Brandy Custard Sauce
From EatingWell: November/December 1993
Not as hard on one's arteries as a classic hard sauce, which blends butter, sugar and brandy. Evaporated fat-free milk lends low-fat richness to brandy's pleasant kick.
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 2/3 cup nonfat evaporated milk
- 1/3 cup sugar
- Pinch salt
- 2 tablespoons brandy
- Whisk together egg and cornstarch in a small heavy nonreactive saucepan until smooth. Whisk in evaporated milk, sugar and salt. Whisking constantly over low heat, bring the mixture to a simmer; it will be frothy and thickened. Remove from the heat and stir in brandy. Let cool slightly.
