Blueberry Vs Raspberry Compote

Although in Singapore we do not have our own seasonal fruits like berries, stone fruits and etc. But we can easily get fresh seasonal fruits from the supermarkets and every year during summer which is the best time to buy "cheap" berries such as "Blueberry" and "Cherries" that are imported from overseas. So during this season, grab more "berries" and freeze it for later use in your bakes or dishes.


"Compote" is sweet dessert or topping which make from cooking fresh/dried fruits together with sugar and other flavorings. Here when berries are in season, I would often make some Blueberry or Raspberry compote to go with either homemade yoghurt(recipe), pancakes(recipe), crepes or cheesecake for breakfast or tea time.

(Make: About 1 Cup | Preparation: 2 minutes | Cooking: 3 - 5 minutes)

1 1/2 Cups Blueberries
2 Tablespoons of Caster Sugar
Zest Of 1 Lemon
Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1. Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium low heat until the sugar melt and some berries have burst. (Do not overcook the berries else the compote will end up to be with too much juice)

2. Remove from heat and serve warm with pancakes or crepes. Alternatively you can stored cool compote in sealed container in the fridge for up to a week.

A Short Clip On Making Blueberry Compote:

For us we love to have blueberry compote with our homemade yoghurt which brings up the flavour of both the compote and yoghurt.


If "blue" is not your preference, perhaps some Raspberry Compote will be great to use as topping for the Lemon Cheesecake (recipe) together with some extra fresh berries.

(Make: About 1 Cup | Preparation: 2 minutes | Cooking: 3 - 5 minutes

1 1/2 Cups Raspberry
2 Tablespoons of Caster Sugar
Zest Of 1 Lemon
Juice of 1/2 Lemon

1. Refer to the steps on making Blueberry Compote above.

Till then, have some fun making your very own "fruit compote" which the seasonal fresh fruits which are available in the supermarkets.


  1. That's similar to my breakfast. :-) (For my diet, ugh!) I have been eating yogurt with blueberry compote. No, it's not really enough for me, at least this makes me happy... :-) I love your compote recipe!

    1. hmmm... hope your diet program will be successful

  2. my friend ever said to me that eating yogurt with blueberry is like as healthy food for people with high blood pressure...is it right...?
