I serve this sauce, along with my Rum Sauce for Rum Sauce (which is VERY rich) over my Christmas Pudding. Its also good over other puddings & fruit.

OH MY GOSH CountryLady... this sauce is heavenly!!! Wow.. I put this on top of some fresh raspberries tonight and I think I ate half the pot of sauce ROFL!! I'm going to gain 10lbs over night hahaha... Thanks so much for this recipe.. I have a couple ideas for it ;-) Once I try them I'll letcha know how they work out. Thanks so much though.. this was just spectacular. By the way, I had to add just a ltitle bit more cornstarch as it wasnt quite thickening enough.. it was still pretty liquid-y. Added just a tad more and it developed into a nice creamy thick sauce :-) THANKS AGAIN!! Definitely 10 Stars!
