From sponge puddings to crumbles, cakes, trifles and so much more, a drizzling of this tasty yet easy to make vanilla custard sauce brings any of these desserts over the top! Such a versatile sauce that you'd use over and over again!
Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat up to medium until bubbles appear along the edges of the pan. As the milk heats up, in a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until thickened and has a lemony color.
Slowly pour in the hot milk into the egg mixture while stirring. Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook on low heat for about 6-8 minutes, stirring constantly, until it coats the back of a spoon. Strain the sauce in a sieve and then add the vanilla to the sauce. Serve the custard sauce with your favorite dessert either cold or warmed up.
