Whats your All-time favorite dessert recipe?

Growing up we usually didn't make dessert. if we had dessert, it was ice cream and peaches or chocolate sauce, hence,I have many many recipe's that i love, but not a single good dessert recipe.

What are the best and most used dessert recipes of yours?

  1. I'm not sure if I can name one favorite, but this is one that I love and get raves on every time I make: Strawberry and White Chocolate cheesecake http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/rec... Best during strawberry season, but a really really excellent recipe anytime.

    1. Hot Fudge Sundae Cake--came off the side of a Gold Medal flour package many years ago.

      1 c. flour
      3/4 c. sugar
      2 tbsp. cocoa
      2 tsp. baking powder
      1/4 tsp. salt
      1/2 c. milk
      2 tbsp. oil
      1 tsp. vanilla
      1 c. chopped nuts
      1 c. brown sugar
      1/4 c. cocoa
      1 3/4 c. hot tap water

      In ungreased 9” pan, stir together flour, sugar, 2 tbsp. cocoa, baking powder and salt. Mix in milk, oil, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in nuts and spread evenly in pan.

      Sprinkle with brown sugar and 1/4 c. cocoa. Pour hot water over batter.

      Bake 40 minutes at 350°. Let stand 15 minutes. To serve, place piece of cake in bowl. Top with ice cream, then spoon sauce over ice cream.

      2. White Chocolate Mousse with Dark Chocolate Sauce - very rich.

        Chocolate Chip Cheesecake - time consuming, but well worth it.

        1. Chocolate cupcakes filled with sweetened cream cheese and topped with chocolate or cream cheese frosting.

          Make your favorite choc cake batter.

          Take an 8-oz pkg of cream cheese, beat it w/ 1/2 cup to a cup of white sugar (to taste). Add an egg if you want the filling to have more of a'cheesecake' texture to it. Beat until smooth.

          Fill muffin cups 1/3 of the way w/ batter. Drop a 1-1andahalf tsps of cream cheese mixture in the center (try not to let it get near the edges, you want the cake batter to bake around the filling). Top with cake batter until cup is 2/3 full. Bake as instructed for regular cupcakes, frost with favorite frosting (I recommend chocolate or cream cheese.)

          If you prefer fruity fillings, compose your dollops of half cream cheese mixture and half fruit jam of choice (I recommend raspberry or strawberry). This works better in a white cake, IMO.
