This custard dessert is a sweet treat typically found in the Andean zone of Colombia. It's very typical to see the families in Bogota enjoying this dessert every weekend after a meal of ajiaco or barbeque. Since the moment I learned the recipe, I haven’t stopped preparing this delicious desert. I usually add a good amount of raisins and a touch of rum. MORE + LESS -
