This is an easy sauce to make, and it tastes pretty good, too. You can serve it with ice cream, pound cake, yogurt, pancakes, waffles, ham, or just use your imagination and combine it with whatever suits your fancy! Source: Southern Living, January 1986.
This yummy sauce goes very well with my Recipe #59337. It's also good on biscuits, and sometimes I pour it over vanilla ice cream ENJOY! Prep time includes time to boil. Serving sizes vary depending on how much you use hehe.. its just an estimate.
Wonderful served hot over ice cream (don't forget to sprinkle some salted peanuts on top!) or drizzled over pound cake and fruit. Then again, there is the option of just eating it straight off the spoon.
This is excellent, makes a lot, and keeps well. Be sure to follow the directions. I had it go sugary on me once and I believe it was because I tried to mix the water in too fast. Number of servings is difficult to decide - it has so many uses and sometimes I put a tablespoon over ice cream and sometimes I use a cup or more for recipes calling for caramel sauce. But since Zaar makes me pick a number I picked 48.
While Charlotte aux Pommes (the recipe is posted separately) is often served in France with an apricot sauce, in Normandy, this custard sauce is often what comes with a Charlotte. It is also good over fruit, or in trifles.
This came from my niece years ago and is the very best sauce I have had. It is thick and chocolaty (if that's a word). It is easy to make and you don't have to worry too much about any lumps because you put it through a sieve when done. It is so creamy. Put some in a pretty jar and give as a gift with an handmade tag.
