A word from the author
From "Dianne's Delectables: Gourmet Delights" cookbook, where flavors are exquisite and dining is an adventure.
By Dianne Wawrzyniak-Marshall

Oh wow, this sauce is incredible! I use this over my recipe, " Spelt Sensation" (cake).

  • 1 cup sucanat sugar
  • 1 cup unenriched, vanilla soymilk (Eden Foods)
  • 1/2 cup brown rice syrup (very sweet variety)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 pinches French sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon distilled water
  • 2 tablespoons Spectrum Naturals spread (made with canola oil, butter flavor)
Place sucanat, milk, syrup, extract and salt into saucepan.
Combine arrowroot and water in measuring cup or small bowl. This is called a slerri.
Over medium flame, bring sucanat mixture to a boil while whisking. Reduce flame and simmer for 3-minutes while whisking.

Using a thermometer, bring temperature to 190 degrees. As soon as this happens, add the arrowroot mixture.
Whisk only to dissolve. Do not stir after this. Take off the heat and whisk in Spectrum Naturals.

Store in Tupperware container and refrigerate for 2 weeks.

- Sauce will thicken beautifully after an hour or so.
- While the sauce is on medium flame, you want to watch it closely. If you are not careful, it can boil over!
