Tita's Fruit Dessert #SundaySupper

Oh my, we all love summer, but the things I love the most are those memories that I have from my childhood, and one of the reasons I love the theme so much this week is because it gives me the opportunity to share this delicious, super easy and so old fashion dessert.

I’m sure many of you know how to make it, but I want to share the recipe my grandmother used to make for us all the time during this time of the year. I love so many aspects of the dessert, especially the way it tastes and how easy it is to make, you don’t need any special ingredients, just some simple everyday ingredients that I know we all have in our pantry.

My way of remembering my grandmother is by cooking all the dishes I learn from her and this is one that it is very close to my heart. I hope you like it and enjoy it just as much as we still do.

For those that don’t go to the beach, we stay at home enjoying all the celebrations and having some rest and family time. We also gather to enjoy a lot of food and delicious desserts. Yum! as I start thinking about dessert it came to my mind a bizcocho de dulce de leche that my grandmother used to make, and this is a secret please don’t tell anybody but, this was a “cake” with wherever we had on the pantry, one thing that my grandma was good at was to created delicious dessert using her imagination.
