This can be your red and white Canada Day breakfast or dessert.

Summer has arrived in my neck of the woods and we enjoyed a sundrenched long weekend at our cottage in these few days leading up to Canada Day. I hope that you have been able to dive into summer like we have here in Southern New Brunswick.

The weekend continues on this eve of Canada Day and great festivities are planned for tomorrow. I have been looking for our Canada flags to plunk in the garden by the back door but it looks like they have been seconded for yet another game of capture the flag.

It all got me thinking about red and white desserts and what I’d like to eat tomorrow. According to the forecast it’s going to be muggy, so nothing too rich, I think.

I have a fresh bag of cherries and a tub of Greek yogurt and of  course lots of molasses so this will be my Canada Day treat tomorrow:

Molasses roasted cherries with Greek yogurt that has been sweetened with a little molasses.

It’s lovely and patriotic with deep red cherries and thick Greek yogurt. The roasting and the molasses gives a  robust sweetness to the dish and adding molasses to the Greek yogurt gives it a smooth molasses kiss flavour. That’s why this dish works for breakfast or dessert.
