Top Review by Lorac

Excellant! Fresh strawberries in an enchanting butterscotch cream sauce flavored with orange and brandy. I made the recipe as directed with heavy cream, 1 1/2 teaspoons of orange rind, sliced strawberries and served it over vanilla ice cream. Quick, easy, and sensational, a real treasure.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Hull strawberries, and if large, slice in half.
  2. Melt butter in a medium sized pan, add brown sugar and cook until sugar is just starting to melt.
  3. Add the orange juice and rind, and cook stirring until sugar has dissolved.
  4. Stir in the cream.
  5. Add the strawberries and warm through gently.
  6. (Take care not to overheat strawberries as they can otherwise become acidic in taste.) Warm brandy separately, light, and pour over strawberries.
  7. Serve over vanilla icecream or crepes.
