  1. This looks delicious and the addition of balsamic is intriguing. I’m guessing that the vinegar-tang evaporates in the oven and leaves something more like a sweet, sticky balsamic reduction sort of flavour?

    1. Balsamic and sugar together are like the sweetest dream, you can add these two to almost any fruit warmed. Try lightly pan frying a few whole and sliced strawberries with these two ingredients and serve them while still warm with a scoop of mascarpone. wonderfully divine. kind regards carly
