Tasty Cape Velvet Liqueur

"According to my brother, who is the connoisseur of CVC, this is THE recipe to use! I find many different uses for this liqueur, we serve it on the rocks or over icecream and fruit salad and when I make banana cream pie, I dip the cookies into CVC before layering them... makes a really good pie then! The nice thing about this cream liqueur is that it is ready to use immediately."

  1. There is no mention of condensed milk in the list of ingredients but it is mentioned in the directions. Also, (a minor point) refrigerate is spelled without a 'd'.
  2. Ok reviewers....Is it really fair to rate a recipe if you haven't tried it Allie Bell?? And spell check?? Get a life chef 1237904! Fabulous recipe, just what the doctor ordered!
  3. I would like to try this recipe, but I don't know how much brandy to use, as an amount isn't specified. Could someone complete the ingredients list for this recipe?


I was born and raised in South Africa but now live in Delaware USA. Since I can remember I have been cooking! My first real cooking experience was when I was 7. I came home from school one afternoon and felt like French toast. My elder brother was home with his friends and did not want to make it for me, so I got a pan out, put it on the stove, turned the stove on to high. After that I could not remember what to do, but I knew that French toast involved bread so I put the bread in the hot pan without grease and poured milk over it! Oy vey... My brother's friend asked me what I was trying to make and I told him. He laughed and told me I was making it wrong but he also taught me how to make French toast the right way. I came home every day after that and made French toast. I felt so confident with the little bit of knowledge I had acquired that I soon started experimenting with other things. Nothing was going to stop me! The first full meal I ever made for my family was boiled rice and oven roasted chicken pieces with a steamed vegetable medley. I was 8 years old and my mom was in hospital. My dad was struggling to hold down an intensely busy job, keep the family going and be with my mom, so I thought I would help him. I don't think he believed that I had done it on my own. I remember telling him that I read in a cookery book how to make a roast chicken but I did not know what "a" rosemary was so I just put the chicken in the dish without it. Decades later with a myriad tried and tested recipes behind me - flops and failures included - I know my way around any food item and kitchen utensil, much to my family's delight!
