Merry Berry Glaze

While I was just finishing up my post on my coconut orange glaze, I thought of my mixed berry glaze recipe I also love. This is another easy recipe that goes well with many different cakes and other sweets! This berry glaze is perfect for the holidays too. Simple doughnuts and lemon cakes pair very nicely with this. It is sweet but since it is also a berry glaze, it goes well with cinnamon and even pumpkin. Any ways, no more chatter, you may chose to use it however you wish!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp suagr
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

Over the stove top, cook the frozen berries and the sugar together. Add a couple of teaspoons water as well. Cook over medium heat until the berries are cooked down to a sauce (this takes about 15 minutes). Strain the berries into a bowl to get rid of any excess seeds. Add the powdered sugar and the vanilla. Mix well and viola!
