Adapted from southernfood.com, this brown sugar sauce is great on bread pudding, fruit, pound cake, coffee cakes and ice cream. We eat at a Cajun restaurant that serves the most delicious sauce over it’s bread pudding. The cook gave me all the ingredients. Absolutely the best! For a treat, add 1/4 cup rum, whiskey or brandy to the sauce.
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tbsp corn syrup Karo
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream or evaporated milk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine in a saucepan, the brown sugar, corn syrup, butter and cream. Bring to boil over medium heat stirring constantly.
Reduce to medium low and let the mixture boil for 5 minutes. Add the vanilla, stir into the mixture and remove from heat.
Sauce will thicken as it cools. For a taste variety, add 1/4 cup rum, whiskey or brandy to the sauce.
Serve over your favorite dessert.
