Day 19: favourite dessert

Hello again world

Today we are back to the impossible narrowing down of favourite things.

I am most certainly a dessert person – or as we call them in the UK, puddings. I really like fruity puddings, the fresher the better so things like my mum’s homemade peach and raspberry crumble is just great.

Ina Garten does something similar, except in her cookbook she calls it a peach and raspberry crisp.

When my mum makes hers she adds ground rice to the crumble, which gives it extra crunch. It’s really good with custard or ice cream.

Another favourite is key lime pie…which is totally bad for you and should only be eaten on special occasions. There’s almost nothing healthy in it. Seriously. Just look at the recipe!

375g/12oz plain or sweetmeal digestive biscuits, crushed
150g/5oz unsalted butter
grated zest and juice of 4 large limes
570ml/1 pint double cream
1 x 397g/14oz can sweetened condensed milk
crystalised lime zest, to decorate

To make the base, you crush the biscuits and add the melted butter. Press it firmly into a shallow dish. Put in the fridge to cool/set

Then to make the filling by whisking together the condensed milk, lime juice and zest and the cream. Pour this over chilled biscuit base and set in the fridge for several hours.

Try it 🙂
