Luscious Lemon Sauce

I'm really fond of this sauce and always try to keep a jar of it in the refrigerator. I can't imagine having gingerbread without it and, because lemon is my chocolate, I generally put it on ice cream and bread pudding as well. It has the velvety texture and flavor of a good lemon curd, but it flows with the easy grace of a well-made chocolate sauce. This is really easy to make and I'm featuring it here because I think any serious collection of recipes should include a great lemon sauce. This is a great, if simple sauce. It keeps for up to a month in the refrigerator. That being said, it is still best served warm. You can warm the sauce in the microwave or in a pot of barely simmering water. Here's the recipe.

Luscious Lemon Sauce...from the kitchen of One Perfect Bite inspired by Gourmet magazine


1 large egg - very well beaten

1/4 cup cold water

juice of 1 lemon - approximately 3 tablespoons

finely grated peel of half a lemon

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter


In a small saucepan, whisk beaten egg, water, lemon juice and peel until well blended. Place pan on medium heat and whisk in sugar. Add butter and cook, stirring constantly, until butter is melted and sauce comes to a full boil. Remove from heat, cool slightly and serve warm. Yield: 1-1/2 cups.
