Rum Sauce

Marlys got this recipe in 1970 from Glenna Morris- I think she was a Bridge Playing friend. It is an excellent sauce for desserts, like dense cakes and ice cream and is very simple.

Rum Sauce

(Glenna Morris, 1970)

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon rum flavoring or rum to taste (real rum gets stronger as it sits).

Combine and boil one or two minutes the sugars, butter and cream. Add rum.


I used real rum when I made my sample. This sauce is nice in that it is not a cornstarch based sauce, but instead is based on the butter and heavy cream.
