mmmmm you have me thinking about this and pancakes right now! looks delicious! thank you so much for linking it to my blog today. Have a great night!
