Classic Hard Sauce

Plum pudding is one of my favourite Christmas desserts. I don’t have it much anymore as it no longer seems to be a favourite of others. I came up with this hard sauce recipe in the mid ’70s trying to mimic the original hard sauce I once had at someone else’s home.


3/4 cup butter or margarine
1 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3-4 tbsp brandy or rum
pinch of nutmeg


With electric mixer or by hand beat butter until fluffy. Gradually beat in sugars until well blended. Add brandy or rum and nutmet. Mix well and chill.
