With only a few days left, I thought it will be a good idea to make a list of last minute desserts for Christmas. I’ve made a list of recipes I would love to make again this Christmas. I can’t do all of them as it would mean too much food, but I always have a big list I’m thinking of when it comes to special days.
I picked 6 recipes, all delicious. In these last minute desserts for Christmas, I chose some that are very easy to make, one that is a traditional dessert in Romania, one that is traditional in UK, and others that are rich and luxurious.
Vegan Mulled Wine Cupcakes
This is a recipe I made this year, for advent. I liked it so much, it’s moist and has a lovely flavour. I think it’s special and would make a beautiful dessert. Especially if you have a vegan guest, you can make cupcakes like these in less than 30 minutes with ingredients you have in your cupboards. Recipe for Vegan Mulled Wine Cupcakes.
Peanut butter biscuits
Biscuits are an obvious choice when it comes to Christmas. My mother always made biscuits when I was a child, using all sort of cutters and beautifully decorating the biscuits. If you don’t have time to decorate them, then just leave them as they are, they will be just as popular. Recipe for Peanut butter biscuits.
Hazelnut dark chocolate tart
This is a rich and luxurious dessert. A dark chocolate tart is so great. It would make a great finale to the Christmas meal. I didn’t plan to make it before, but I might make a few small individual tarts. Recipe for Hazelnut dark chocolate tart.
Victorian fruit cake
What can be more traditional for Christmas than a dried fruit cake? I make Christmas cake every year and I love it. I always make some changes to the recipe. I will share the recipe I’m doing this Christmas next year. Recipe for Victorian fruit cake.
Another traditional recipe for Christmas is Cozonac. It’s a Romanian sweet loaf similar to the Polish babka. It’s usually filled with walnuts and pieces of Turkish delight. Recipe for Cozonac.
Cookies and cream cake
Last recipe is Oreo cookies and cream cake. I made it a few years ago, and I loved it. I think it’s a lovely easy cake to make and festive enough to have it on the table for the Christmas dinner.
I hope I’ve inspired you to try something new this Christmas.
