It is important to know how to make Vanilla Sauce because it is used for many German dishes and is not really available in the US Supermarkets. It is not custard or pudding. It is a sweet sauce which is using the pulp of a vanilla bean. So it tastes the best made from scratch even you would use the German packaged sauce. Serve it hot over a piece of apple strudel or with pan cakes or waffles.. Happy Cooking!
