Tasty Rum Sauce

Jonni Ready, one of the best bakers I've known, made this rum sauce. She made a rum roll that she used to bring to the flower shop I worked at. The sauce is wonderful, even on angel food cake.

She used to make all kinds of treats for the flower shop. She made the best angel food cakes, and an avocado pie topped with real whipped cream, that was so good. She made us huge molasses cookies like the ones that the "tall ships" carried on their long voyages; and the best peanut butter cookie, oh yum.


  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 Tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 Tbsp. Rum (You can use a good rum extract if you'd like.)


Put milk, water, sugar and salt in pan and bring to a light boil. Add combined starch, egg yolk and water. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add rum and stir in.

While not a very good baker (something I don't do often!), I am tempted to try this recipe. It sure sounds wonderful! I'll try to find a recipe for a rum roll, or maybe I'll try the sauce on pound cake. Either way, thank you very much for sharing it as well as the tribute to your friend. What a blessing that you have such fond memories of her.
