Thanks for such a wonderful recipe. I made a Plum cake and the Creme Anglaise warm poured over it was terrific. This is a keeper. SaderBee
I substituted arrowroot for cornstarch and served this warm over baked apples. I also didn't bother straining it. This makes a lovely traditional custard without the expense of buying custard powder. We don't have this sort of thing often so it seems a waste to have custard powder sitting in the pantry for ages. Thanks for the recipe.
