{Guest Blog} Toffee Tea & Almond Milk Panna Cotta

It’s Wednesday again, and I have my guest blogger, Dougal from McFuzzlebutt’s Manchen (Man Kitchen), to share his recipe. However, from now on, Dougal will not be contributing frequently as he finally found, on his facebook, this “Recipe” Tab app  which can store documents and hence Dougal needs to spend more time concentrating on his recipe development. I think this is a great idea to share the recipes with readers and the fact that people can download the recipe will help them when practicing. I may consider having  one of this on my FB page as well in future.

Anyway, the recipe today is Toffee Tea & Almond Milk Panna Cotta, The recipe was nominated in the Food Bloggers Australia Best Original Recipe Competition for 2013.
