There are two things that I love to do in the Fall. One is to scroll through thousands of decadent dessert recipes on Pinterest and the second one is to never ever bake them. It’s not that I don’t want to bake these mouthwatering, calorie laden, things of beauty. It’s simply that I can’t. Or at least, I haven’t been successful, yet. Don’t let my failures deter you. I have more hope for you. I’ve chosen five of the most exquisite dessert recipes for Fall and I want you to have a go. Then, I want you to invite me over for dinner.
Please, they had me at bourbon. These cupcakes are so beautiful it would be absolutely essential to have two. In fact, if you’re planning on making these you might want to double up on the recipe. There is just no way they’ll last long enough for you to even get a photo to brag on social media that you actually made them. Seriously, don’t forget about that invite.
Apple cider as a cake? Yes, I think I will. If someone is going to take the time to turn all of the things about Fall into a cake, than I’m going to try it, every single time.
This dreamy cake is made in the slow cooker. You’d think that this might be the one I could actually manage to make. However, past experience has taught me to leave it to those with a little more skill. Too many cups of sweet, sweet sugar have been lost in my kitchen to some baking debacle or another.
I was hesitant at first, to be fair. Sweet potato? and cake? And then I thought to myself, ‘don’t be silly’ it’s cake, so it must be good. Check out the photo. Can you imagine walking into a dinner party with that in your hand. After you convinced the crowd that you did not, in fact, purchase it at the uppity bakery downtown, you could then bask in their grateful astonishment.
Okay, I am the last person to consider fruit a dessert. In fact, I find the thought of it offensive to real desserts. However, when said fruit is covered in puff pastry and caramel, I’ll make an exception. This one looks a little tricky even for a pro like you, so make sure you carve out enough time for it.
What are you doing still reading? You have some major kitchen prep to do if you’re going to make me..I mean your family a sweet treat tonight.
