Orange Cream Sauce

"The original of this make-over recipe was found on ZAAR, but I wanted a more intense orange flavor and a thinner sauce."

  1. This is really good sauce. I made this to go with Recipe #61949. The flavor is incredible, like an orange creamsicle. I am going to serve the rest with some french toast tomorrow. Made and Reviewed for PRMR Tag. Thanks :)
  2. Oh my! Ten stars for sure. Delicious served over buttered and grilled slices of pound cake, scoop of ice cream and garnished with a dollop of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry on top. Would also be good served over a piece of sponge cake or fruit cake. Maybe add some drained mandarin oranges to the sauce for the last few minutes. This sauce would also be good for individual trifles in wide-mouth wine glasses with a little cake, fruit, this delicious orange sauce and whipped cream on top. Yummy! Update: Made it again and served it over French Toast with sliced fresh oranges and strawberries, and a sprinkle of icing sugar on top.
  3. I'm with the other reviewer... I'm having a hard time not wanting to drink this! We used it over sherbert. YUM!
  4. Very creamy with a nice orange flavor. I used the sauce on cinnamon french toast with wonderful results. I like adding milk or cream to my hot tea...I think I am going to try it with this sauce. Made for August, 2008 Bevy Tag.
  5. I had to stop myself from pouring this into a glass and drinking it. Creamy and orangey. This would be wonderful poured over pancakes, pound cake, or vanilla ice cream. I loved served over frozen yogurt. Great Sauce Syd!
