Method

Prepare a Crème à l’Anglaise, remove from the heat and stir until it is barely lukewarm. Add 450 g (1 lb) good quality butter per 6 dl (1 pt or 2⅝ U.S. cups) of custard, whisking it in a little at a time. Add a little vanilla sugar if the vanilla flavour of the custard is not sufficiently pronounced.
