This is the classic boiled custard sauce, lightened and slightly less sweet than traditional recipes. Unmatched for versatility, it is delicious on warm puddings. For an even simpler dessert, pass a pitcher of cool custard sauce along with a bowl of assorted fresh fruits. The English serve this sauce on virtually everything, including chocolate cake: No wonder the French call it crème anglaise.
