Kalakand

Sweets made with milk which are soft, moist and rich are liked by most. The kind of colourful and tasty sweets lined up in a sweet shop always attracts everyone. But they can be quite expensive to buy and are mostly reserved for special occasions. But what if these kinds of sweets can be made at home with simple ingredients. One such sweet is ‘kalakand’, it is one of my favourite sweets and I absolutely love making it. They turn out to be so moist and are very fresh when made at home. They have to be made ahead of time because it needs some time to set and tastes better that way. ... “Kalakand”

Crumble is a famous English dessert made from juicy fruits like peaches, plums, apricots, cherries, blueberries mixed with sugar. On top of these fruits a crumble topping made of flour, sugar and butter is added and baked off in an oven till crisp and golden. ‘Crisp’ is another variation of a crumble which generally has oats on top which crisp up when baking. This one is a delectable dessert and I am sure everyone will love it especially if it is served with vanilla icecream. Here I have used peaches and blueberries. Peaches are best in summer, flavourful and juicy. Peaches are like almond fruits, cherry fruit or plums. I love the crumble recipes from Ina Garten of Barefoot Contessa. ... “Peach and Blueberry Crumble”
