Kahlua Cream Sauce is smooth, rich, creamy, and decadent. As far as I'm concerned, this sauce is the perfect weekend indulgence after a week of more health conscious eating. I have ripe bananas on the counter now just begging to be made into Banana Waffles; this sauce would be amazing drizzled over them for an indulgent weekend breakfast!

Try this sauce over Slow-Cooker Stuffed Apples or Deep Dish Berry Pie or Mexican Spice Fudge Brownies or Peaches and Cream French Toast Casserole OR try it over the ultimate bread pudding! This Challah Bread Pudding topped with Kahlua Cream Sauce is the food that has filled my daydreams lately.

COOK'S NOTE: If you prefer not to use Kahlua, you can skip it and add an additional teaspoon of vanilla to the sauce. I've made this sauce with and without the Kahlua and it's excellent both ways.

Kahlua Cream Sauce
recipe lightly adapted from Tori Avey
Yield: about 2 1/2 cups

3 tablespoons butter
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon flour
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/16 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon Kahlua liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the cream and whisk to combine. In a small bowl, whisk or stir together the sugar and flour. Add the flour and sugar to the saucepan along with the egg, nutmeg, and salt. Whisk continuously for 10 minutes, until the sauce thickens enough to coat a spoon. Remove from the heat and stir in the Kahlua and vanilla. Serve warm over the dessert of your choice. Enjoy!
