      In the dessert category, I find pecan pie with vanilla ice cream irresistible, though pie (any flavor) with a good cup of coffee is a good way to finish a meal. But my weakness isn’t desserts, but snacks; one between breakfast and lunch, another between lunch and dinner, and one before bedtime. My go-to snack for the past year has been cheese and Triscuits or crackers, and it was about a year ago that I discovered Old Croc sharp cheddar cheese – an Australian import. It has even become my regular lunch sometimes, and it’s a miracle I’m still a size 10 instead of size 24.

      Hugs,
      Bettylou

          Yes, they do, Grace…and I have tried it, but it’s not my thing. You should try it. And they also make a version with jalapeno pepper.

      I am so weak I have been on a no sugar diet for a couple years but this week my step daughter was up and we had a dinner for her.

      I am so weak

      I have to quit eating this stuff but yes I am a big fan of Tarimisu from a far of course.

      Fun but tough Post for me Grace.

      My birthday is coming up and my SO has promised to make me something I absolutely adore for dessert, chocolate icebox cake.  It’s something I seldom have but find absolutely scrumptious.  Sadly one doesn’t see it too often (if at all) on restaurant menus.  So, when I do have dessert while dining out (which  we do now go out regularly especially since we’ve had our shots and restaurants are welcoming back patrons) I find cheesecake to be a goto selection.  I also like apple pie a la mode.  The other dessert I also love which is seldom seen is burnt sugar layer cake, which has that carmelized sugary frosting over a carmel colored cake mix.  My grandmother made it for us grandkids, but my mother never really learned it, so my grandmother’s recipe is basically lost. My SO who enjoys cooking and experimenting usually attempts it at Thanksgiving and has pretty much come quite close to duplicating what I remember from years past.

          Here are the ingredients for the cake – 1 teaspoon minute gelatin, 2 tablespoons sugar, dash of salt, 1/3 cup water, 2 packages Baker’s German Sweet chocolate 2 egg yolks, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 egg whites stiffly beaten, 1/2 cup cream, whipped, 1 1/2 doz. (36 split) ladyfingers. obviously, let refrigerate after made.

          Here’s the burnt sugar cake – burn 1/3cup sugar in heavy skillet until light brown and melted, add 1 cup cold water to cool,1/2 stick  butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 1/2 teasp. baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla.

          Oh, and I forgot (how the heck could I!!) Chocolate Eclair cake. I’ve made this myself btw – 2 pkgs. French vanilla instant pudding  (I’ve subbed low cal/low sugar instant) 3 cups milk (or low fat), 9 oz cool whip. Layer this mix in several layers with graham crackers. and let sit for some time in a standard brownie pan. Actually, the longer the better as the the pudding seeps into the graham crackers and softens them up so that they become like the shell for eclairs. Yummy!

          These all just taste sooooo good, and done right compare favorably to many (old fashioned) bakery shop delicacies.

      Ooo, French Silk chocolate pie with white chocolate topping and a bowl of vanilla ice cream smothered in chocolate sauce. Finish with a nice brandy and a smooth cigar next to the firepit in the backyard. And yes, girls can have cigars too. My ex and her sister and my current GGbf all had cigars for special events.

      I’ve had elderberry wine, but never seen an elderberry pudding….

      wouldn’t Elderberry Tartlets be a great name for a cheerleader team!!!

      A friend gave me a jar of her homemade elderberry jam. OMG was it delicious.

      Well, I do have a weakness for dessert, so I give you a few of my favs. Like a favourite dress, impossible to choose!

      However, my favourites are made in my kitchen, by me! A few years ago at the request of my picky kids, coming to visit for an important dinner, I made an apple crisp, using a recipe for apple pie, but with an oatmeal, flour and butter topping. It was a big hit! So I’ve made it a few times since.

      Then I love cheesecake, but once again, made by me. I created a raspberry/white chocolate one  a pot luck dinner several years ago. The women who didn’t know me well of course were quite amazed, and some didn’t believe me, till my wife told them it’s true. Now, if I’d shown up as Amy, instead of plain old …., maybe they would have believed me sooner.

      Then something simple like Scotch Shortbread, perhaps done with maple sugar instead of sugar?

