You know when you really fancy something sweet but you’re not much of a baker? Don’t deny a treat just because you don’t have the energy to whip one up. You don’t have to spend ages in a hot kitchen, baking cakes; instead, try these simple yet delicious no-bake desserts. Read on…
No-Bake ‘Fluffy’ Cheesecake
Everyone loves cheesecake, don’t they? Especially when it’s light and fluffy like this one. The great thing about cheesecake is you rarely have to bake it, perfect for those bakers amongst you who always manage to burn their cakes. Give it a go and see how you get on.
Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream Cheesecake Recipe
An ice cream cheesecake, you say? You better believe it! This one from BBC Good Food will have you licking your lips at the very thought of it. To make it, you’ll need 200g honey nut cornflakes, 2 x 400g-jars of chocolate hazelnut spread, a tablespoon of roasted and chopped hazelnuts, and two 180g-tubs full-fat cream cheese.
Birthday Party Mug Cake
Moving on from cheesecake…and onto actual cake, in all its spongy deliciousness. This ‘birthday cake’ one is so easy you can make it in a mug – in your microwave! Did you know, too, that a microwave is by far the cheapest way to cook and eat food? A solution to keep in your back pocket when cooking or baking during the energy crisis.
Taking mere minutes to make and bake, this cake is handy to have in your arsenal in case you want to whip up a last-minute birthday cake for someone special. Don’t forget to convert the US measurements into UK ones – and use whichever butter and egg brand you like (this recipe comes via US brand, Land O’ Lakes).
Chocolate Fridge Loaf
Chocolate + a no-bake recipe = absolutely perfect. This chocolate fridge loaf from Kid Spot is a great choice for any choccy fans – which is most of us really. The kids will love making it too – and it’ll satisfy them during snack time or prove ideal as a post-dinner treat.
Hallowe’en Spiderweb Cheesecake
Okay, so we’re back on the cheesecake again. Sorry, not sorry! Forgive us, though; this one’s a Hallowe’en themed one – and with October 31 not all that far off, you might be glad to know this recipe in case you’re planning a spooky bash for family and friends.
No-Bake Fruit Tart
How about a pudding that incorporates one of your five-a-day? Here it is – this tasty-looking no-bake fruit tart, which serves eight people and takes only 15 minutes to prep. The recipe mentions arrowroot biscuits, but you could try it out with digestives instead. Also containing passionfruit, it’s a deliciously tart recipe everyone will love to tuck into.
