Easy Homemade Desserts To Consider Serving For Your Guests - Part 1

Cooking is an art. And the thing about art is simple - the more you practice, the better you get at it.

Desserts are notorious for being the toughest course of meals to ace. At times, even the most seasoned chefs fail to get a dessert recipe right. So, the next time you get all haywire while preparing a decadent sweet dish, remember - it happens with the best of us too. Just believe in yourself and start simple.

On that note, if you’re looking for simple dessert recipes to start your sweet journey with, read this blog. Here, we have compiled some easy homemade desserts for you to try, especially when you need something easy and yummy to impress your guests with. Let’s start!

Easy Homemade Desserts For Your Guests - The All-Time Favorites

The wait is over! Here are a few easy homemade desserts you can serve your guests without having to do much:

1. Tiramisu


Whether or not you like sweets, this delicious coffee treat is something you’ll definitely love!

Bursting with hypnotizing flavors of freshly brewed espresso and mild vanilla, Tiramisu is a gorgeous Italian dessert. And like the list says, it’s easy to prepare too. For the ingredients, you’ll only need some basic grocery store items like vanilla cake, mascarpone cheese, eggs, whipped cream, coffee, and chocolate. A classic favorite of all those who don’t prefer their dessert “too sweet”, this simple dessert recipe is a perfect showstopper.

From midnight sugar cravings to birthday parties - no matter how little or big the occasion is, a slice of chocolate never disappoints. But that’s not the only beauty of this dessert. It may take you by surprise, but this divinely tasty sweet treat is actually quite easy to make. In fact, its vegan version is also pretty simple to prepare.

A single chocolate dessert dish is never enough. So, here’s another.

One of the simplest sweets to make at home, Chocolate Fudge is the ultimate quick fix for your dessert scene. Start by mixing together some melted chocolate, butter, milk, and sugar. Now, spread the mix in a casserole and put it inside the freezer to set. And voila, your chocolate fudge is ready even before you know it. In fact, this recipe also openly invites experimenting. Like nuts? Throw in some almonds. Want a zesty aftertaste? Add fruit jam. Really, the only limit is the sky!

4. Strawberry Cheesecake

Show us a person who doesn’t love cheesecakes and we’ll show you a liar.

A little sweet, a little tart, and a lot velvety - chilled strawberry cheesecake served right after the main course is what we call the “perfect” end to a meal. Thanks to just how simple it is to prepare; this dessert is a haven for those who aren’t the best at cooking. Crushed graham crackers, whipped cream cheese, and strawberry compote - layer these ingredients one after the next and there! Your strawberry cheesecake is ready to go inside the freezer and then finally, into your mouth.

5. Banoffee Pie


Bananas are good for breakfast, certainly. But Banoffee pie proves it - they’re better as desserts!

The word “Banoffee” literally breaks down to “banana” and “toffee”. And that’s also the recipe - bananas in caramel sauce. So well, if you don’t have the ingredients to cook a fancy dessert for the guests, pick up the bananas from the table and get started. Mix melted butter with crushed biscuits, prepare toffee sauce and layer them in a casserole. Next in goes a layer of chopped bananas, followed by whipped cream. Put the casserole in the freezer and serve this British delicacy chilled!

Bottom line

Cooking the perfect dessert dish for guests is never an easy task. But with the right recipe, it’s really just “a piece of cake”.

In this blog, we explored some top, easy homemade desserts that you can serve your guests. But if you’re hungry for more, watch out for this space - we have also got a second part coming up in this series!
