Make bread pudding (or pound cake, ice cream, or baked apples) over-the-top delicious with Leah Chase’s superb Bourbon Sauce, requested by Dee Zook of Safety Harbor, Florida. This sauce is one of our food staff’s all-time favorites. It’s so good, we’ve considered serving it in a glass with a straw!
