Pancakes with Tesco fruit sauces – review

March 6, 2014Sew White


I love pancakes and this year I was happy to find sauces in Tesco that I knew would be lovely on pancakes.

Tesco had some beautiful fruity sauces and I thought I would see how they worked.

The first one I tried was the raspberry sauce  – it was lovely. It was like mushy raspberries. It tasted fresh and although it wasn’t it didn’t taste messed with. Yum!

I half expected the sauce to be very runny and it was surprisingly thick.

On the pancakes it looked lovely and it added an amazing flavour to the pancakes. I was told that it looked a bit like blood but such silliness means no sauce for you!

I didn’t need much either as it went further than I thought it would. I covered a whole pancake with only 1 tablespoon of it. Very good indeed. This would work as a lovely layer in a Victoria Sponge.

The other sauces I tried from the new Tesco range were the Forest Fruit Coulis and Passion Fruit Coulis. These were both amazing. The passion fruit one was my favourite as it was a brilliant intense passion fruit taste. I would recommend sieving the passion fruit sauce. The sauce was cooked and reduced and the pips were a little brittle. They were alright but it was far more enjoyable with the pips out.

These sauces would also work incredibly well as icing/decoration on cakes. They were thick and very tasty. I plan to use the passion fruit one on a vanilla sponge. I think it would taste amazing!

The bottles were £1.50 each on offer from just below £2. A very yummy product and one I would certainly recommend. The amount you get is certainly a good amount for a large bottle and at a good price.
