EXCELLENT sauce, but use half n' half for richer flavor. Superb with any kind of bread pudding or vanilla ice cream. And definitely use LIGHT rum. I used Meyer's Dark Rum, but the color was very unappealing. Morgan's Spice Rum was the best. Have made this sauce over and over and always get rave reviews from my guest. Read More

Why would someone want a RUM sauce recipe and not use rum? This is a very good recipe but I don't use the milk and lit the rum to burn off the alcohol...wonderful sight. Read More

A keeper for sure! I added a dash of cinnimon and a half of a chopped apple to the sauce as it boiled. I also soaked about 1/4 cup of raisins in the rum to add in at the end. I served this over vanilla and butter pecan ice cream for a group of friends and they all gave it a thumbs up! Read More
