A delicious orange and ginger sauce recipe for any type of cake and sweets. This sweet and tangy homemade sauce recipe is an excellent accompaniment to chocolate pie recipes too!
You can use coconut sugar or brown sugar instead of regular granulated white sugar. However, the sauce will be much darker and sweeter.
You need to let it boil for 12 minutes. This will prevent crystals from forming. If your syrup crystallizes in the bottom of the bottle, either: the proportion of sugar to water is too high or the mixture wasn’t heated long enough. Any sugar crystals remaining in the syrup can cause others to crystallize.
You can pair this sauce with sweet fortified wines.
Store this sauce in a glass container in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 weeks.
A perfect ginger sauce recipe for the sour chocolate cake recipe that also pairs so well with sweet wines.
- Vin Santo
- Cream Sherry
