OK, I think I should just go down through your list of recipes, one at a time, and try every one! This was extrememly quick and easy to do, and flavourful to eat....we added the rum to the brown sugar sauce, instead of mixing with the vanilla ice cream. Next time, I'll add more, and set it aflame!

Two of my friends, Priti and Priya, and their family, really loved this dessert when I had made it for them. My dad enjoys eating this too!
