Catholic Recipe: Jiffy On-Fire Dessert
For a nameday feast whose saint has fire as a symbol, this is a quick flaming dessert. Flaming desserts make a dramatic nameday treat for children and adults!
A jiffy dessert "on fire" for a small child consists of cupcakes, sugar cubes, marshmallows, and fresh lemon extract. Place a marshmallow on each cupcake. Saturate a sugar cube with lemon extract and place on the marshmallow. Light the sugar cubes. They will flame and toast the marshmallow, giving the children an exciting dessert.Recipe Source: My Nameday — Come for Dessert by Helen McLoughlin, The Liturgical Press, Collegeville, MN, 1962
