For my next endeavour, I made a hot lemon sauce to go over a cake, which is very similar to lemon pie filling. The strong lemon flavour really covered up the weedy tasting butter. Lime juice and zest could be substituted to make a lime sauce.
Step one: Make yourself a cake. I chose angel food since it’s my favourite, but a plain white cake would work too. This is not where the weed comes in.
After the cake has cooled, it’s time to make the sauce. In a small saucepan, combine
- 2/3c sugar
- ¼ fresh lemon juice
- Grated zest of one lemon
- 2 tbsps water
Separate 3 eggs and whisk in the yolks.
Over low heat, stir 1/2c of weed butter into the mixture and bring it to a low simmer. Stirring constantly, cook until the mixture starts to thicken. This takes about a minute.
Immediately pour over a piece of your cake and enjoy! Split the sauce between 3-4 people for a good strong buzz.
