Expert Tips

Remaining bourbon sauce (you’ll want to make plenty so you have leftovers) is perfect for drizzling over ice cream, pancakes, pound cakes, angel food and countless other desserts. It even makes a good dipping sauce for fresh fruit!

A scoop of fat-free ice cream or frozen yogurt on the side makes this classic dessert even more divine.
