Basic white sauce
Cook time
Total time
  • 40g Butter
  • 40g plain flour
  • 1½ cups full fat milk
  • 80g cheddar or colby cheese (optional)
  1. Melt the butter.
  2. Add the flour to the melted butter and cook. This is really important if you don't cook the flour your sauce won't taste creamy it will taste floury!
  3. Using a whisk slowly add the milk stirring all the time. Using a whisk pretty much guarantees you won't get lumps.
  4. Leave to on a low heat simmering to thicken about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent the sauce from sticking.
  5. Add the cheese if desired.
