This recipe is the lemon sauce I use when serving my mom's Rice Pudding. The recipe as stated here is too sweet for my tastes, I add the juice of an extra lemon to tart it up a bit.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/2-1 tsp lemon zest
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 2/3 cube salted butter, in slices
Combine sugar and yolk with a whisk in a small saucepan. Add rest of ingredients, cook over medium heat, constantly stirring until thickened.
If you'd like to add more lemon juice to make it less sweet, do your adjusting right after all the ingredients come together, before it gets too hot. Hot sugar syrup == lava.
