Milk Street Recipe

Scotch Custard Sauce

1 hour

This sauce is meant to be served chilled; it can be made in advance and refrigerated, tightly covered, for up to 3 days. If you need to speed-chill the sauce, place the bowl of warm custard in a larger bowl filled halfway with ice and water. Whisk the sauce every few minutes until cold.

  • 1

    cup whole milk

  • 1

    cup heavy cream
