Lemon Butter Sauce for Cake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Aroostook

This is a rich and bright sauce that is excellent with any heavy unfrosted cake. A classic from the Farm Journal magazine

Top Review by Faux Chef Lael

This needed quite a bit more lemon juice to make it tart & tangy like Grandma used to make. But doubling the lemon was just the trick and everything else was perfect! I'll use it again. Thanks!
