Creme Anglaise (Dessert Topping)



I have used this with just plain cake, you can use it over fruit on pie, eclair tiramisu you can use it on any dessert. This is the only topping you will ever use once you try it. I have put it in trifle between layers. It is so decandent. A topping you will never forget.
