I wanted to make Kahlua Bunt cake serve it with something on it or next to it. I had no Ice cream, I didn't want whipped topping and since there were to be three children around the table, I didn't want to make a glaze with Kahlua. I decided a soft custard sauce would be just super. Everyone just loved it. My 10 year old daughter helped make the custard sauce and her 13 year old brother and his friend each had two servings of dessert along with my son and husband. Next time I will double the recipe so I have left over sauce to go with the remaining cake.
