"This is so good I will quadruple the recipe next time. It is great on pancakes but it's also delicious poured over pound cake. Yum! My husband and I devour it. It's luscious goodness. Since I first reviewed this recipe I have used it many times. Including as a drizzle over a simple pork roast or over chicken. Delicious!"

"I have made this orange suzette sauce for many years, try it with the baked German pancakes along with blueberries, strawberries, or other's easy & very impressive for company in the morning."
