My favorite way to serve this sauce is over angel food cake with fresh berries. Everyone raves about the sauce, but the best part is how quick and easy it is to make!
- 1⁄4 cup butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 1⁄4 cups boiling water
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1⁄4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons lemon juice
- In a sauce pan, stir together the butter, sugar and flour. Pour in the boiling water and stir till disolved. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil till thickened.
- TIP: I use meyer lemons from the tree in our back yard, and often times increase the grated lemon peel or lemon juice to intensify the flavor.
