Crème Anglaise is a light pouring custard. It is a mix of sugar, egg yolks and boiling milk.

To make this sauce, whip the yolks and sugar together until the yolk is almost white; add the milk little by little until all is mixed in. When all have been mixed, place the mixture in a double boiler. Stir the mixture with a spoon until the sauce coats the back of the spoon, and use it immediately. Do not cook the sauce much longer than required, or it will congeal.
