    That sounds really yummy.

    It sounds great think I will try this. I have one problem I can't use quark have tried it in a variety of ways in the past and I just don't like it. Do you think sweetened VLF fromage frais would work ok

    I'm going on the hunt for coconut flavouring - can't seem to find it! Might use almond extract instead....
