Why I Love This Recipe

This is a dessert sauce thats great with many different desserts.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 oz egg yolks (about 6 yolks)
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla extract


Add milk to saucepot and heat until a simmer.

While cream is being heated, mix sugar and yolks together in a bowl.

Add a small amount of the hot milk to the yolk mixture and mix. Then add the yolk mixture to hot milk. Continue cooking over med - low heat while stirring constantly. Cook until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and add vanilla (or any other flavorings).

Strain in a very fine strainer. Cool in an ice water bath.

This sauce can be flavored with chocolate (2 oz semisweet chocolate), flavored liqueurs (such as Godiva), or coffee.
