A simple white sauce to accompany your favorite Christmas pudding. I think I might prefer the yellow sauce version which uses egg yolks for added richness. I might also take the suggestion to use rum as the flavoring … an eggy, rummy sauce? Now that’s a fun Christmas!
Fanny’s White Sauce for Xmas Pudding
2 cups milk
1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar (depending on taste)
2 tablespoons corn starch
Vanilla or rum or nutmeg to taste
(2 yolks for yellow sauce)
There are no instructions on preparing this sauce. I suggest bringing the milk and sugar to a simmer, then add corn starch. Cook for several minutes until thickened.
Add 1 tablespoon butter and any desired flavoring.
