This lemon dessert sauce is a rich, custard-like sauce with eggs, sugar, and fresh lemon juice. It's similar to lemon curd but thinner.
Serve lemon sauce over gingerbread cake, bread pudding, pound cake, or ice cream.
In the top of a double boiler (or stainless steel bowl), combine the eggs and sugar. Whisk until smooth; add the lemon juice, zest, and butter. Stir to blend.
Place the pan or bowl over simmering water and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.
To test, dip a spoon in the sauce. With a finger, make a path down the back of the spoon. If the path is clear and no sauce runs into it, the sauce is done.
