    Absolutely fabulous thanks  -  29 Dec 2016


    EXCELLENT sauce, but use half n' half for richer flavor. Superb with any kind of bread pudding or vanilla ice cream. And definitely use LIGHT rum. I used Meyer's Dark Rum, but the color was very unappealing. Morgan's Spice Rum was the best. Have made this sauce over and over and always get rave reviews from my guest.  -  09 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is a great recipe. I substituted a tablespoon of vanilla for the rum and came up with an excellent sauce for my bread pudding.  -  07 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
