How to make it

  • Bring the first 4 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over low heat.
  • Remove from heat and cover the pan.
  • Let it steep for 15 minutes.
  • Whisk the egg yolks and sugar to blend in a medium bowl.
  • Slowly whisk in the cream mixture.
  • Return custard to the same saucepan. Cook over low heat until the custard thickens and leaves a path on the back of a spoon when finger is drawn across.
  • Strain the custard in a bowl.
  • Cover and chill.
  • **This sauce will not keep for more then a few days.
  • *****An easy dessert**I make this sauce a few days before I need to serve it. I buy rich vanilla ice cream and coffee ice cream and make scoops of ice cream which I put into a long plastic container. There are two rows of scoops. I refreeze the scoops or balls of ice cream for a few hours. To serve this, in a bowl, add one scoop of vanilla ice cream and one of coffee. Pour a basic chocolate sauce or hot fudge over the coffee ice cream and pour the kahlua sauce over the vanilla ice cream. (Caramel sauce and butterscotch sauce are great too! I sprinkle with toasted chopped almonds and add a dollop of whipped cream over each scoop. Good stuff, Maynard!

    Delicious, Annie, and so many variations possible - I love recipes that you can give a new flavor to whenever you're in the mood (thought the kahlua and bailey's would have to be at the very top of my list - love them both!). Thanks for sharing it...Krum
