Pin It Now!


I was thinking on the dessert which I want it fresh and something a little more palatable with some interesting combinations of flavours.
The idea of treating my self with the fruits cocktail with the assortment texture on a bite was attractive and gallant in flavour than ever. The creations of the shape on each selection brought me into a pure fun, slicing and matching them.

Like all other tempting dessert, I came up with spiced fruit cocktail (Es Buah) for our dessert on that day and I have been used to with my mother recipe which perfect to my keen in order of the bright aroma and the flavour contrast, it kicked!
As my expectations that the spices brings a punch of freshness and character,the accent of cinnamon and star anise sets a smooth an extraordinary indulges, that has become an essential enjoyment and a favourite of mine.

Please to be free using your desire fruits, but I should say that pineapple is a must.
