Need Help!

Hi, I'm moving to a new dorm but there is no oven for me to bake.

 

Could you please suggest any oven-less dessert?

 

Thanks! :)

Assuming you have a dorm room fridge..... visit a bakery and choose a few items that look good and refrigerate/freeze well.

Cheesecake would be a good choice.

The single serve mini pastries found in most grocery store freezers (ready to eat after defrosting) might be something else you could try.

Whatever you do choose make sure you wrap the little plastic container in cling film (cake esp will dry out in fridge) and consume within a few days.

Thank you very much for your kind suggestion 

but I have questions about the Graham cracker crust, it's like cracker crust in blueberry cheese pie or strawberry cheese pie?

and Do you have recipe of those you've suggest?

 

Thanks a lot :):):):):):)

Yes the graham cracker crust is like what is used for cheesecake. You can also use different kinds of crisp cookies, just leave out the sugar.

 

1 1/2 Cups of crushed graham crackers

1/3 Cup white sugar

5 Tablespoons butter, melted

 

You can melt the butter in the glass pie plate in the microwave and then just stir in the crumbs and sugar. Then pat it into place. Once it's refrigerated the butter will hold it together.

 

You can fill this with an 8 oz. package of cream cheese whipped with enough sugar to taste sweet, then add 8 oz. of whipped topping (like cool whip)  Top with pie filling or fresh fruit for upside-down cheesecake

 

You can mix in a can of pie filling or if you want a frozen treat add a small can of frozen concentrate fruit juice.

I'll try that as soon as possible : )

Hope you don't mind
Anyway, thank you very much :)

Nice list @PrincessCookie .

I have tried a few of the cup cakes and the results were pretty decent.

@Watan you should have no problems packing on your freshman 15 now!  ;-)

Some other suggestions- Layered desserts that start with store bought angel food cake, lady fingers or wafer cookies. You could make triffle, tiramisu or icebox cake. I don't have specific recipes that I've used but you should be able to find a lot and choose what sounds good to you.

 

There are also a lot of no-bake cookies. They are more like candy really. They usually start with melted chocolate and oatmeal. Here's one my family calls Uncle Charlie Cookies. You could substitute white chocolate, butterscotch or peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips. Then use any kind of nut and add dried fruit.

 

 

In large microwave bowl heat the following until butter is melted and sugar dissolves., stopping to stir several times. Be sure to use a big enough bowl because the milk might boil up suddenly. It needs to be hot enough to melt the chocolate chips you will be adding.

 

2 Cups sugar

1/2 Cup plus 2 Tablespoons milk

1 stick butter

 

Then stir in until melted- 

1 large pack chocolate chips

(If they don't melt all the way, microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time, until melted.)

 

Then stir in 

3 Cups quick cook or instant rolled oats (I've also used old fashioned oats, it worked fine)

1 Cup chopped walnuts

1/2 C shredded coconut

 

Drop by spoonful onto waxed paper. Chill until set.  Store in container with waxed paper between layers. In warm weather I keep them in the fridge but take them a little while before eating because they are pretty stiff when cold.

 

Another idea- Dessert cheese!

 

If your dorm allows, consider a toaster oven. You can bake cookies, make little pies and fruit crisps and cobblers. They are great for making casseroles and nothing beats it for warming up leftover pizza.
