Brown Sugar Sauce
  • 1/4Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 3 TBL. All-Purpose Unbleached White Flour
  • 2/3 Cup Dark Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 TBL. Brandy
  • 1/4 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  1. Melt the Butter in a saucepan set over medium heat. In a medium-sized bowl, stir the Flour and Cinnamon with the Sugar. Whisk this mixture into the melted Butter until moistened.
  2. Stir in the Cream and whisk until smooth. Cook over low heat (slightly bubbling), whisking frequently until thickened and smooth - 5 minutes.
  3. Take it off the heat and stir in the Brandy and Vanilla.
  4. Serve over the Coffee Cake while warm, or it can be refrigerated for about 1 week. Reheat just before serving. Reheat is SLOWLY, tho, or it will break.
