Sweet Treats to Make for Mom!
Mother’s Day is on Sunday- are you ready? Instead of doing the traditional Mother’s Day brunch or dinner, I think I’m going to bake my mother an indulgent treat this year. I want to really spoil her! That’s why I picked out some super tasty dessert recipes to possibly try out on Sunday! Check them out (plus pictures!) after the jump.
I decided to choose fruity desserts, as my mom loves ‘em and they have springy/summery feel to them. Here are some I’m considering:
Chocolate Raspberry Avalanche Cake: An avalanche of raspberries and an avalanche of flavor! This beautiful, rich cake will impress any partygoers and satisfy any sweet tooth.
Fruit Dessert Pizza: This clever dessert is always a great choice for a party or potluck dinner.
Strawberry Vanilla Cheesecake: The following recipe uses fresh strawberries but frozen strawberries work well. We made this cheesecake with graham cracker crumbs; a nut crumb crust and a crust made from crushed vanilla wafers would pair well also. And of course, you can use raspberries, blueberries, peaches, mangoes, or other fruit for the topping. You will need a nine- or ten-inch springform pan for this recipe. The cheesecake pictured was baked and served in a nine-inch glass-base springform pan.
Razzle Dazzle Raspberry Pie: This easy pie bakes up beautifully and tastes even better. It is a great pie to make when you have an abundance of fresh raspberries, or it can be made with frozen whole berries when fresh are not in season. Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to make it even more special.
Choco-Cherry Cheesecake Bars: These are a beautiful delight to look at and indulge in eating.
Ina Garten’s Lemon Yogurt Cake: This cake is so moist it will soon become your favorite! The sweetness is not over-bearing and perfectly balances the tart lemon.
Which one of these desserts do you think your mother would like best?
