Rich Brandy Pouring Cream

I’m on the run-up to the holiday season, and getting all my recipes tested and ready to go. This sweet sauce is an adaptation of a recipe given to me by my mother in law for a sauce served as an ultimate indulgence with Christmas Pudding. The original was cream thickened with egg yolks, and various flavorings. Mine uses less magic wand: you don’t have to struggle to avoid curdling it, and it is vegan friendly, though still an indulgence not to be repeated on a weekly basis, if you can help it.

3/4 cup raw cashews
1/4 cup (or more) of brandy
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp maple syrup
3-4 tbsp white sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp lemon juice

Put all ingredients together in a blender, and process until smooth and thick.

Chill to thicken further, or serve warm with Christmas pudding or mince pies.


I'd love to hear from you. :-)
