What is your dessert ?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have a little bit of a sweet tooth......


I realize that not every meal must end with a dessert (even though I was raised that way), but there are some favorites from when I was a child until now.


Top 5 are.... (the list would be longer but...)
  1. Crème brûlée made with Cointreau and orange zest (rested in fridge for 24 hrs)
    Poached pears in red wine with chocolate sauce
    Maple chiffon pie
    Lemon tart
    Strawberries Romanoff


Is there a dessert you enjoy alot ?



ps. an apple on the run....

Desserts...I don't generally indulge, but if I were to make a list (of what someone else could make for me - I am not a good sweets cook :) )...it would be:

1. Panacotta
2. Black Forest Gateaux
3. Filled brandy snaps
4. Baklava
5. Rum and raisin icecream - great on hot summer's day

Petals...I thought you would have more chocolate in your list :)

I've heard of people who love desserts that rather than having a starter, main and dessert, they just have 3 courses - all desserts hehe. What a way to go!

Well...................let the truth be told..................

I have two verrrrry small squares of Lindt (usually orange) 70 % a day, just to take the edge off....
Because they say a little is good for you !

And who am I to challenge that ? Right.

I don't recognize a lot of the desserts mentioned above. What is a clootie?

My favorites are:

- cinammon apple pie with custard
- carrot cake with lots of cream cheese frosting
- yellow cake with dark chocolate frosting
- blueberry pound cake
- hot glazed krispy kreme doughnuts (don't judge me too harshly)

A clootie dumpling is a Scottish cake-y boiled/steamed dumpling/pudding rich with fruits and made with suet. It is usually boiled in a cloth (cloot, in Auld Scots/Lallans) - hence, clootie dumpling.

I'm not much of a pastry chef, so my own offerings tend towards the simple and/or rustic.

Cheesecake -- including Crostata Ricotta (Italian Cheesecake)
Cassata Siciliana
Mexican Chocolate mousse
Praline Souffle
Fruit pies
Fruit cobblers
Fruit tarts
Tarte tatin -- apple, peach, or pear
Ice creams, Sherbets, Ices

Eve's Pudding
Gooseberry fool (or rhubarb or raspberry)
Eton Mess


???? ok we need a translation here....

Are you're puddings the same as ours?
milk, eggs, sugar, flavoring, sometimes cornstarch/flour

Seems like brits use black currant, rhubarb and gooseberry much more than we do in the states.....love um!

We use the word puddings interchangeably with desserts, 'afters' etc!

Eton Mess is a confection of broken up meringues, double cream and sliced strawberries/raspberries/other soft fruits all tossed together - in other words a Mess, which was supposed invented as the posh boys' school, Eton!

Eve's pudding: apples, with a sponge topping - but I also make it with gooseberries or rhubarb

Cranachan: layers of toasted oats, drambuie flavoured double cream and raspberries (also good with stewed gooseberries or rhubarb)

Gotta go to a meeeting, will continue later!
