Have you tried making a bourbon sauce at home? This has all the boozy feels for the perfect dessert, or even better morning pick me up. We start with melting butter and brown sugar in equal parts and then add some cream – regular Amul cream does fine – and a shot or two of bourbon – I’ve been known to make it three, but who’s telling? Whisk away on low heat until the sugar melts and let it cook for just a few minutes, bringing to a simmer but never to boil.
Pour into a glass container, and serve warm or cold, ideally with Cinnamon Crusted Bread Pudding, or drizzle over baked oatmeal, pancakes, waffles and my favourite, vanilla ice cream!
