Rum Sauce (For Bread Pudding, Cake, Etc.)
- Ready In:
- Combine the corn starch and water in a small bowl and set aside.
- In medium sauce pan whisk together the half-and-half, sugar, rum, and salt. Turn the heat on medium and stir almost continuously, I keep the whisk moving, giving 5 second breaks from time to time.
- When the sauce just begins to boil, give the corn starch/water mixture a quick stir and quickly add it to the sauce. Remember to keep stirring!
- The sauce should thicken within a few seconds.
- Once it reaches the consistency of gravy, remove from heat and add the vanilla and butter, whisk quickly.
- Pour the hot sauce over your favorite bread pudding, ice cream, pound cake, etc.
- Pour over day old donuts, bake at 375° for 20 minutes for a quick brunch. Serve with coffee.
- Pour over unbaked, canned biscuits, bake at 375° for 35 minutes for bread pudding. Serve this bread warm, alone or with vanilla ice cream.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I come from a very large family which attributed to my mother spending a great deal of her time in the kitchen cooking, cleaning, and preparing. I was fascinated at how she prepared wonderful dishes (especially desserts) without using a cookbook. We grew many of our own fruits and vegetables and my summers were spent washing jars and preparing fruit and vegetables for canning. I dreaded the mountains of green beans, tomatoes, peaches, etc., etc. that had to be picked, washed, peeled, snapped.... More than anything, I hated spending my summer washing jars! But now, I wouldn't trade that kind of upbringing for anything. I'm glad I learned how to do all those things because it's becoming a lost art. It really was a simpler time then and I'm a much better person for knowing how to do all those 'old fashioned' things. In my early years of learning to cook, I watched Julia Child on PBS every chance I got. I was so thrilled when I was about 11, my mother let me prepare Julia's Pastry Tarts. If I remember correctly they didn't turn out so well but it didn't matter. Oddly, today, I enjoy reading cookbooks and recipes even more than actually cooking. <img src="http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/picCdyPjI-1.jpg">
