vanilla extract
1 tsp

2 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Cake:
blend butter and cr cheese, gradually add sugar, add eggs and flour- blend well. add extracts and blend. Pour into greased loaf pan or tube pan.

Bake at 325 for 1hr 20m. Check for doneness. It still might have some "jiggle" to it. Just cut off the oven and let it sit for 5-10 more minutes. This will let it finish cooking but keep it moist and yummy.

Sauce:In small saucepan mix sugar and cornstarch together, pour in boiling water and stir until smooth. Turn burner on med-hi and continue stirring until it begins to thicken. Turn heat down to low and add in remaining ingredients. Stir well until butter is melted. Turn off heat completely.
(This will keep in the fridge well for 2 weeks, just warm before serving over your desserts.)
