Hubpages Cooks: My Favorite Hubpages Recipes, part deux, Desserts!

Collection #2!

As promised in my first collection here is the next set of fantastic recipes. These were published over the past three years. All of these recipes have become family favorites.

Being desserts I had to give you a bakers dozen (13) of links... Hope you will enjoy these as much as my family and friends do. Thank you to all you hubbers for sharing these 'to die for' recipes.

Another great set of recipes that Maddie Ruud has shared here on Hubpages. You just have to check out the Cherry Cobbler. It is simply to die for. Especially if you're a die-hard cherry fan like me. It is one of the easiest desserts to make. I always make sure I have the ingredients at home as I often get company from out of town (the kind that only let me know that they're coming, once they're on the road already). For a change try it by substituting peaches for the cherries.

K@ri 's Flan recipe is easier and faster to make than the one I used for years. I make this flan regularly because I have chicken running around my yard who produce a lot of eggs. It works out super duper if baked in individual sized ramekins. It's a very satisfying dessert. I hate to have to turn on the air conditioner in the house in the summer so as not heating up the house extra, I have tried to make the flan in the toaster oven which I dragged outside on the deck. It worked like a charm, perfect as perfect can be.

You'll be happy with this recipe too I'm positive you can find it right here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Best-Flan-Recipe-Ever-Guaranteed

Whitney05 Lemon sherbet is one of the best summer desserts that everyone absolutely loves. This recipe is so refreshing and light. It finishes off any meal to perfection. There is also another great use for this lemon sherbet... as a palette cleanser. Serve one small scoop in between the courses if you're having a multi course dinner party. It helps clean the taste buds, especially when going from a spicy appetizer to a milder main course. I was on a wine tasting tour last fall and the winery served us a tiny spoon full of lemon sherbet in between the wines too.

The lemon sherbet recipe is the first one on the page along under lime sherbet here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Homemade-Sherbet-Recipes

The reason I added blackbv 's great Crepe recipe is even though it's very much like, actually almost identical, to the crepes that my Granma, my Mom and I have been making forever with the exception that our recipe calls for full milk + 1/4 cup of cream. Crepes used to be my favorite when I was a kid and it just never occurred to me to use skim milk instead. It really makes sense to make the crepes less "calorie plenty". The taste is really just as good with the skim milk. Ha-ha-ha that leaves more room for all the added goodies... The fillings for crepe are as limited as your imagination. Not only do crepes work great for desserts but can also become a main course by adding savory fillings such as 'shrimp and mushrooms' or 'pulled beef, mushroom and cheese' drizzled with a light brown gravy served with a salad. Now that makes me hungry... yum

This great and super easy crepe recipe can be found here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Simple-German-Crepe-Recipe

stephhicks68 's comfort food at its very best in this Amaretto bread pudding recipe. Who wants to eat a plain version when you can have it with Amaretto. For a church function a couple of months ago and I was requested to make bread pudding. I made a regular bread pudding and one with Amaretto... guess what, wonder of wonders the Amaretto one went first... and every one raved about it.

So from now on this is the recipe of choice for me ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Amaretto-Bread-Pudding

I love this easy cream puff recipe, it's so quick and easy by girly_girl09 . Since I found this recipe I have only made my own once as mine is more time consuming. I love it with a cooked custard filling the best. I made this a couple of times for the pot-luck and everyone raved about how good they were. They all thought I spent hours and hours baking. (I'm bad, as I didn't tell anyone how fast these are to make.)

The pistachio pie crust in this following recipe is to die for by  Live N Learn . (Coconut Avocado Lime Pie with Pistachio Crust) I have made this pie crust for 5 different types of pies and it is perfect for all. 1) Strawberry cheesecake, 2) cherry cheese cake 3) lemon meringue pie, 4) coconut orange sherbet cake and 5) just last weekend I used the crust for a large blackberry cheese 'birthday' cake for 30 people. My friend who just turned 75 absolutely loved it... (she is the cheese cake queen around my neck of the woods) She has never used a pistachio crust before but she will from now on, she said, as it somehow blend together to perfection.

My son-in-law really loves these banana-pan-cakes by  MM Del Rosario most of the times when we get together the meals revolve around what my granddaughters like so I make a point to make these pancakes for him, especially on his birthday and for fathers day.

