My last post featured a deliciously decadent but super simple Vegan Chocolate Gingerbread Bundt Cake and today we have the accompanying Vegan Brandy Butterscotch Sauce. I have written a separate post for this sauce because firstly, it deserves its own space because it is wonderful and secondly, this sauce not only goes with the bundt cake but also over ice-cream, poached pears or apples…

This vegan brandy butterscotch sauce is a lovely, boozy and versatile syrup that is ready in minutes with only five ingredients.

I could wax lyrical about this sauce but I am simply going to leave you with the recipe today. Well, I’ll wax a little but keep it short.

When I created this recipe I was intent on creating a butterscotch flavour without coconut undertones. I love my coconut milk and it is a must in any plant-eaters pantry but I was looking for a little saucepan of nostalgia. I wanted a true sweet brandy sauce and unless my taste buds deceive me, I got it.  I used half coconut milk and half soy milk with unprocessed sugar, vanilla and brandy to create a wonderfully sweet, silky and frankly boozy sauce.

For those wanting a little Christmas spirit in their butterscotch sauce or as a special something over poached fruit or ice-cream, this vegan brandy butterscotch sauce is an intoxicating little brew made sweeter by its simplicity. Enjoy.

You posted this nearly 2 years ago and not a single person has commented? Wow…I definitely say “Wow” because it looks AMAZING!!!

I’m looking for a good brandy sauce (vegan, of course) and this was the first one that popped up in my search, and it sounds absolutely wonderful to have over poached pears with a streusel and oatmeal crumble topping for this Thanksgiving at my family’s place in Washington!

Definitely saving this! Thank you!
