This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder. One warning, however: 1) use a small, "thick-bottom" saucepan, and 2) cook over low heat and don't allow the mixture to boil or it will curdle! If it does curdle, you might be able to salvage it by blending briefly in a blender. [Measurements are U.S. Standard}

Irish Apple Cake with Custard Sauce ~ The cake is excellent all on it’s own, but what really turns it into a decadent dessert is the custard sauce. Poured warm over the top of a slice of apple cake, its creamy sweetness is the perfect addition to the thick fruit filled cake.

Vanilla Custard Sauce from Food.com: This is a recipe from Bon Appetit, October 1998, one that is so delicious that it needs no tweaking...the combination of these simple ingredients creates perfect kitchen alchemy. Decadent in the extreme, save it for those special occasions when you really want to WOW. One of the many reviews on that site used two capfuls of pure vanilla extract instead of the vanilla bean, but since I used a vanilla bean I can not vouch for this substitution.
