What is your most popular homemade birthday dessert?
I have a B'day coming up and although it sounds a little weird, I need some help in deciding what to make for a birthday dessert. Nothing in my usual list of goodies sounds particularly exciting.
What is your go to homemade birthday dessert that always gets raves? There is one condition: Please no desserts made with cake mix! Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
I had my birthday last week....and it's been a birthday orgy for the last two weeks. Between friends and family I've enjoyed:
A coconut cake
A cherry clafouti
Mixed berry pocket pies
A peach and blackberry pie
Peach sorbet with blackberry sauce
a rhubarb upside down cake
a rhubarb fool(both these rhubarb items were actually served at one dinner, the hostess was ambitious)
root beer cake(this was actually at a restaurant and not homemade, still interesting)
They were all delicious but I've spent a lot of time in the gym trying to work all that off! LOL
They also all held up a candle well, even the pocket pie. :)
Is this for you or are you making for someone else?
Recently I made a basic jelly roll, filled it with lemon curd, dusted with powdered sugar, served with blueberry sauce on the side. It was for a lemon/blueberry fanatic, and she totally got it.
Would you consider something frozen? In warm weather, an unusual ice cream bombe might be fun. Personally, I would serve a selection of ice cream sandwiches without hesitation.
Chocolate cake with cocoa powder and hot water, from a long-ago recipe on the back of a hersey's cocoa tin.
Made in an angel food tube pan, dusted with powdered sugar in lieu of icing, and served with chocolate or vanilla ice cream.
