- 3 cups heavy cream
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Combine 2 3/4 cups of the cream with the bourbon and sugar in a medium-size nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
- In a small bowl, dissolve the cornstach in the remaining 1/4 cup cream. Add this to the cream-and-bourbon mixture and simmer stirring often, until the mixture thickens, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and serve warm with the fruitcake.
- The sauce may be stored, after it has cooled, in an airtight container for 24 hours. When ready to serve, warm over low heat.
