Since picking some 7-ish pounds of blueberries I’ve been dreaming all kinds of fantastic ways to use those babies up. And when looking for something to pour over the leftover angel food cake I spied the wine… and thought of the blueberries. Now mind you it was like 7 pm… not the best time to shoot a recipe and I ran out of whipped cream but I don’t even care because this sauce is THAT good.

Red wine and blueberries is my newest favorite flavor combo.

2 cups blueberries

Start by adding two cups of blueberries to an oven-safe baking dish. Mine are obviously frozen… frozen not frozen… it doesn’t matter in this situation. Either way the 400° oven is going to blast them into smithereens.


Sprinkle with two tablespoons of sugar… ya know, to balance out the tartness. And sprinkle in a pinch of kosher salt.

red wine

Pour two to three tablespoons of wine and a teaspoon real vanilla extract over the berries.


Stir all of those together and pop the blueberries into your preheated 400 degree oven for like 20 minutes. Stir half way… just be super-duper careful you don’t get any of the bubbling sugary liquid on ya… OUCH!

hot out the oven!

I then smashed up those blueberries a bit with my spoon. You totally don’t have to do this… but I did.


Either let it cool completely or drizzle the sauce on still warm.

Either way… this sauce is the business.

I promise you’re going to love how easy and delicious this blueberry sauce is. It’s not overly wine-y I promise… so darn good! Now I’m off to make a stack of pancakes so I can pour the remaining sauce over those babies.
