Creme caramel

Crème caramel is that spoon dessert that you have to prepare at least once in your life because it is a classic and also quite easy to make. To do this, a few simple ingredients are enough so it will cost very little but you will make a great impression with your guests!
It can be made with a classic mold, or in single portions.
Watch out for cooking because if it is not compact enough it breaks.


Pavlova is one of the most elegant desserts there is.
White and frothy as snow and sugary as only meringues can be, in fact it is made only with egg whites and sugar.
The nice thing about this dessert is that you can then enrich it with whipped cream or custard and lots of colorful fruit to turn it into a true work of art.

Stuffed apples

Stuffed and baked apples are the unexpected dessert: a treat at the end of a meal, to be enjoyed warm and with a creamy accompaniment based on ice cream, cream or cream.
What to fill the apples with?
You can indulge yourself with dried fruit such as chopped hazelnuts and almonds, or raisins and pine nuts, or dried figs and chopped dates.
For a very tasty variant, use crumbled biscuits: the best are the Amaretti biscuits.
To empty the inside of the apple, use a core remover and dig it out well to remove all the seeds.
Once filled, sprinkle with orange juice, sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon and bake at 180 degrees for 25 minutes, or until the apples are soft.

Homemade ice cream

We call it easy ice cream for two emotional people: it is prepared with two ingredients and without an ice cream maker.
The ingredients are condensed milk and fresh (whipped) cream in equal quantities.
Once everything is mixed with an electric whisk, place the ice cream in a container and leave it in the freezer for about three hours.
To make it softer, add an alcoholic part such as a cup of rum or whiskey cream.
You can also enrich it with crumbled biscuits, chocolate chips or spreads.
It is an excellent accompaniment to cooked apples, strudel or pandoro and panettone at Christmas.

Fruit galette

The galette is a very easy tart, filled with fresh fruit, which is prepared with a base of shortcrust pastry which does not have to be perfect, on the contrary … this cake is beautiful in its imperfection!
Not regular in the edges and rustic in its way, the fruit galette is the dessert that everyone can prepare without difficulty and in a few minutes.
It's cheap, it's delicious and perfect for any occasion!

Yes, that's right, most recipes for making cakes, cookies, and desserts involve eggs. And do you know why? Eggs have a very important function in doughs, they act both as a natural binder and as a leavening agent but, as we will see in this article, they are not strictly necessary for the success of a dessert.

How to replace eggs in a recipe
With potato starch or corn starch:
a whole egg can be easily replaced with 2 tablespoons of starch or cornstarch. Both flours are thickeners, therefore perfect for performing the same function as eggs. A tip: when you go to replace eggs with starch or corn starch, remember to slightly increase the doses of the liquid part in order to obtain a balanced and soft dough at the right point!

With bananas:
half a ripe and soft mashed banana can be used as an egg substitute. It also acts as a binder and helps the dough to remain soft. A tip: if you replace eggs with bananas make sure you use less sugar.

With milk:
50 ml of both cow and vegetable milk (soy drinks, coconut, almonds, oats, …) are equivalent to one egg.

With yogurt:
half a pot of yogurt is the perfect substitute for a whole egg. Yogurt makes the dough soft, moist and fluffy. Which one to choose? What you prefer, even fruit or coffee flavored, a vegan soy or coconut yogurt.
