About this recipe: This is the old-fashioned brandy sauce that I make for our family Christmas. Best to make this right before serving the Christmas pudding but it won't take you long to make.

  1. Mix the cornflour and milk together in a bowl. Whisk with a fork to break up any lumps. Pour into a saucepan and heat over gentle heat, stirring until it starts to boil. Add the sugar, stir and remove from the heat.
  2. In a seperate bowl, mix the egg yolk and brandy together. Pour this into the warm sauce, stirring until it thickens. Serve straight away with your steamed Christmas pudding.
