Desserts are everyone’s favourite and much-awaited part of the meal. But how do you choose from such elaborate options like cakes, sweets, puddings, doughnuts, cookies, halwa, mousse, and whatnot? So, to narrow down your options, why don’t you focus only on the desserts starting with “G” today? From gooey chocolate to glazed cakes, there are still a lot of options to choose from.

To make things easier and attempt to try as many varieties of desserts possible, here’s an alphabetic series of dessert options. And as Sheldon Cooper, a beloved character from the Big Band Theory, once said, “What’s life without whimsy?” why don’t you explore these dessert ideas that start with the letter “G?” to make this weekend or at a theme party.

Ganache Cake

Ganache cake is the gooey haven for all chocolate lovers. The moist flavours of dark chocolate mixed with cream and baked to perfection are literally a dessert you want to try when you want to make your life sweeter. If you want to dig into this chocolate world, start by making a simple chocolate cake and let it cool. Simultaneously, heat some heavy cream and add chopped dark chocolate to make ganache. Now cut the cake you just baked into two or three layers and add the ganache to it. Once you stack the layers, cover the top and the sides with a generous layer of ganache. And the ganache cake is ready to melt in your mouth.

Gingerbread Cookies

There’s no point in waiting for a festive season to bake Gingerbread cookies when you can have them right now! To make these nostalgic cookies, whisk the dry ingredients first, like flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Then, gradually add the wet ingredients like butter, eggs, and molasses and keep whisking. Knead them together and then roll out the dough. You can either bake the cookies in circles or in festive shapes. Once baked, let them cool down, and then you get a canvas to decorate with icing, chocolate syrup, sprinkled, and really anything that comes to your imagination.

Gulab Jamun

Gulab Jamun, the go-to dessert at every wedding, had to make it to the lift of desserts starting with “G”. Be it warm gulab jamuns dipped in sugar syrup or chilled ones, they’re the Indian nirvana desserts. 

To make these balls of heaven, you’ll need to mix milk powder, flour, and baking powder and knead it to get the perfect dough. Then, make some balls from the dough,  deep fry them, and let them sit in warm sugar syrup till they absorb it. After waiting for some time, you can either warm them up or gobble them as is.

Greek Yoghurt Parfait

For a rather healthier dessert option, you can make the layered Greek Yoghurt Parfait. For a spoonful of goodness, start by adding Greek yoghurt into a glass as the base layer. Then, add a layer of your favourite fruits like berries, mangoes, pineapple, bananas, etc. Top it off with granola or dry fruits to add some crunchiness. Repeat the same layers and fill your glass. Finally, add a touch of maple syrup or honey, and your guilt-free dessert is ready!


Gajrela is a winter-special traditional dessert of India filled with the goodness of carrots, that is enjoyed in most Indian households. For you to make gajrela, you’d need to grate some carrots and cook them in milk. Once they are tender, add sugar and ghee for a sweet and rich flavour. Next, add some chopped dry fruits like almonds, cashew nuts, and raisins and mix them in the gajrela to add some crunch. You can also save some of the nuts for garnishing. Take a bowl out, and dive right in.

German Chocolate Cake

German Chocolate Cake is a dessert that has stood by the test of time and has been the most loved and comforting dessert for centuries. If you want to get a taste of it, start by whipping the basic ingredients of a chocolate cake like flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and baking powder. Once the dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed, gradually add the mixture of wet ingredients including milk, eggs, and butter. While you set it to bake, start prepping the rich coconut frosting. All you need to do is simmer melted butter, sugar, milk, egg yolks, and chopped pecans and let it thicken. Then spread the frosting on the cake, sprinkle some chopped pecans or chocolate chips and you’re all done!
