  1. Thanks for this recipe for how to make Vanilla Dessert Sauce. This vanilla topping can be used in combination with many desserts, and since I am a fan of the vanilla flavor, I will definitely give it a try.
    Since we are all sweet tooth at home, I don’t believe there will be anything left and it won’t need to be stored in refrigerators. I will try it together in combination with pudding first.
    Friendly greeting,

  2. I do not have access to cornstarch currently as it’s been bought out in my area. Is there an alternative I can use, will potato starch work fine for this recipe? As I have made my own extracted potato starch in the past, but I also currently only have buttermilk and coconut extract.(hopefully that will be fine I know it won’t be vanilla dessert but thats fine.)

    1. Potato starch can be substituted for cornstarch in the same amount.  As far as the coconut and buttermilk, I think it would be worth giving it a try.  The buttermilk will give it some tartness, which you could smooth out with a bit more sugar if you choose to.  The coconut extract will definitely make it “coconut sauce” as opposed to “vanilla sauce” but there’s nothing wrong with that!  Please let me know how it comes out!
