Bourbon Sauce


Use this sauce on bread pudding, pound cake, or other desserts.


  • 1 cup whipping cream or heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the whipping cream and vanilla, bring just to a simmer. Remove from heat.

Beat together the egg yolks and sugar. Quickly stir 1/2 cup of the hot cream into the egg yolks, stirring constantly. Pour back into the hot cream in the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes, until it just begins to simmer, then stir and cook 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat and stir in the bourbon. Strain and serve warm.
