If you don’t have a lot more than, say, 30 minutes to prepare a dessert or you’re feeling a little tuckered out after preparing dinner or a day of work, but you still want to make sure that your family has a nice, sweet treat to put the perfect end on their meal, then you might want to read on. Here, we’re going to look at a selection of the easiest and quickest desserts that are still made with love and the chance to put your own spin on them.
A fruity delight
If you’ve had enough cookies and cake as of late, you might want to go for a dessert that’s a little lighter, but still packs plenty of sweetness to go with it. To that end, have you ever tried southern fried apples? All you need is butter, white sugar, and ground cinnamon that becomes a delicious glaze over warm apples for a super easy-to-make treat.
Brownies with an extra spin
Do you love brownies but sometimes wish they were a little easier to just pick up and munch on like a snack instead of a dessert that requires a whole spoon and bowl? While this might be one of the recipes that takes a little longer on this list, these easy chocolate brownies are by no means difficult to make and can feed a whole ton of people.
Get creative with your cereal
You might be familiar with some of the more popular cereal dessert treats, like the oh-so-popular Rice Krispies treats, but if you want to really make the best use of cereal as a baking ingredient, then you should really try baking with them rather than just sticking them together. These cornflake cookies come out super crunchy and chewy, making them especially moreish. They don’t take a lot more than 30 minutes to prepare, either.
No need to bake
Is yours a family that simply can’t resist dipping their finger in the bowl of cookie dough for a taste? Well, rather than being shamed for it, why not embrace the delight that is edible cookie dough? You don’t need to worry about raw eggs or flour with this one, as it relies on toasting the flour that you make it with, with plenty of room to customize with additions like chocolate chips or sprinkles, too.
Enjoy a mug of deliciousness
There are few desserts more convenient than one you can make in a mug. Some might say that’s the entire appeal of a snickerdoodle mug cake, but they also happen to taste fantastic with a light and fluffy approach to cake, and a delicate cinnamon flavor thanks to the addition of cinnamon sugar topping. All you have to do is pop it in the microwave for about one minute after putting all the ingredients together.
A homemade recipe is always going to be more exciting than something right out of the box, but the examples mentioned above shouldn’t use too much time or energy, allowing you a much more relaxing evening.
