Plus Cooking time: 5 minutes
Makes 2 cups (500 mL)



1/4 cup
3 tbsp
all-purpose flour
2/3 cup
1 cup
cold milk, or cream
1/4 cup
brandy, or rum
1/4 tsp


  • Melt butter in a small saucepan set over medium heat. In a medium-size bowl, stir flour with sugar. Then whisk into melted butter until mixture is moistened. Stir in milk or cream until smooth. Cook, whisking frequently, until thickened and smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in brandy and vanilla. Remove from heat

This rich sauce enhances coffee cake, but try it drizzled over gingerbread, spice cake or vanilla ice cream.
