Lemon syrup sauce – Recipe No 126



Lemon syrup sauce

  • ½ lemon
  • 1 dessertspoon golden syrup
  • 1/4 pint water (add more water if sauce is too thick)
  • 2 teaspoons custard powder

Grate the lemon zest from the skin of the lemon. Cut in half and squeeze the juice from half the lemon. Put into a pan with the water and syrup. Mix the custard powder smoothly with the lemon juice and add to the liquid in the pan, stirring well. Cook for 1 minute. Add more water if needed.

This produces a zingy semi-translucent lemon sauce.
