A beautiful yummy sauce that goes so well over brownies, ice cream, angel food cake or pound cake! Use in between layers in a trifle. From the Folgers folks.


  1. In a medium-sized, heavy saucepan, scald together the cream and coffee.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar for 8-10 minutes with the electric mixer until mixture is very thick and lemony-colored.
  3. Gradually beat in the warm coffee mixture.
  4. Return to the pan and cook over low heat, stirring, until mixture boils and thickens.
  5. Stir the vanilla.
  6. Cool, cover, and chill until very cold. Enjoy spooned over a brownie, plain angel food cake, or pound cake for delicious desserts.
  7. Makes about 2-1/2 cups.

A truly wonderful sauce & the coffee flavor shines, but in a way kids & adults will both enjoy. It is very sweet & I will reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup next time. It was served over marbled pound cake & I want to try the other uses you suggested. It would be lovely w/bread pudding or maybe even French toast, but tomorrow nite it will top vanilla ice cream & I will post a 2nd pic. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-) ~ *Edited to Add* on 5/8 ~ *TDF* great on vanilla ice cream! *Yum* !
