“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.”

Directions

  1. 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.

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!

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 came out perfect. I really enjoyed it! It tasted just like toffee sauce, very smooth and delicious! and not the least bit grainy.
