    Andrea's Note:

    I love this sauce on gingerbread or fresh fruit, especially strawberries. It is also good on pound cake and ice cream.

      Used this sauce on Happy Cake ( Pound Cake ) & it was exactly what I was looking for. Perfectly tart with fresh squeezed lemon juice, it complimented the pound cake nicely. I made just as written without any trouble thickening. Thank you for posting, Andrea. I'll be coming back to this recipe again.
