Christmas is coming! ❤️
And just in case you’re still on the hunt for some last-minute Christmas inspiration, I’ve put together my favourite easy Christmas desserts for you.
1 Easy Eton mess
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.
2 White Chocolate Cheesecake
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.
The best part? You can make it ahead of time for easy entertaining. And my recipe doesn’t require a water bath – simple.
3 Brownie Cake
I just love this Brownie Cake. It has a beautiful texture and just about melts-in-your-mouth, with a crisp, meringue-like crust. It’s really simple to make, but it tastes like it’s from a high-end restaurant. I promise everyone will love it!
4 Amazing Ice Cream Pudding Bombe
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. And it tastes amazing!
If you’re having a summer Christmas like we are in Australia, it’s the perfect way to cool down after a warm meal.
5 Classic Trifle
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 quick to throw together.
It’s a light, fresh and fruity dessert – win!
6 Black Forest Cake
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!
7 Chocolate mousse cake
You only need 5 ingredients to make this Chocolate Mousse Cake. It’s completely no bake, so you don’t even have to worry about turning the oven on. And you can easily make it ahead of time.
And trust me, everyone at your Christmas dinner will go crazy for that light, melt-in-your-mouth choc filling.
8 Easy Apple Crumble
For a warm dessert that can easily feed a large group, try my Apple Crumble. Juicy, crunchy apples topped with a cinnamon oat crumble – the best! You can also double the recipe. Served warm, it’s best alongside a big scoop of ice cream or cream.
9 gingerbread cake
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 that will feed 6-8 people – perfect for a small family gathering. It’s one of my all-time favourite Christmas desserts.
10 Lemon pie
I love a no bake dessert and this Lemon Pie is one of the best. It’s quick and easy to throw together and you can make it the night before.
With a crunchy cookie crust and a creamy lemon filling, it’s light, sweet and very more-ish. Perfect for Christmas!
11 mini pavlovas
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.
Top with dollops of homemade whipped cream and plenty of fresh fruit for a sweet dessert.
12 caramel turtle pie
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.