      Sorry to sound kind of self centred there, but you asked for my fav, and there are some of mine.

      Amy

      I don’t do much sugary high calorie foods any more. Back when I did I loved pecan pie esp. with a little real whip cream. My grandma’s carrot cake when we visited on Sunday was one of the best part of the day.

      Anything with the word ‘chocolate’ in it. What about a choc sundae, choc ice cream, chunks of choc brownie, skooshy cream and chocolate sauce. And a long spoon, and a lot of time, I like to savour my dessert.

      One of the very nicest things about dessert time is coffee and cognac! However, before that stage what about my last dessert made for a dinner party?
      Homemade brioche ‘slider’ buns warm, split open with a flick of butter, broken waffle cones inside, big scoops of vanilla ice cream, lightly grilled but crispy pancetta laid over the ice cream and a scoop of rhubarb and berry jam to crown!

      Voilà Polly 🍨🍷☕️

        Are you for real?  A top example of NZ cuisine?   A bacon butty with ice cream and rhubarb?  Is this a NZ cream tea?

        A bacon butty with rhubarb (without the other stuff) … interesting!   I might try that.

        Recipe swap – I give you a fried sardine and peanut butter sandwich. Liberally fill your butty with mashed sardines and peanut butter, dip in beaten egg and pan-fry until golden.  Absolutely delish.  (got it from an American cookbook, so don’t blame England or Scotland.)

        I can also recommend raw onion and strawberry jam butties. Sweet and crunchy.

      Oh my goodness Grace, I know this is a fantasy and no calories are involved but just reading all the responses and now thinking of my favourites are making my mouth water.

      Of all my friends and family, I definitely have the sweetest tooth.  Pretty much anything with chocolate, caramel, and nuts will satisfy my dessert cravings.  I’m very fond of pecan pie covered in whipped cream with a chocolate sauce poured over top.  And then there is “turtles” cake with “turtles” ice cream, oh my.  Oh and I have a great fondness for baklava when we go to our favourite Greek restaurant.  Did I forget to mention cheescake?  Especially with a chocolate or caramel sauce; might as well put both sauces on top!!

      So now you know why, even in my mid to late sixties, I have to keep exercising as much as I do.

      Stay healthy (I do try), stay safe, Huge Hugs, Krista.

        That all sounds scrummy…

        I wonder if the Baklava is a Greek version of Py’s famous Scottish Balaclava????

          Gosh, I don’t know Grace, in Canada, a balaclava is a wooly face mask we wear when it is minus 30 degrees.

          So I did a google search for Py’s Scottish balaclava and then Py’s Scottish baklava with no luck for either.  But if it is made of filo pastry, chopped nuts and super sweet syrup, then you got it.  Very tasty.  Hugs, Krista.

      Oh yes… a pudding – lovely word that .. say it slow and savour it ……. pudding… pud-ding.

      A capital way of  snapping the string you tied round your belly at the start of the meal, as a reminder to stop eating.  So it needs to be heavy and filling.

      I offer up a Drowned(boiled) Baby!- a sweet suet pudding, white and glistening  – a massive version of a Spotted Dog or  Spotted Dick.  Or try  a Plum Duff ,  or perhaps a Treacle Dowdy or Treacle Tart, or a Frumenty, or maybe a Figgy Hobbin,  or a Sussex Pond pudding.  Maybe even a massive slice of Bread Pudding.

      Smothered, of course, with lashings of proper bright yellow gloopy custard. It needs to be thick enough so that if you drop the bowl onto the table the tsunami fountain hits the ceiling, before decorating the diners with deliciousness.  (It happened to me once at school)

      And to follow?  Of course ..  no other choice ….. A wafer-thin after-dinner mint. 💥

      bloated, Steph xx

        As an American who eats dessert after dinner (one type of which might be a cup of pudding of the chocolate, vanilla, butterscotch, etc. variety ), I don’t have the foggiest idea what a Plum Duff is or for that matter any of the other ones.

        But I am laughing hysterically at these florid descriptors and plan to Google all of them when I have a spare hour or two on my hands.  Unless one of you Brits care to provide a glossary.

        One word I do absolutely love is “lashings” – just brilliant and I will do my best to incorporate it into my vocabulary going forward.

