- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon corn starch
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (I prefer to exclude)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind (I like more than 1 tsp)
- 1 lemon, juiced (I use a large one)
How to Make It
In large saucepan, stir together sugar, cornstarch, salt and nutmeg. Gradually stir in boiling water, then simmer over low heat until thick, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat; stir in butter, lemon zest and lemon juice.
Serve warm over bread pudding (recipe from Southern Living, January 1997).