Try them by using this great recipe ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/banana-pan-cake

I grow my own pumpkin in my garden and I always have way too many. So as not to waste anything that comes from the garden I'm always hunting for new recipes to make with the only squash that I like. This Profound Pumpkin Pudding by Stacie Naczelnik  is one of those recipes that I added to my faves the minute I had tried it for the first time. I make it with cranberries and as I'm a nut lover I also add either walnuts or pecans to the top of the pudding.

When pumpkin season starts (fall) check out the recipe here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Pumpkin-Recipes-Easy-Yummy

Well, I guess I'll just leave the title alone and just say that marisuewrites 's Almost better than sex pudding is really a great dessert. I have made it as a pie with the pistachio crust and replace half the pecans in the recipe with pistachios. It was so very yummmmmmmy that the recipe was also added to my clans favorites and it definitely is worth every minute of time spent making it.

----------unfortunately Marisuewrites has removed her recipe hub-----------

The poor fruit cake gets a bum-wrap from most people, I'm the exception because I absolutely love fruitcake. In my family I'm the only one so it's always good to know that if I make some for Christmas I will have it all to myself to eat (buahahaha). I have tried many recipes and this one by   rmcrayne  is really the easiest and best one to make. Thinking about it made me want a piece right now... guess what, I just happen to have a piece left in the freezer, with other words it freezes really well. I slice it and then put a couple of them into a ziplock baggy and then I put the baggies into a large plastic tub.... this keeps the fruitcake 8 - 10 months with out freezer burn etc.

try it you might like it using this great recipe ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Fruitcake-and-Christmas-Cookie-Recipes

There is not much that I need to say about this next recipe. The home made whipped cream by Melissa Ray Davis  is just what you need on top of a plain old apple or fruit pie, on top of a pudding, a cake, sliced up fruit or just regular ice cream. I'm sure you will agree with me when you try the Rum or Bourbon whipped cream or the mint infused one... delicious

check out the methodology here ===> http://hubpages.com/hub/Extraordinary_Homemade_Whipped_Cream_Recipe

There you have it for now folks... hope you get a chance to try some of these recipes that have joined the list of favorites for my gang. I'm sitting here in front of the computer drooling and other than a piece of fruitcake that I just dug up from the freezer it's time to make some of these again just for 'fun'........

Hiya Steph, sorry I thought I had sent you an email about adding your recipe. I hope you do not mind. My 'puter seems to have a mind of it's own at times, mind you I'm guilty in not checking if the email actually did get sent.

I shared your recipe with an old friend who is here visiting from CA. I think we will make the bread pudding along with a few more of the desserts on the weekend as I expect the rest of the old gang to come too for a few days.

Hope you're well

kindest regards Zsuzsy

Killrats, what can I say I love to share (hahaha) Let me know which one you're going to try to how you liked it. I just put a double batch of the lemon sherbet into the freezer, which should help in this heat wave that still seems to hang over us, here in southern Ontario.

hope you're well

Please make it rain... then maybe it will cool down a bit here. We've been in this stinkin' heatwave for the past three+ weeks already.

Now for this 'bestest ever' cheesecake... when will it be ready?


Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

OK But on your head be it...if it starts raining over there in the next couple of hours it won't be my fault !

Of course you do realise I may have to retailiate to your Hub with my favourite "Bestest Ever " New York Cheesecake recipe ?

Zsuzsy Bee 6 years ago from Ontario/Canada Author

Tsk tsk Merlin you just have to sing while your prepping... but it will only work if you dance a little too though... a little shuffle with the feet, is well worth it when you can look forward to a cherry cheese cake with a pistachio crumb crust... yum


Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Oh Zsuzsy... I must confess I hate dancing ...besides every time I dance it rains, but I take all suggestions to make me a happier me very seriously.

But how do I sing and eat at the same time ?


Zsuzsy Bee profile image

Zsuzsy Bee 6 years ago from Ontario/Canada Author

Merlin, can I tell you a secret? A Shaman told me some years ago that if I sing and dance while I prepare desserts I would not gain any more weight... I'm still testing out that prediction. So now when I'm just entering the kitchen I start to sing at the top of my voice and to breakdance... I break a cup, a bowl or two regularly. It hasn't done much for the diets but it has made for a happier me and has cleared out some clutter out of the cupboards.

Will you let me know if it works for you?


Merlin Fraser profile image

Merlin Fraser 6 years ago from Cotswold Hills

Gee Thanks Zsuzsy....There goes my diet plans...again!

It's summer how am I supposed to get into my Speedo's with Hubs like this ?
