Do you have a favorite no bake dessert recipe you would like to share?

Asked by Aethelwine (42961points) June 18th, 2010

It is getting hot and humid in the Midwest. Do you have any recipes that provide the sweet without the heat?

I love granita de mango: puree the flesh of 2 mangoes and strain through a fine sieve to get rid of the fibers. Simple syrup (sugar and water heated until clear) and lemon to taste, Cointreau or Triple Sec to taste, then into the freezer in a flat, wide container, break up crystals with a fork every 15 minutes until frozen to a granita consistency.

You can also make granita de cafe with strong espresso and simple syrup.

Take very ripe (overripe is perfect) bananas…peel, slice and freeze in a flat single layer.

Once solidly frozen add them to a blender or food processor.

Puree on high until smooth.


You can add things like honey, peanut butter, a dash of vanilla extract or chocolate syrup if you want more than one flavor.

Ok, it’s a microwave chocoate cake thingy, but don’t go EW until you’ve tried it, seriously! It’s really good…

Here goes:
It’s only a single serving, or at most 2 servings.

4 tbsp flour
4 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil

Mix in a microwavable bowl and microwave on max power for 3 mins.

Ok, while i was looking for the microwave cake recipe, i found something else really sweet too, so here goes:

100ml/g butter
50ml milk
5 ml vanilla essence
500g/1 litre icing sugar (that really fine powdered sugar)
2 ml salt
125ml cocoa

1. Microwave butter, milk and vanilla for 2 minutes
2. Add icing sugar, salt and cocoa to butter and microwave for 2 mins
3. Pour into a buttered dish and refrigerate until cool enough to cut.

This is uber sweet and even more yummy. :)
