Melt butter in a small saucepan set over medium heat. In a medium-size bowl, stir flour with sugar. Then whisk into melted butter until mixture is moistened. Stir in milk until smooth. Cook, whisking frequently, until thickened and smooth, about 5 minutes. Stir in brandy and vanilla. Remove from heat.
This is a lovely, easy sauce. I didn't use the brandy and substituted 70ml of the milk for cream, as it was what I had in the fridge. I warmed a spiced sponge cake, poured this on top, to make a 'sticky-toffee pudding'. Went down very well! Just watch out for the sauce thickening - once it starts it is very quick to get thick! - 20 Mar 2012
I thought this was a very helpful recipe! It made a delicious toffee sauce without the use of cream which can be quite fattening. I shall be using this again However i think the picture used is a little unappetizing, but good recipe. - 12 Apr 2015
