C – Wow! That was fast!
I didn’t expect this recipe would be done so quickly. I finished in under 15 minutes. That includes prep and baking. I am a happy person. It’s even faster than making instant pudding from the box.
Although, this recipe isn’t quite what I am used to in pudding. It’s actually a British dessert, a “pudding” as they would say.
I need to make sure I have these five ingredients well stocked in our kitchen at all times. I never know when a surprise visitor might come to the Be Mindful. Be Human. kitchen wanting to try something that we have made.
I loved this recipe. There was only seven ingredients in it. There were lady fingers, strawberries, condensed milk, yogurt, lemon, brown sugar and almonds. It was so simple.
I couldn’t believe the complex taste. The tart strawberries, lemon and yogurt combined very well. The condensed milk wasn’t too sweet in this dish. It enhanced the sweetness of the strawberries, and balanced out the tartness of the other ingredients.
My favorite part was the texture. Have you ever eaten lady fingers by themselves? They are horribly dry and flavorless. But, when you have ingredients like lemon juice, yogurt and condensed milk as agents to turn these cookies turn into a cake, they are amazing.
