Bourbon Butter Sauce[edit]

  • 1 stick butter
  • 2/3 C sugar
  • 2 T Water
  • 2 T Bourbon
  • 1/2 t Nutmeg
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 Egg

Heat all but the egg over medium heat till bubbly.


Beat egg into the mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.


Bourbon & Homemade Vanilla Pudding Cake[edit]

I'd never made a pudding-cake before, but the idea is that you include flour and whipped eggwhites in a pudding base, so as it cooks the cake separates from the custard and you get a 2-level dessert. Add a butter-bourbon sauce on top, and you have 3 layers. :)

  • 2 T Butter
  • 1/2 C Sugar
  • Pinch Salt
  • 3 Egg Yolks
  • 2 T Flour
  • 1 T Vanilla Extract
  • 1 T Bourbon
  • 1 1/3 C Milk
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 1/2 t Vinegar

If you can find your ramekins, butter those. If yours are still missing, despite looking all over the friggin' house, butter a cake pan.

Use a spoon to cream the butter, sugar, and salt.


Whisk in yolks and flour. Then vanilla and bourbon, then milk.


Beat egg whites and vinegar still stiff peaks.


Fold whites into batter. Ladle (don't pour) into the cake pan. Bake in a water bath at 325 till browned.


While baking, the cake separates from the pudding base, so you get a creamy custard on the bottom and a crisp cake on top.


Move to bowls and ladle with the bourbon sauce. Sorry I don't have any final pics, but I was rushing to get dessert out to 7 folk. It'd be prettier w/ the missing ramekins, anyway. :(
