Coffee sauce

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Sugar
1⅔ cup Extra strong coffee; at room temperature
2 tablespoons Cornstarch
2 tablespoons Unsalted butter
⅓ teaspoon Salt

Note: If you would like to serve this sauce chilled, omit butter and refrigerate after sauce has thickened.

In a heavy skillet, melt the sugar slowly, stirring often, until the sugar is a light amber color, about 5 minutes. Slowly add 1⅓ cups of the coffee, stirring constantly. Be prepared for a lot of steam. In a small bowl, blend the cornstarch and the remaining ⅓ cup of coffee until smooth. Stir the mixture into the hot coffee-sugar mixture. Continue cooking over low heat and stir until the sauce boils and thickens, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the butter and salt until blended. Serve warm over ice cream.
