3 emergency desserts that are a piece of cake to make
We've got you covered with a seven-minute bake, a microwave-bake and a no-bake dessert.
It’s late at night and you’ve got your popcorn, ready to settle into a brand new series on Netflix, but you can’t quite shake the puzzling feeling that something is missing. Maybe there’s something more, something greater, you’re longing for. Perhaps it’s an existential crisis presenting itself at the most inopportune time. But, chances are – nine times out of ten – it’s just chocolate.
Sometimes you just need a good emergency dessert – so for when you’re in a baking bind, have a few last-minute guests coming over, or you’re just really, really craving something sweet, we’ve got the three desserts you can be enjoying in under ten minutes.
This yoghurt pudding bakes (and even tastes) like a cheesecake – without all that water-bath fuss! Baked in just seven minutes, it’s ideal for when you have guests coming over and need to whip up something impressive in a snap. Let these individual puddings cool a bit then serve them with fresh berries – you won’t be disappointed!
A spin on the usual mug cake, this microwave cake is light and fluffy with warm chai notes; perfect for a night in. With a one-minute and 15-second microwave bake time, it’s perfect for those nights when you’re lazing on the couch craving something sweet.
