Every great buffet has that delicious 'fluff' as I like to call it.
I don't really know if it has a proper name.
All I know if I love it. It is easy to eat it by the bowl-full and not realize how much you ate.
Until you have a belly ache.
Cherry fluff is great also.
I'll share that recipe later. I promise.
But I recently made a bowl of orange fluff and wanted to share the recipe.
It is one that I have had while growing up.
My foster-mother (long story about my childhood..yadda yadda yadda...) would make this for dinner on the weekends. I don't think I ate anything else on the plate!
