    arabianeyes's Note:

    this is the perfect palette pleaser.... its delicate n just sweet and exotic enough for any and every occasion. i have tried quite a few of these recipes and ended up combining them to my liking and ended up with what i consider the best...the best part is, it doesn't take a lot of time to prepare or bake and the longer it stays, the lovelier it tastes. my advice, bake from the night before...hope u enjoy it! :)

      Oh BABY!! This is very easy & over the top fabulous! I think I have a photo of what was left after the vultures were finished. I did forget to add the coconut so i sprinkled it over the top, lol. Still yummy. I rationalized eating so much by saying it was healthy because it was made with yogurt! Made for Go to Saudi Arabia in the NA/ME Forum 6/13.
