Vanille Soße

  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 300 ml milk
  • 3 tbsp granulated sugar


To Make the Sauce

  • Split a vanilla bean in half and scrape out the inside.
  • In a medium saucepan combine the vanilla bean seeds, milk, and sugar.
  • Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently until it starts to steam and the sugar is fully dissolved.
  • In the mean time whisk up the egg yolks until frothy.
  • Once the milk is heated, turn the heat down and slowly whisk 1/2 cup of the milk mixture into the egg yolks to temper them.
  • While stirring continuously, add egg mixture back into the saucepan and raise the heat to medium.
  • Stirring frequently, cook until the sauce thickens slightly and coats a wooden spoon.
  • Turn off the heat, pour through a sieve into a container and cover with plastic wrap to prevent it from forming a skin. Then cool it to room temperature and refrigerate until needed.


This will keep in the fridge, covered for 4-5 days.
