Whisky Sauce is a delicious accompaniment to Crepes, Waffles or ice-cream.
4 oz. unsalted butter
4 tablespoons orange juice
4 oz. icing sugar
3 tablespoons whisky
1 teaspoon cornflour mixed with 1 tablespoon orange juice
In a small saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat. When the foam subsides, add the orange juice, sugar and whisky.
With a wooden spoon, stir until the sugar has melted. Stir in the cornflour mixture and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly.
Remove the pan from the heat and pour the sauce into a warmed sauceboat. Serve at once.
