My grandmother Lola used to bribe my brother and I with this recipe: “First do some chores, then I’ll make you dessert”. Her recipe was a little more straight forward than this, and I actually never had the opportunity of writing it down while growing up… she never wrote it down either, it was passed down orally, the old school way. The one thing I remember though is that if by any chance my grandfather Renato was around, he would ask for a shot of coffee to be added to it, as he loved the “adult” touch to it; a wonderful and subtle back flavor of espresso…. and that’s how I got to love it even more.
I had to re-develop this recipe through the years, and I think this version of it is the best I have ever made, this one is for the books… and for all your family and friends to enjoy!!!
