A nice, simple sauce. Good on poundcake, just as she said! :) Easy to make.

Simple and delicious - this has the perfect sweet/tangy balance that you want in a lemon sauce and is yummy on just about anything! Thanks very much for posting.

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.

Excellent - served it over Gingerbread with Lemon Sauce. I chose this sauce because it had the most lemon juice compared to the amount of sugar and I wanted a very lemony tart sauce. I actually added 1 t more cornstarch because I always have trouble with cornstarch not thickening. Thanks for posting!

A great sauce and very easy to make. I made this to top off Greek Lemon Cake. It made a good cake fantastic.

I just finished making this sauce & it is very good. I read the reviews before making it & the second review thought the cornstarch was too much in the recipe. Well I tried it with the lesser amount & had to add more. I will go directly by the recipe next time. This is a wonderful light sauce. Thanks for sharing.

I think there's too much cornstarch in here, the sauce thickened up so fast and was not pourable at all, had more of a spreadable texture to it. I would cut the constarch down to 2 1/2 teaspoons, and just keep it over a low flame constantly stirring until it got the right consistency. It's basically a good sauce, just needs to be more "saucy".
