I make this sauce (its VERY rich) & Custard Sauce (Custard Sauce) every year and pour a little of each over a serving of my Christmas Pudding. If there's any left, its great over vanilla or rum & raisin ice cream.


  1. Combine all ingredients, except rum& flavouring in a heavy pot.
  2. Bring to a boil to melt butter& combine well; remove from heat.
  3. Stir in rum& flavouring; refrigerate in a covered container.

Perfect rum sauce for what ever you want to serve it with.Even better since it is simple easy recipe using ingredients on hand. I served it with the foodland ontario recipe for apple rum and raisin bread pudding. Yum-O!

This is the rum sauce I've been looking for! Served it over fried bananas and it was delectable! I didn't have any rum flavouring, but the recipe was perfect without it. I might omit the water next time for a thicker consistency. Oh, and there will be a next time! Thanks CountryLady!
