How to make the Sauce
This recipe is adapted from Epicurious’ Spiced Rum Sauce. I used a little less sugar and more spiced rum in mine. It was spot on with the extra sweetness of the vanilla ice cream and the natural sweetness of the grilled pineapple.
What you will need for this amazingly easy sauce is:
- Brown sugar
- Whipping cream
- Unsalted butter
- spiced rum
Serve this Spiced Rum Butter Sauce warm over ice cream, cake or like us, over grilled pineapple.
