      Wonderful lower fat version of a custard sauce! The amounts of sugar and vanilla were just right. I did use 2% milk, as that's what I had in the house but it's still lower in fat than the usual Creme Anglaise. This would be wonderful served over belgian waffles with fresh berries. There is one problem in that the ingredient list says 1 3/4 cups milk but the instructions say 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 cups. I used 1 3/4 cups total and found it to make a nice thick sauce. Thank you for a terrific recipe, Nolita Food.
