Photo by [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia CommonsI remember finding this recipe as a young teen, while browsing through my mom's enormous recipe book collection  It didn't come from a fancy glossy recipe book  but from one of those collections that some amazing, brilliant Tannies have put together, collaborating their favorite, tried and tested recipes. Those books are always the best!

15ml Milk                        (DF: Use Rice milk)
