Swedish Vanilla Sauce

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. If you are new to my blog then Welcome. My diet is for health purposes. If you have allergies or are looking to improve your health in a tasty way then you’ll love my recipes. Sorry to those who are dairy free and follow me. I wanted to make a more traditional version of this.

I have always had Swedish food as my mother is from Sweden and I was an exchange student there. I want my kids to have as many fond memories as I do about the Swedish culture and food. My kids know a lot of different Scandinavian foods. I make Scandinavian foods at home and we used to attend several Scandinavian clubs. My kids took part in Sankta Lucia (Santa Lucia) in the Vasa Lodge and later at a Danish Lodge. They are very familiar with all kinds of Scandinavian holidays as well as other holidays around the world.

If you are of Swedish decent then you probably already have a Vanilla Sauce recipe in your repertoire if not then please try mine Vanilla Sauce is a delicious almost custard-like topping. It is eaten on Apple Pie Filling with Pie Crust Grain Free and lots of other tasty treats like Vanilla Soft Serve ice cream. This is my version of a Swedish Vanilla Sauce. This sauce just has a light vanilla flavor and is creamy. Or use with crepes.

Use with Swedish American Princess cake or American Swedish Vanilla cake


Swedish Vanilla Sauce

3/4 cup cream

1/2 cup milk

1 vanilla bean

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons maple sugar

2 egg yolk

5 tablespoons tapioca flour

pinch of salt


Stir together milk and cream then whisk in the eggs. Add the caviar from the vanilla bean (this is the seeds inside the bean- carefully cut a slit down the center and scrape out the seeds or what some call the caviar. Add caviar, sugar, tapioca, and pinch of salt to the milk mixture. This is the European way of making the sauce. Over a double boiler heat the mixture or using a glass dish that fits inside a pot (a homemade double boiler). Heat on medium for 10- 15 minutes whisking the whole time. Whisk until it is a thick like pudding consistency. Remember it will thicken a little more after it has cooled. Once it comes to the consistency you are looking for remove from heat. Allow to cool slightly. Place in a bowl and place a piece of plastic wrap down on and touching the sauce. You don’t want it to develop an unsightly skin. All to cool enough to place in the fridge. You can make a day or two in advance. This is also a yummy vanilla pudding you could serve small bowls of this yummy sauce with a small dollop of whipped cream or whipped coconut milk.
