This was very easy and yummy! It looks like an elegant dessert - thanks!!
The best part of this yummy dish is its only four simple ingredients which most people usually have on hand. We make this in our home quite often since its quite simple and taste so good.
Back to the reason the comments area is here for. This is a great recipe. Tried it first at home and now it is a staple at our little hometown diner. Thanks for sharing such a great and quick dessert. We also have people that are requesting them for breakfast.
That wasn't very nice luvjim. Maybe elorsmom is just starting to cook. Didn't you have to learn at one time or are you one of those people who just knows everything?
It is from the caremelized sugar from the first step in the recipe. DUH!
