    You're kidding!? I have to make a DESSERT?!

    I might have been a cook in a former life, but I hate making desserts, cakes, bicuits ( cookies) and tizzy, fiddly things. These are the very few I do make (or plan to make).

    An oldie but a goodie.

    Recipe #14973

    I've made this cake several times, most recently for my MIL's birthday. It was adored. It looks like it takes much longer than it does to assemble, although I did make the cake layers and curd a day in advance so that the day of assembly would be less stressful and time consuming. This is impressive and beautiful. IHHDRO

    Recipe #60490

    A classic old recipe made in the microwave in just 7 minutes.

    Recipe #214460

    If you like a citrus taste, this will hit the spot. It tastes great served with honey butter or whipped cream cheese spread on a slice. (This bread loaf is much better if stored overnight before serving.)

    Recipe #286064

    I learned this recipe from a family when I was living in Switzerland. I didn't have much experience as far as making loaves, but this recipe turned out almost right away and soon became a favourite. The lemon drizzle makes for a nice burst of lemon flavour in the moist loaf. It also tastes really good warm or cooled down! The only problem is that the ingredients are all measured in grams, since I just use a scale. Sorry for the inconvenience...but enjoy!

    Strawberries and cream trifle is a lovely traditional English spring or summertime dessert of luscious fresh strawberries nestled amongst layers of sponge cake, sherry laced preserves, and fresh whipped cream arranged in a pretty glass trifle dish. If desired, add a layer of freshly prepared custard sauce recipe #286831. Delicious! A beautiful addition to the dessert table, or for a ladies luncheon or Afternoon Tea.

    Recipe #353522

    This is great for you guys that have a summer Christmas here in the Southern hemisphere, or anyone else anywhere on the globe! We use to make the traditional trifle with jelly each year, but after I made this one year, we stuck with it! The recipe was originally from the BBC Good Food magazine, but I've made my own variation...

    Recipe #338327

    Can't remember what magazine it is from. This desert requires at least 5 hours of freezing time before serving

    Recipe #318731

    This dessert is an old favourite of many! Everyone seems to LOVE it! It really IS delicious! For some UNKNOWN reason, I seem to make it more often in the cooler months of the year than in the spring or summer! I haven't included the preparation time here mainly because I usually make the pastry case well in advance.

    Recipe #24492

    Posting for Chef #29196 This is from Australian Good Taste magazine. Australian measurements used, one tablespoon = 20ml, one cup = 250ml.

    Recipe #265873

    when I was in the states I went to Wegmans. It is the best most wonderful supermarket you could ever find. They sold brie and camebert cheese with toppings. I came home and couldn't find anything like it, so here is my recipe for a "topping" I usually add this tag FINANCIAL JAM Caused by Politicians, banks, bosses, G.S.T., family, mates, poker machines & credit cards. Tell your friends you have a Financial Jam, And they should bring Camembert!!! It isn't really a recipe, its more of an idea, and I invite you to do your own thing. I have used craisens, in the mix, was great, but I found australian sultanas were way too sweet. You dont have to add the chilli, but it cuts the sweetness. I use Chrissyo's chilli sauce for home use, its great, but the jam doesnt look as good.

    Recipe #265696

    From the Joy of Cooking. I know there are lots of sour cream coffee cakes out there, but this one is slightly different in that there is no butter in the batter. This goes together very quickly, just like the name says, and when it is warm, the texture is just wonderful.

    Recipe #198440

    I've made and loved Ninna's Recipe #87435 for a long time, but last night made this which is loosely based on it. We all really enjoyed it.

    Recipe #302024

    A really easy to assemble dessert that is the prettiest shade of pink. The recipe asks for a spring-form pan, but I made this in a lovely footed glass bowl which looked great. We don't much like white chocolate so would use dark next time.

    Recipe #304172

    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!

    Recipe #62692

    This is a dessert to knock their socks off when you really have no time to fuss. All you need are some pretty basic pantry items and about 20 minutes.

    Made this cheesecake only once, quite a few years ago, but remember it as "sumptuous"!! The perfect dessert - 1985

    Soft banana flavoured dumplings in a toffee sauce. Serve with ice-cream for a delicious dessert.
