All-in-One White Sauce
Ingredients
 570ml milk
 25g sauce flour or plain flour
 50g butter
 salt and freshly milled black pepper
Equipment
You will also need a Delia Online Little Gem ‘Sauce’ pan (heavy gauge aluminum, measuring 16cm by 8cm or similar)

Method

When you're ready to make the sauce, put the milk in a saucepan, then simply add the sauce flour, butter and seasoning and bring everything gradually up to simmering point over a medium heat, whisking continuously with a balloon whisk, until the sauce has thickened and becomes smooth and glossy.

Then turn the heat down to its lowest possible setting and let the sauce cook very gently for 5 minutes to take the raw taste out of the flour, stirring from time to time.

Finally taste and check for seasoning.

If you’re on a low fat diet you can make a fat free version with just cold milk and sauce flour.
