Basic Recipes For Sweets & Desserts
We rarely eat desserts in my family. I try to serve soups and main courses that will fill us up as I feel too many desserts will make us unhealthy and will most certainly not be a good investment in a long and healthy life. I have an exceedingly sweet tooth, far more so than the rest of my family, so I know that I would always be the one devouring the left-overs the next day if I made desserts on a regular basis
Instead, I encourage my family to have a piece of fruit after their dinners if they are still hungry. When we have visitors I indulge and I generally choose from these:
Made with puff pastry, apple and spices.
Bread and Butter Pudding
A good use for stale bread.
Caramelized Apple and Strawberry Crunch
Delightful summer dessert with a crunchy almond topping.
Only three ingredients are needed.
Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding
Hot cake layer on top with a creamy chocolate sauce underneath
Creamy Rice Pudding
Even those who hate milk puddings will love this
Just beat it all together and then toss it in the oven for an hour
Pauline's Crumble Topping
Coconut and oat mixture that goes well on top of any stewed fruit
Traditional Aussie dessert
Baked but it looks like it is a steamed pudding. Serve with custard.
Make this in bulk and freeze it for winter
Sugar-free, Dairy-free Chocolate Mousse
Make this in a food processor. Creamy and extremely healthy.
