This reicpe comes from Bon Apetite's 50th Anniversary Issue. The recipe looks kinda long, but it's very simple and the results are fabulous. I usually share my desert with folks at work, but not these...I kept them all to myself. Please try them! You won't be dissapointed!
This is my traditional way of fixing banana pudding. When ever I take this some where I never bring home any leftovers, so I split it into two casseroles. This will make a 9x13 or 2 smaller casseroles.
This is great over vanilla ice cream or served alongside chicken or turkey. Adding a touch of vinegar and some red pepper flakes make it go great with Pork also. Basically, this sauce has a lot of uses.
Pastry cream is a basic preparation for many desserts. Tart bases, eclair fillings, cake fillings - the list goes on and on. There are many different formulas, but this one is my favorite because it's consistent and I love the brown sugar flavor. If you add about 3 oz. of metlted chocolate to this you will have chocolate pastry cream.
I love clotted cream from England, but it's hard to get here in the US. I found this recipe in a book from the Stars Restaurant, and it comes as close as anything I've tried to real clotted cream. This is a great (IMO, essential) spread for scones and muffins.
OMG these are so good!! My family absolutely loves them... how could anyone not like this with tender apples wrapped in a yummy dough and a sweet cinnamon-brown sugar sauce... top it off, warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or REAL whipped cream.... ooo yum...
This creamy Spanish custard is served as a starter or as a light dessert. It sounds funny but is very delicious! When making custards with extracts, stir the flavorings in after cooking because heat can dull their taste. Plan ahead the mixture must sit in refrigerator for 3 hours or even overnight.
Here's a simple, easy-to-make sauce that I've had for over 25 years. I usually use canned, unpeeled apricot halves. My family finds it great tasting, warm or chilled over ice cream, sherbert, pound cake, waffles, pancakes, or.....
Here is a great way to serve granola for dessert or snack this summer! My personal suggestion is to use my Recipe #23108! I recently made this using Lemon Sorbet for the filling with Recipe #60175 and it was sensational! If you are unable to use all the squares at once, slice and wrap individually with plastic wrap and freeze for individual use! Be creative -- This is a very versatile recipe. Cooking time reflects freezer time. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I do! I discovered this recipe on Recipe Goldmine.
I thought this sounded like a great dessert/fruit can easily to switched to different berries or even frozen berries. Prep time does not include overnight refrigeration. Recipe source: Bon Appetit (July 1991)
This is a GREAT summer dessert, from the July issue of Cooking Light magazine. I saw it on the cover and knew I had to make it. Blackberrys are kind of expensive here, so I just used blueberrys, and it was absolutely delicious. Also I didn't have buttermilk, so I made milk from dried milk, and to one cup of milk added 1 tbsp lemon juice, and it worked just fine.
I got this recipe of my auntie, who always brings this round when she feels people need or deserve a little treat. It's really simple and quite quick to do, but it makes a really yummy and moist cake. If you can't get vanilla sugar, you can use 1 tsp vanilla essence instead, or you can make your own by putting about an inch of a vanilla pod in a screw top jar with 1/2 cup of sugar and leave it for a couple of days (the rest will keep).
This is my "summer Tiramisu" The original recipe uses one packet of sponge fingers, but I use more to get more coverage on this size of tin. I also added the lemon zest and find it is not too tart, you can leave it out of course if you are not sure about it. You don't have to make this in a spring form pan, if you like to scoop it out of a dish, use whatever suits you. I sometimes use trifle sponges or plain cake instead of the sponge fingers. Oh... the lemons are low fat and very healthy!
