Cinnamon Vanilla Sauce for Fresh Fruit

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Brenda.

A delicious sauce spooned over fresh fruit. Try spooning over fruit topped poundcake as well. I found this recipe on the evaporated milk can.

I would say 3 1/2 stars. I thought there was too much cinnamon flavour (and I usually love cinnamon) but it seemed to be overpowering on the fruit. I would definitely try this again and reduce the spice. Nice texture. Thx for posting.
