My all time favorite dessert is this Graham cake with Mango. I always make this when I'm home because this is a good substitute for ice cream and cake. This is so easy to prepare and all the ingredients are all available in stores.
Here is the recipe:
2 packs of graham crackers.(reserve 3 crackers and crush it in a bowl with a glass)
4 large mangoes, seeds and skin removed.
1 can condensed milk
2 packs all purpose cream.
1. Place a layer of graham crackers at the bottom of your container (preferably plasticware with cover).
2. Mix the condensed milk and cream together and add a layer on top of the graham crackers.
3. Place your sliced mangoes on top, make sure that the cream covers all of the graham.
4. Repeat procedure until the container is full. Top with crushed grahams.
5. Serve cold.
Last Christmas was a special one for me. After 6 years, I was able to spent the holidays here in my hometown with my family. From Manila to my hometown was an annoying and uncomfortable trip. I was restless for the whole 16 hour cutting trip. I arrived home on the 21th of December and we immediately plan for our noche buena and medya noche.
We prepared a simple and easy to prepare food for the holidays. Wine and macaroni salad is always on our list. We don't cooked spaghetti, we had sotanghon noodles instead.
My parents avoid lots of foods especially those that are high in cholesterol. My Mom is really good in baking. I requested for a rice cake but she decided to bake this marble chiffon cake. It is so good!
I think noche buena won't be complete without a ham on the table together with a red wine.
