Why yes, there was a brandy sauce yesterday. Here is another with different proportions, still sketchy directions.
I do feel it necessary to explain that while my great-grandmother cooked with brandy…and other alcohol…she put up a strong anti-alcohol front.
4 egg yolks
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons brandy
1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla
Cook 5 minutes, then cool over ice water.
