Does anyone have any recipes for desserts that are simple to make? I am actually looking for a mix between bake & no bake dessert recipes. I wanted to make a simple dessert for me & my other half either tonight or tomorrow night. As we usually don't have dessert, but I'd like to do something such as this for him.. As he is going to be gone away this weekend. So I guess you could say I wanted to do something kind of special for him as I won't see him all to much this weekend. If anyone of you could give me some tried & tested yet simple dessert recipes.. It would be greatly appreciated. I'd also love it if you could include some pictures along with these recipes.. It's not necessary but I love looking at pictures of the things I may be making before hand! . . Thanks for sharing with me! xx

My hubby's favourite dessert is apple crisp, which can actually be pretty simple and quick to make. Dice a couple (4-5?) apples and spread in a square baking dish. In a bowl, mix about 1/2 to 1 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp clove. Add 1 cup oats (quick oats, oatmeal, whatever you have on hand). Stir it all together and spoon over the apples, getting a good layer of oat topping. (I don't have exact measurements, just estimating, you can adjust the amounts of butter and spices to suit your tastes). Bake at about 350 until apples are tender. Serve hot with whipped cream or ice cream if you like, and enjoy! You can also throw in berries with the apples, he loves it when I add in fresh blackberries or strawberries in the summer!

Apple crisp is quite delicious, I do agree! I tend to make this quite often for me & my other half so I kind of wanted something different. But this recipe sounds a little bit different then the one I have.. So I may end up trying this recipe instead next time I decide to make this dessert for us all over again! . . Thanks for sharing with me this recipe! It is greatly appreciated! xx

Here's one of my al time favourites: Cremsnit Ingredients: 50g flour, 125g powder sugar, 1/2l milk, 1 vanilla powder, 30g butter. For the vanilla cream, stir the flour, sugar and yolks in a pan and then pour the hot milk, after solving the vanilla in it. Stir on an open flame until the composition thickens, take it off the flame and then add the butter. Let it to chill. Put the cream between two sheets of dough and then spread powder sugar. Unfortunatelly i can't post any pictures because i uploaded the maximmum amount of photos for today, but you can check some pics following this link: http://www.jurnalul.ro/pictures/2075_poza.gif

Wow I've never tried this type of dessert before. It will definitely be something I'd love to try someday. What kind of flavor is it? Sounds quite interesting. I'll have to get me & my other half to try this out sometime.. As I know we are always wanting to try new things! . . Thank you for sharing this dessert recipe with me! xx

I don't know the exact recipe... but my ma calls it fruit pizza. you take one of the pre-mixed sugar cookie tubes, spread it out on a baking stone or pizza pan, and bake it like normal.. while that is in the oven, add powdered sugar to cream cheese until it is sweet... and slice some fruit. when the cookie is done, spread on your icing mixture and top with fruit.

Here's a great recipe for a trifle which is completely no-bake. One pound cake two containers of fresh strawberries eight small cups of vanilla pudding which you can buy ready made two containers of cool whip you'll need a deep dish or bowl for this dessert. slice the pound cake into cubes and the strawberries into slivers layer each item beginning with the cubed pound cake, then the pudding, then the strawberries then the cool whip. Continue layering like this until you reach the top. I make this dessert frequently and everyone loves it. I don't have a photo, but it looks very pretty especially if you use a clear glass bowl.

This is an easy yet simply yummy dessert. Fried Banana's 2 ripe bannana's 3Tbls of Flour 2Tbls of Butter 1Pt Vanilla Ice Cream 3 Heaping Tbls Peanut Butter Take out vanilla ice cream for about fifteen minutes before you start so it's soft and creamy to work with. Then in a mixing bowl you will add the ice cream and peanut butter. "you may use more or less depending on taste" Then with a pastry knife or potato masher, press the peanut butter into the ice cream till it's swirled in. Place back into ice cream container and put back in the freezer. Now you want to begin by peeling your banana's, then cut them in half down the middle, and then in half the long way so you have a flat side. Then in a frying pan melt your butter on medium high heat. When butter is melted dip the sections of banana in the flour, and place in frying pan. Fry the banana's till they are a light golden brown color, and then flip and fry the other side to the same shade. You may need to adjust heat depending on you stove. When the banana's are done, remove them from heat and place them in your serving dish and top with a generous scoop of the peanut butter swirled ice cream, and enjoy.
