Hi Ladies,
We're going to my brother's for Christmas Eve dinner tomorrow and we've been asked to bring dessert. I'm absolutely stuck on what to bring, does anyone have any ideas?
I'm a reasonable cook (though my oven is pretty crap). I'm terrible with pastry (so that's out), and it will need to feed 8-10 people. Sorry, not sure what they're doing for dinner in case anyone wondered. Does any one know any recipes that are not too complicated and don't need doing overnight?
TIA!! original.gif

Buy a pav and loads of beautiflu berries.

You could try a cheesecake that doesnt need cooking?

I did pavlova for our christmas do yesterday, it was a hit. Stuck whipped cream and a mix of fresh berries all over it(even got some red currants!) with some passion fruit as well.

Google one of those trifles you just construct with jam rolls, chopped jelly etc. Pop it in a big glass bowl, they look flashy & impressive!

I'm doing dessert for Christmas day.  I plan to cheat and buy a huge stack of profiteroles, and serve them with a selection of lovingly made sauces.  I think three should do....chocolate, cherry, and honey & rosewater are what I have in mind.

If its a nighttime do what about one of those chocolate ripple cakes? Can fancy it up and do the espresso one?

I just made Nigella Lawsons  Here snow flecked brownie recipe today for a pre Christmas lunch, and they were fabulous.

I halved the recipe, because it makes a huge amount, but I'm kind of wishing I hadn't because the guests ate them all, and I'd really like another one right now.

Jelly (eg port wine flavour) with raspberries or blueberries. Serve with cream and icecream.

trifle- but not with jam rolls. I use sponge cake, sherry, custard, red/green jelly and cream on top. So easy and yummy.

Apple Crumble. Easy as, can be assembled then baked at the last minute, and everyone likes it. Use a tin of pie apple and it's really not much work at all.

I have done this ice cre slice several times, and it's always a hit. Made one today actually, for the big day: http://m.coles.com.au/mt/un.recipes.coles....ce-cream-slice/
