I made a scratch pound cake for a chocolate fondue a couple days ago and had about half of it left that I wanted to do something else with. So I made up a batch of my homemade chocolate pudding and this vanilla sauce. I cut two 1/4-inch slices of pound cake, covered it with chocolate pudding and then drizzled this vanilla sauce over it. Even picky eater (DD#2) had to have some of this! (picky eater DD#3 was sick with the flu, so she wasn't eating anything!) I used whole milk for the light cream and 35% Pure Vanilla Extract for the vanilla. Thank you for sharing a really lovely recipe Barbara!!! This one strikes me as being very versatile.

I made this in the micro! Quick and easy! I`m serving it with Sunken Chocolate Souffle. Vanilla comes through nicely in this creamy sauce.
