Happy Fourth of July


It’s the 4th of July otherwise known as Independence Day in the USA. This is day when Americans celebrate the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain, signed on 4 of July 1776. My American friends say it’s like a UK national Bank Holiday and they have family meals, barbecues and various public events. So a special cake, dessert or pudding which fits the occasion is called for. Key Lime Pie is top of my list. It takes its name from the limes that come from the Florida Keys. Here is an easy recipe made with Carnation Milk which I used to adore as a child. If you can’t get Key Limes then any varieties of lime will do.

Enjoy the Fourth of July! Tell us what you’re having for dessert to celebrate this famous day?