        I love my custard served by the ” dollop”…not poured….

        another great word, to be said slowly….dollop!!…

        I hate runny custard….but that’s just my opinion xx

          Grace,

          Dollop …. is one of  THOSE words …. and not a word to be used lightly!  I have hear it used to describe….. well, never mind …..

          Words you can roll your tongue around, s-l-o-w-l-y  and sound silly when you do.

          In a similar vein we have stocking-tops, and Oooer!  Bottom,  or even shoe.  Not to mention Wankel rotary engine!  or Panties.

      I am probably in the minority here, but i don’t have a sweet tooth.  I do enjoy a nibble of sweets here and there, but overall not a sweet foods type of person.

      However, if indulging and calories don’t count, a big huge a bag of Doritos !!  Next in line cheezies.  Then ketchup flavoured chips.  I can eat a family sized bag of doritos no problem, I just love the saltiness of the yummy flavoured triangle shaped chips.

      If I had to pick one dessert, it would be as simple as it comes, jello – strawberry, orange, lemon, I really don’t have a favourite flavour of jello either.

      Wicked sweet tooth here.  Love them all so it would take too long to list them.  Blue Bell (local brand) homemade vanilla ice cream combined with a handful of almonds or walnuts is a particular favorite.  Ultimate favorite is Tres Leches cake, served really cold.  Why eat your cake and milk/cream separately when you can combine them in one sweet, moist, spongy slice of heaven? Dammit Grace, I gained 2 pounds just by writing this.

          Haha.  I very much like the way you think Andi!  So , 5 chocolate bars – or even better, 5 chocolate donuts 🍩🍩🍩🍩🍩 should meet my daily veggie requirement 😅.

            Cacao has been shown to have tremendous health benefits.  So by extension, it is safe to say that any form of chocolate is good for you, and the more chocolate the better.  So double chocolate brownies are better than single chocolate brownies, and chocolate cake with multiple layers of chocolate filling and a thick coating of chocolate icing is better than a single layer.

            Oh, and donuts, must not forget those donuts, Stevie.  Chocolate ones with gobsmackingly enormous lashings of chocolate frosting are nothing short of a genuine super food.  That bears repeating: chocolate is a SUPER FOOD!

            May that thought provide some comfort, should you ever find yourself being rushed to the hospital in a diabetic coma.

      Grace, its 5:30 in the morning and you have me thinking desserts!!  I Love Desserts!   Where to start??  Of course a cherry cheese cake like mom used to make – the baked type, not that crappy North American style!  Yes Eva, carrot cake too!  Then we can have some warmed apple crumble with French vanilla ice cream.   Finish it all off with a sherry trifle (heavy on the sherry).

      Rinse, burp, and repeat as necessary.

      Permission to gain a bit of weight??? 😁

        Easy there! Cheesecake is my favorite too, and I make my own. They’re baked, too, I remember baking it the last time I made one, lol! If you wanted to make a valid disparaging remark, point out that we have no access to decent dairy compared to the UK. But cheesecake? No, I won’t have it. My cheesecake is better than nearly any I’ve ever had. Flavor? Well, I like a plain with strawberry or caramel topping, but I also make a good white chocolate with raspberries, a pumpkin cheesecake, oreo, and a lovely dulce de leches.

        Thank you very much!

      Since you basically just described my diet, I would have to say- anything and everything that has a lot of sugar in it.  My diet is that of a five year old that has been left to fend for herself in a candy store.

      Hey Grace

      What a fabulous question!

      Whenever I am in a restaurant, I go straight to the dessert menu, because this girl has priorities! My go to will always be apple crumble infused with cinnamon and a large jug of hot piping custard.

      It’s ten to nine now and I’m hungry!

      Have a great day 😘

      Grace, there are far too many to choose from… 🙂

      Trifle, apple or cherry pie/crumble and custard, cheesecake, key lime pie, bread and butter pudding with custard, bakewell with custard.

      Myst stop now before I start drooling and it’s only 8 in the morning! *giggles*

      Love Rachel

      The mention of dessert brings me out into full Homer mode – not a pretty sight! In terms of what to have… chocolate cheesecake, key lime pie, sticky toffee pudding, apple pie…

      Can I just have three desserts and no starter or main?
