Why I Love This Recipe

This is a vintage recipe that goes back before ice cream, was use on pound cakes. My Great-Great Grandmother made this for my Great Grandmother Biggs when she was a little girl, and so on down the line. I don't know for sure how far back in our family this recipe goes. But it is great on meats, ice cream & pound cakes!

2 Tablespoons Cornstarch
Dash of Salt


Melt sugar in castiron skillet over low heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in coffee gradually. Dissolve cornstarch in water, then add to skillet and cook until sauce thickens. Serve hot.
