Sauce preparation

1. Mix all ingredients in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the butter has melted, the sugar has dissolved and the sauce is heated.

If you take the "cake" out of the oven, it is best to make a few holes with a fork, so that the sauce can penetrate well and the cake becomes nice and juicy.

Best served with crème anglaise
