Warm Lemon Sauce

This is a really quick and easy lemon sauce which is perfect for desert. I needed this one night when I had some old fruit cake that needed using up, but I hated to throw out. And we only had 1/2 bottle of milk in the fridge - truly and honestly we need to invest in a cow, the way my children guzzle down the milk! So custard was out of the question - and a lovely warm lemon sauce was the next best option, and this is perfectly delicious.


 1/2 cup sugar
1 TBSP cornflour
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup boiling water
1 TBSP grated lemon peel
2 TBSP Lemon juice
1 Tablespoon butter


In a pot, combine sugar, cornflour and salt. Add boiling water. Cook until mixture is thick and clear. Add in lemon peel, lemon juice and finally butter.

Serve over steamed pudding or icecream.
