    East Wind Goddess's Note:

    From Teresa Barrenechea in The Basque Table, this is a great sauce to dress up plain cakes or custards. This recipe accompanies her Tarta De Almendras (Almond Tart) and I didn't include it in that recipe because the amount it makes is way more than is needed and it throws off the nutritional values considerably! It is the equivalent to pouring custard, natillas (although more liquid than the firmer Santa Fe style natillas) or creme anglais.

    2. 2
      Reduce the heat to low, and cook gently for about 10 minutes, until the cream is well infused with the cinnamon.

    5. 5
      Heat 1 to 2 inches of water in the bottom pan of a double boiler, and transfer custard mixture to the top pan, or set the bowl over a saucepan containing 1 to 2 inches of hot water.
    6. 6
      Bring the water to a boil, and cook the sauce, stirring constantly, for about 30 minutes or until it thickens, adding more hot water to the bottom pan if necessary.
    7. 7
      Remove the top pan or the bowl from over the hot water, and let the custard cool.
