Cream Anglais or Custard Sauce

The first recipe is my Mother's recipe. The second is mine and I think it is better (sweeter). Great on the Bread Pudding.

3 eggs
3 tablespoons sugar
Pinch salt
1 rounded tablespoon flour
2 cups milk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Blend. Cook and stir in double boiler or heavy saucepan until it begins to thicken. It will thicken more when it is chilled.
