freshly grated nutmeg
grated lemon zest
My mother used to make a lemon sauce for gingerbread. When I saw this recipe, I just had to try it. I am so glad I did. This is a wonderful sauce for gingerbread! Thanks for the memories!
I made as is for a lemon cake I made, just didn't like it. something was off.
I had unexpected dinner guests the other night and needed a quick dessert. I had some Apricot Brandy Pound Cake (this site) in the freezer, but no ice cream or frozen topping. I had been intrigued with this recipe because of the nutmeg content, so I finally made it. I didn't have freshly grated, but used dried. It still came out wonderful. This sauce is soooo yummy. I know it would be great over ice cream, cake, bavarian cream, or whatever. You can make it as lemony as you want by increasing or decreasing the lemon juice.Thanks Ginger!
The best and easiest I have ever made, wonderful with bread pudding.
Just like my mom use to make! I serve over bread pudding! I didn't have a lemon so I used concentrated lemon juice and omitted the rind. I'm sure it would be even more yummy with those ingredients!
This was so incredible!!! I served it with pound cake for a bridal shower, and it was definitely the hit of the party! Light, intensely lemony, not overpowering and not too rich. I did double the amount of lemon juice and peel. Fantastic!
very easy to make and delicious. I served it with warm gingerbread. a big hit.
This is the best one I have ever tasted and is a great compliment to Bread Pudding.
