Miscellany

We already have a commenter dedicated to sharing daily COVID19 lockdown beverage options. But I’m much more about sugar than alcohol. So, tell me, what’s your favorite dessert? Have you had any of it in the last few weeks? If no, what’s a good alternative?

(Recipes should be shared, obviously).
