These simple desserts are so easy that they'll become your go-to dessert recipes. Think warm hazelnut brownies that you can serve with a scoop of shopbought ice cream, low fat lemon posset that takes just 15 minutes to make using four ingredients and no bake mini tarts that have bases made from crushed digestives for a cheat's sweet canapé idea.
Our pick of easy dessert recipes have been selected because they are either quick to make, simple to assemble or use just a handful of ingredients, or all of those things. This recipe collection is all about cheating it, but with excellent results. Honeyed figs scattered with nuts and spices make another delicious dessert that's unbelieveably easy to make but makes a sophisticated dessert. Strawberry peach plate trifle is so easy to assemble for individual portions that save you having to make a big bowl of trifle. All the recipes are straightforward to make and won't leave you with much washing up either, so they are no-fuss all the way.
The recipes also show that making homemade desserts doesn't have to mean buying lots of expensive ingredients. Many in our collection can be made with storecupboard finds and with just a few ingredients, such as mini chocolate Kahlua pots made with just three ingredients and so simple to make. Dessert will never be boring again and we promise that once you give these recipes a try, they'll become favourites that you'll be making again and again.
