You are expecting guests at home and there is hardly anything in your kitchen to prepare a dessert? Well, believe it or not, desserts can be simple and prepared with minimum ingredients that are not difficult to find. Just knowing how to go about it can make your task easier. Here are some quick dessert recipes that can be prepared in a jiffy.

Nutella Cake

If you have kids at home, you are sure to have Nutella spread, as they enjoy it with bread. Treat them to a delicious variety of brownie cake with just Nutella and eggs. Yes, you read it right. This cake requires just 4 eggs and the succulent chocolate hazelnut Nutella spread. You need to stir the eggs and Nutella separately; the latter needs to be heated in order to get a smooth paste. Then, mix the two in parts gradually before putting them into the oven. Your mouth-watering Nutella cake will be ready in minutes.

Chocolate Ice Cream

With some chocolate flavour syrup, cream, coffee and milk you can make a delectable chocolate ice cream. Get an ice cream mould, mix the ingredients together and refrigerate. You can add chocolate chips for a pure ice cream parlour.

Chocolate Mousse

A delightful homemade mousse prepared using whipped cream, sugar, raspberries, egg yolks, vanilla extract and chocolate chips heated to melt, this is an easy recipe that can be made in a few minutes. First, heat the whipped cream and then mix the ingredients to form a smooth paste, then refrigerate until it is ready to serve.

Fruit Custard

Vanilla custard made with milk and some sugar according to your taste is something that evokes a sense of nostalgia. If you can thicken the milk by boiling it for some time, it is even better as it enhances the taste and texture of the custard. Once made, refrigerate and serve with fresh fruits as topping for a delightful dessert, especially made for the hot summer months.

Rice Pudding

Rice kheer is a hot favourite for every special occasion in a Bengali household. It is simple and quick as well with home ingredients for which you do not even need to run to the grocery store. Milk, rice (if you have ambemohar or what you call Gobindo Bhog in Bengali rice, it’s even better), patali gur or date palm jaggery, if available in place of sugar, are all you need for making this delicious dish from Bengal.

Meals without desserts are incomplete, and whether you have guests at home or you are gearing up for a family lunch together, these recipes will ensure that you have a memorable experience.
