This Cake is soon going to be one of my familyz favourites and it has been proved . You may also check by the pictures as you proceed on this page . It took them only minutes to finish it all.
My vacations are on and I am enjoying it in my hillside cottage in Nainital (India) where you can find best of the fruits in this season. From fresh n juicy Peaches to over sweet Apricots,from dark cherries to sweet n sour plums.
So this time I decided to steam a cheese cake and to combine it with a fruity flavoured topping. But a naughtiness tickling in my mind made me to start with a Oh..So….Boozy Cherry and Dark Rum sauce .
You just need these ingredients to prepare this heavenly tasting cherry sauce.
Ingredients for Boozy Cherry Sauce
1.Pitted Cherries 2 cups
2.Dark Spiced Rum 1/4 cup
3.Granulated Sugar 1/2cup
4.Vanilla flavoured custard powder 1+ 1/2tbsp
1.Combine the cherries, sugar, 1/4 cup rum in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 mins until the cherries are soft.
2.Carefully scoop out 3-4 tablespoons of the hot liquid into a small bowl. Whisk in the custard powder until smooth.
3.Stir the cornstarch mixture back into the cherries and stir continuously until the sauce is thickened.
4.Remove from heat.
5.Allow to cool before transferring to a mason jar or other air tight container for storing.
After preparing the sauce I switched to steamed CheeseCake and started collecting Stuff for it.
