Blackberry and Brandy Sauce

    25 min

    This is a really easy sauce to serve over ice cream, cheesecake or perhaps even pancakes. Serve it warm over vanilla ice cream or chill it, and serve over plain cheesecake.

    Simply delecious. In fact Divine  -  09 Aug 2010


    Yummy. My mom taught me a secret to berry and liquer/brandy sauces... Add 8 peppercorns before cooking. Strain out (mesh strainer or cheese cloth) seeds/peppercorns. This adds a great layer of flavor. Try it - you'll like it :-)  -  07 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    WOW! We enjoyed this over Blackberry ripple ice cream one evening and cheesecake the next. SunsetInAZ is right about adding peppercorns. Even if you choose not to add them, you'll enjoy the sauce much more without the seeds, so be sure to strain the sauce after cooking. Thanks for sharing.  -  09 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
