Perfect over recipe for Bread Pudding II submitted by Ellen Warfield! I took the advice of another review and changed it to two TBSP cornstarch to 1 cup water. Served warm. It was the perfect consistency!
I used this recipe for the topping of an 8x8 pan of bread pudding. I used only 1 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of corstarch to amke it thicker. In the end it came out great!
Good start, but needs work. Definitely reduce the water to 1 cup and add another tablespoon cornstarch. Very good with these changes!
I'm glad I read the review before attempting this recipe. I did like the others and used 1 cup of water and 2 tbsp. of cornstarch. It came out pretty good. I used it over Bread Pudding II from this site. I might try adding a little whiskey to this to see what happens to the flavor next time.......
Keep the ingredients the same , except add an additional 1 tbsp cornstarch.
I also got a very watery syrup that would not thicken up, but I think the problem is that the submitter put in her recipe to use white sugar meaning confectioner sugar not regular granulated sugar, though when a normal recipe calls for white sugar it is usually means regular sugar so thats what I used. I figured I would try it again with the powdered sugar and see if that comes out better.
I made the changes suggested by other reviewers: used half the water, twice the cornstarch, confectioner's sugar. I also added half a cup of evaporated milk when I added the butter and vanilla. Not only very good on the bread pudding I made it for, but good cold the next day with store-bought molasses cookies.
i was looking for a quick and easy vanilla sauce to go with a jewish apple cake i made, and this was quick, easy, and delicious! its a little more carmel than vanilla, but carmel and apple go well together. i did reduce the water to 1 cup and increase the cornstarch to 2 tablespoons and it turned out perfectly. this would also be fabulous with bread pudding.
