“From Sarah Ainley’s book, The World’s Best Recipes, Caribbean section. “This dessert is a delicious family favorite. A richer version can be made with fresh cream instead of evaporated milk. It can also be made using other dried fruit – mango is particularly good.” Cook time does not include the 30 minutes standing time.”
