Dessert ideas for a Saturday night treat

the other night I went out to a friends for dinner, my DIL made baklava and we had it with custard and nice cream with fresh pineapple - was yummyyyy

If you want a warm dessert what about sticky date pudding or chocolate self saucing pudding or golden syrup dumplings or creme brulee
or a cold make ahead idea - cheesecakes or mini banoffee pie

Oh thank you!

I clicked into this thread, yelped, jumped out of my seat because I forgot the custard was cooked and waiting in the microwave and the prepared trifle in the fridge. Now the wet microwave is spotlessly clean and the trifle setting in the fridge.

Oh and I'd delighting in eating the skin from the top.

Cheats tiramisu . Sponge, packet chocolate mousse, baileys, chocolate syrup and strong coffee. Layer the way you like and finish with a thin layer of whipped cream and grate over some chocolate. Leave for a few hours in the fridge and VOILA! Yum yum yum.

Latest fad is similar (note the theme here) . Ginger cups. Soak gingernuts in baileys for a couple of minutes to soften the outside. Put a dollop of chocolate sauce in the bottom of a pretty glass. Put a soaked gingernut on the sauce, more sauce, another gingernut, more sauce and another gingernut. Pour over a little more chocolate sauce and cover with whipped cream and drizzle over a little baileys and lightly crush over a Flake. We are big, greedy eaters, but three gingernuts are just good after a meal. It is very rich. Yummo!

Now that looked like it would be too complicated but that was awesome to watch and would be so easy. That was cool.

Wow that was awesome - and so easy!

Not sure if you are a feijoa fan however I am going to make this ANZAC night when family are here. Only change is I will use brown rice syrup instead of maple to cut down on the fructose.

I have just made these! They really are as easy as they look! I used crab apple jelly (unwaterered down) and they are stunning. Will def be doing again. Probably on Sunday when family are coming for dinner.

Just edited to say no way you need 2 apples.I used 1.5 and had heaps left over.

Chef_awoftam, Apr 25, 4:28 pm

. and I think if I made them again I'd use filo.

Chef_awoftam, Apr 25, 5:36 pm


mmm. num num num!
