If you are planning to host a brunch gathering, don’t forget to add desserts to the menu. They complete the meal. A sweet dish is the final step for the gastronomic heaven you can’t miss, especially in summer, when a few kinds of delights can uplift your mood instantly. Here are a few recommendations you can consider. 

Baked Applesauce Doughnuts

You must have seen videos of how doughnuts are made. They are deep-fried, but you can bake them at home and enjoy a guilt-free session of indulgence. Grease a doughnut pan with oil and keep it aside while you preheat the oven at 175°C. In a bowl, whisk baking powder, flour, baking soda, cinnamon powder, sugar, and a pinch of salt. In another container, combine eggs, oil, vanilla extract, and applesauce. After creating a concoction of wet and dry mixture, fill the moulds with the batter. Bake the doughnuts for 12-15 minutes, and enjoy. 

Peanut Butter Bites

Nothing screams healthy and yummy more than peanut butter bites. You can have these sweets or offer them to your guests for brunch without any worries. In a vessel, mix chocolate chips, oats, salt to taste, and cocoa powder, while the other container should have a lump-free concoction of honey, peanut butter, and vanilla extract. After combining all the ingredients, top the dough-like mixture with crushed nuts. Make small balls with the combination and refrigerate at least for 20 minutes before savouring them.

Lemon Blueberry Scones

If you are looking for a sophisticated dessert to serve for brunch, it has lemon blueberry scones. Citric and fruity notes make this a refreshing delight with a burst of flavours in your mouth. Preheat the oven to 200°C while you make a paste of granulated sugar, flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt, heavy cream, eggs, and vanilla extract. Add lemon zest and blueberries as well while kneading the dough. Add the dough on a baking sheet in small batches and give each a desired shape. After baking for 15-18 minutes, spread butter, and serve them with lemon curd or clotted cream.

Banana Pudding

If you want less hassle while preparing dessert, a pudding is the best option. It is easy to make as well as serve, and it makes less of a mess in the house. Start by adding milk and pudding mix in a bowl. After blending for a couple of minutes, add condensed milk and make a smooth paste. Pour in a few drops of vanilla extract, and the creamy layer is ready. Add a layer of this cream to the pudding cup along with a layer of wafers and banana slices. Top the pudding with crushed wafers and berries. After refrigerating for a couple of hours, serve it cold to your guests.

Black Forest Cookies

Cookies are a great option to serve for brunch after everyone has loaded up on savouries. Start by beating butter and sugar in a large bowl for a minute. Add eggs and vanilla extract and beat again until you achieve soft peaks. In another bowl, combine baking soda, flour, salt, and cocoa powder. Combine the creamy mixture with dry ingredients to make a combination with a dough-like consistency. Add a small amount of this mixture on a baking tray, top each cookie with some chocolate chips and cherries, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Enjoy them with a refreshing drink.
