“This is a recipe I had at a German friends' house. As the title suggests, it's a sauce poured over dense white cake, like a pound cake or stale old cake, to give it a second life.” - by MISSCANADA
Original recipe yields 1 cup
- Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Slowly stir the brown sugar into the butter, allowing it to melt completely. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar caramelizes and gives off a burnt smell, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour the hot water into the saucepan; mix until combined. You will have a sauce that is very liquid. Pour over pieces of cake and serve immediately. Best for stale white cake.

"I used the proportions of another recipe and this came out pretty good. 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup hot water. It was not as runny and thickened up a little more as it cooled...." See more"
"This is really good. I adjusted the water a little so it was a bit thicker (used maybe 1/2 cup) and served it over strawberry shortcake in place of whipped cream. Very good!..." See more"

"This has a lovely taste, but my only complaint it was extremely thin - like water. It doesn't really have the texture of a "sauce". I ended up adding 3 tablespoons of flour to thicken it up and it cam..." See moree out perfect. I really enjoyed it! It tasted just like toffee sauce, very smooth and delicious! and not the least bit grainy."
