This tasty treat is so welcome when we are at sea sailing south.
Not sure if its just me or everyone feels this way but once the boat moves I eat everything I can get my hands on, I blame the fact that it takes more energy for my body to keep balanced in the motion of the ocean! What I do know is the more I eat the better I feel and the better I travel so thats all I need to know!!
Beach body starts once we arrive!!
So here is the recipe for this tasty treat, I have no idea where I got the recipe from I want to say Its from what mum used to make for us as kids.
