This is that tangy, sweet but still sour, dessert sauce that goes really well with applesauce bundt cake (hint, hint). Or over gingerbread. Or over those traditional baked pudding thingies that I can never get to come out right.
It's easy and fast so go try some today. This version is based on an old Betty Crocker recipe.
1/3 c. sugar
2 T. cornstarch
3/4 c. warm water
4 T. lemon juice
1 t. grated lemon peel (optional)
2 T. butter
Mix sugar and cornstarch. Stir in water and lemon juice. Whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat until it thickens and boils. Boil and stir for one minute. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon peel and butter. Stir until smooth.
Serve over your favorite fruit dessert or applesauce cake or bread pudding or whatever you like lemon sauce drizzled over.
