RECIPE: ORANGE SAUCE


Ihad my wonderful soon-to-be-ex boss, his lovely wife and their two adorable girls over for dinner last night. Mr G made the ORANGE AND POPPY SEED CAKE (click on the link for the recipe) for dessert and I made an ORANGE SAUCE to go with the cake. I can’t remember where I got the recipe from but it is really nice and if I may say so, a hit with last night’s dessert.

Here is how I made it.


Ingredients
1 cup freshly squeezed oranges (about 3 large oranges) – strained
¼ cup sugar
¼ orange liqueur – I used Cointreau™
Method

In a saucepan, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and whilst stirring constantly, reduce the ingredients to a syrup like consistency.

Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour over desserts such as ORANGE AND POPPY SEED CAKE, ice cream or pancakes.

PS: You could omit the orange liqueur and add 1 to 2 drops of orange essence instead and up the sugar by a tablespoon.
