Oh this recipe is just devine! So very easy to make. I tripled the batch for this mornings breakfast pancakes and tomorrow nights lemon chicken. I added the slightest dusting of saffron powder to give it that georgous golden yellow colour. Stay with it on the stove top and stir constantly because once it starts this sauce will go from runny to thick in seconds ! love it :)

This is a very good recipe. It's quite easy, the instructions are simple to follow, and it comes out well every time. I used it as a sauce for a side dish I made, but I think this is better suited as a desert topping. Still very good, and I'll make it again!

Simple and clear recipie with ingredients that are easy to find. I used 2 Tbs of flour since I didnt have cornstarch. The final consistancy was closer to a gelatin than I had expected which may or may not be due to the subsitution. Although it did taste great over pancakes.
