I followed this recipe a little. I used 3Tbsp sugar and 1 large Tbsp cornflour mixed them together in a bowl. I had no powder so when following wet ingredient recipe of two yolks and 1 cup of milk I added a good amount of American mustard. I did add more once the dry and wet ingredients were thickening until it tasted good. I didn't add the vinegar instead using a mix of boiled water from cabbage and leeks and carrots as the sauce co tongued to thicken - 01 Oct 2016
