2oz/55g plain flour
1 pint/570ml milk
2oz/55g fine/caster sugar

Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, add the flour and stir to create Roux (a thick paste)

Cook for 1 minute taking care not to let it burn

Slowly add the milk using a hand whisk and keep the mixture moving all the time

Continue to whisk  until the sauce thickens(about 5 minutes)
