Merry Christmas friends! ❤️
It’s finally here! But just in case you’re still looking for some last minute Christmas inspiration, I’ve put together my favourite easy Christmas desserts for you.
A Christmas classic, who can say no to a slice of baked White Chocolate Cheesecake? With a crumbly cookie crumb, and a creamy white chocolate cream cheese filling, it’s one deliciously rich dessert.
I just love this flourless chocolate cake. It seems many people are following a gluten-free diet these days but that doesn’t have to put a dent in your baking plans.
This Flourless Chocolate Cake has a beautiful texture and just about melts-in-your-mouth, with a crisp, meringue-like crust. It’s really simple to make, with only 5 ingredients, and I promise everyone will love it!
If you’ve ever tried pavlova – a dessert staple here in Australia – you will fall head over heels for Eton Mess. It’s basically a deconstructed pav – but it’s SO much easier and quicker to make.
It’s hard to believe this gorgeous Ice Cream Pudding Bombe is so easy to make. Using store bought ingredients, it comes together in a flash AND it can be made ahead of time. But the best part? It tastes amazing!
And if you’re having a summer Christmas like we are in Australia, it’s the perfect way to cool down after a warm meal.
You can also make this cheesecake ahead of time! Just top it with fresh raspberries and dust with icing sugar when serving!
Enjoy the delightful combination of chocolate, cherries and cream in this Christmas fave, Black Forest Cake. I’ve put together a really simple recipe that results in a magnificent layer cake, perfect for your family and friends. Two layers of chocolate cake, sandwiched together with sweet cherry jam and plenty of whipped cream. Enjoy!
I love banoffee pie. If you haven’t had it before, it’s a sweet caramel or toffee pie with bananas and whipped cream. I also added a secret layer of chocolate along the cookie crust for a little chocolate surprise.
This Banoffee Pie is completely no bake, so you don’t even have to worry about turning the oven on. If you want to make it ahead of time, you can make the cookie crust and the caramel, then just before serving slice up some fresh bananas and whipped cream.
For a warm dessert that can easily feed a group, try my Easy Apple Crumble. Juicy, crunchy apples topped with a cinnamon oat crumble – the best! You can also easily double the recipe. Served warm, it’s best served with a big scoop of ice cream or cream.
If you love gingerbread cookies, you will adore this Spiced Gingerbread Cake. Boasting festive flavours, this soft and tender cake has a creamy caramel frosting. On top are homemade choc ginger cookie crumbs, which add a little crunch.
It’s an easy one layer cake to make and will easily feed 8 people. It’s one of my all-time favourite Christmas desserts.
This Nutella Oreo Cheesecake has been a staple at my family Christmas lunch. It’s pretty quick and easy to throw together and you can make it the night before. But everyone loves it because the filling is oh-so-chocolate-y and those toasted hazelnuts just make it complete.
Instead of making a big pavlova this Christmas, try making my 2-ingredient Mini Meringues. They’re so easy to make and you can serve everyone their own individual pav.
For a decadent dessert that can make a day or two ahead of time, there’s no better choice than my Turtle Pie. Featuring a homemade pecan cookie crust, a creamy brown sugar caramel and a two-ingredient chocolate ganache, it’s a truly indulgent dessert.
Serve with a dollop of cream and plenty of fresh fruit for a truly sumptuous dessert.
If you’re looking for a super easy no bake dessert that will feed a crowd, you can’t go past a Classic Trifle. Mine is made with store bought cake, custard and plenty of fresh fruit so it’s creamy, fruity and delish!
It’s a fabulous light and fresh dessert after a big, heavy Christmas feast.
Whatever the dessert, I hope you and your family have a very happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Talk soon x
