GF Golden Syrup Sauce

I was excited by this month's theme of 'Feeling Saucy', many an idea has ticked through my brain of what delicious saucy dish I could come up with. Initially I thought I would base my sauce around fruits, to fit in with spring.

But then..........................

I had a chocolate craving and nothing but my favourite GF Chocolate Fudge Brownie's would suffice(this recipe can be found in the Sweet Things tab at the top of the screen). Now it was a sauce to go with my delicious brownies, something nice and sweet with a hint of caramel/toffee flavour.

I didn't want something heavy, a light drizzly sauce to compliment the delicious gooey chocolate fudge brownies.

The recipe that I used was one that my Gran used to make golden syrup dumplings, one of my childhood favourites. I only used the sauce recipe and added a tablespoon of cornflour to thicken the sauce slightly.

Poured over warm Chocolate Fudge Brownies it was a taste bud delight, my friend and I both went back for seconds, it was just too delicious too pass up.

The best thing about this sauce is that is not only simple but gluten free! Quite often pre made sauces are filled with gluten, leaving us coeliacs and those on a gluten free diet to eat plain food and not try delicious sauces.

This sauce only takes 5- 10 minutes to cook and is so delicious no one will have to miss out on a tasty sauce again!

GF Golden Syrup Sauce

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 desertspoon butter
1 desertspoon golden syrup
1 desertspoon cornflour (mix in 1 desertspoon of water to make a paste)

Place water, sugar, butter and golden syrup into a saucepan on low heat, stir until butter is melted and sugar is dissolved, stirring constantly. Bring to the boil, add cornflour mix to thicken sauce and mix through. Pour into a gravy jug and pour the sauce over your Chocolate Fudge Brownies.

I hope you enjoy this sauce as much as I did.
