I've been making this for more than 40 years, it's about the only recipe I use any more for a filling for breakfast crepes. It's the best custard base I've ever tried, so creamy and sweet. When the kids were much younger, I left out the brandy and it's just as good. But the brandy really does liven up the filling, so I recommend using it if possible. I've also used it to sweeten up a bowl of fresh fruit.
