Fresh Strawberry Sauce

This is an all-time favourite sauce to serve with European-Style Crepes. It is delicious, super-quick to make and looks spectacular if you want to impress guests. You can also serve this sauce on scoops of soy ice-cream.


  • 750 g fresh, ripe strawberries, hulled and thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup caster sugar


  1. Place the strawberries in a pan and sprinkle with the caster sugar. Heat on a moderate flame until the sugar begins to melt and caramelise and the strawberries begin to soften and release their juice.
  2. Add ¼ cup of water to the strawberries and continue cooking for a further few minutes until the strawberries are soft and a sauce has formed.

Makes sauce for 8 crepes
