This vanilla sauce is wonderful and quite simple to prepare. It takes 5 minutes to prepare and 10 minutes to cool down. It only takes a few ingredients to make. Serve it with this croissant bread pudding, brioche bread pudding, or just fresh fruit.

Vanilla Sauce Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cooling Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 2.25 cups

Ingredients for Vanilla Sauce

  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • small pinch of salt


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk and heavy cream until very hot but not boiling.
  2. While the milk and cream heat up, whisk together the egg yolks, vanilla extract, corn starch, sugar, and salt.
  3. Add roughly half of the heated liquid at a time to the egg yolk mixture. While adding the liquid, whisking frequently.
  4. Return the egg yolk liquid to the pot.
  5. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then reduce to a low simmer and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes, or until thickened. The sauce will be thickened but still runny at this stage; it will thicken more while cooling and ultimately reach the desired consistency. Please keep in mind that this is a sauce, not a pudding and that it will be pourable.
  6. Allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving, then enjoy! I prefer it somewhat warm.
