My cousin and her daughter (also my cousin) came for a visit. They are readers of my blog, so they requested the Blueberry Oatmeal Streusel French Toast. I love it when people request a particular food. It takes the guess work out of what to serve them. http://www.shenandoahgatewayfarm.blogspot.com/2014/05/blueberry-oatmeal-streusel-french-toast.html
I wanted to try a different Maple Rum sauce this time. It was really good and I haven't decided which one I liked better.
Maple Rum Sauce
4 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon Maple flavoring
3 Tablespoons Rum
Melt the butter in a small sauce pan.
Add the powdered sugar and stir until combined. I had to use a small whisk to completely incorporate the sugar into the butter.
Add the maple flavoring and the rum. (In the interest of full disclosure, I started with 2 Tablespoons rum. I tasted it and decided in favor of another Tablespoon. If you want to limit the rummyness (this is a word, right?), stick with 2 Tablespoons rum.)
Stir until everything is mixed in and serve warm over the breakfast treat of your choice. This is also good over any dessert of bread pudding. I would be hard pressed to think of a dessert that would NOT be improved by melted butter, sugar and rum
