Fantastic filling. It gets a little cumbersome stirring it, but it's worth it in the end. I omitted the cherries and raisins and used it with a boxed lemon cake. It was outstanding!

Wonderful, I made this for the Holidays and then sent the recipe to some others.

It was alright, but not great. I also tried replacing the burbon with rum extract. DON'T DO THAT! It was AWFUL! And that's coming from someone who likes rum!

I must of done something wrong. The sauce never thickened, I stirred and stirred for at least half an hour in the end I decided to add some cornstarch but still stayed a bit runny I did not want...
