This turned out well. (I only made the sauce to serve over Smul Paj (Crumb Pie) as it was the only Swedish vanilla sauce I could find on Zaar) A note: Potato flour and cornflour are called potato starch and corn starch in North America. I used white sugar, tapioca starch which acts the same as cornflour/starch, as we are corn free, plain rice milk to replace the light cream to be dairy free, and I used a no alcohol vanilla instead of the vanilla sugar. I will try this whole recipe next time!
