Oh wow, this is yummy and care-free easy. Served over recipe #2615, an exquisite chocolate cake that I make often. This takes it to a new height. I put the nutmeg on the table and invited everyone to sprinkle their own on top of cake and sauce. Took off as a conversation item - nutmeg, mace, etc! Doubled the recipe and added more powdered sugar to thicken. Just great, thank you!
