What Are Your 3 Favorite Desserts?

Marian Burros Plum Torte
Peach Cobbler
Strawberry Summer Cake

I make them all gluten-free for a group that includes some gluten sensitive folks.


This looks right up my alley. I would adjust the sugar and top with Greek yogurt. Thanks, @shrinkrap.

Yes definitely that also delicious, Now i am craving for it:yum:

That’s as good a recipe as any. It’s something we make a number of times each year, including an autumn version. It is, indeed, a British classic for summer - ranking up there with Eton Mess. It didnt make my “Top 3” but it would make my “Top 5”.

We’ve never lined the bowl with clingfilm and so long as you weight down the assembled pudding with a saucer and a couple of tins overnight, we’ve never had an issue unmoulding it.

As indicated, a mix of berries is needed - strawberry, raspberry and blackberry are fine. I think it really needs the currants to add a bit of tartness to what could otherwise be something overly sweet. You’ll have liquid leftover. Keep this till you eat it - you may need a little moistening if the bread hant fully soaked through.

Our autumn version would usually omit the strawberries,as they’ll have gone out of season, but probably include chopped plums.

Just needs some cream pouring over.

Speaking of summer puddings and the like, I really love Nigella Lawson’s book, Forever Summer. It has a lot of great summer dessert recipes, as well as light, summery type meal ideas. It’s a fairly old book by now, but love her writing and approach to food. Now that I’ve lost kitchen privileges, I better get the book out and bookmark some recipes for H to cook. Have a pretty tough life these days. Ok, time to file my nails now. Joking. :upside_down_face:


@Harters - Thanks for the validation. I get nervous when I wade into recipes that aren’t from my actual background (Eastern European Jewish)!

chocolate lava cake, lemon tart and panna cotta

Willie’s Crisp, recipe available from google, is so delicious with summer fruits. So easy, just follow the directions. I like it with sliced nectarines, blackberries, blueberries.
