Among all the events celebrated on this planet, undoubtedly, Christmas is the most popular one. It’s one such event, which is waited for throughout the year. Its festivity is enchanting; its flavor is exciting. We see an environment filled with love and colors, which is certainly a joy for all of us around.
Not to mention that such a great event is incomplete without some delicious food. When it comes to Christmas, I think that what make this event so special are not the main dishes, but desserts. After the delicious main dishes, all of us love to have some perfect desserts. These Christmas desserts add a lot more glory to the already enchanting eve.
Most of the people around think that it’s quite hard to prepare these delicious Christmas desserts, but the fact is otherwise. Let’s discover some easy Christmas recipes today, so that you are able to add a lot of flavor to the eve of Christmas.
The first of the lot is fruit trifle, a very popular dessert that is served all over the world. The special thing about this recipe is that it contains some wonderful ingredients such as jelly roll cakes, sherry, raspberries, butter, and chocolate shavings. All these ingredients combine to give it the just perfect which you always crave for. Whipped cream and half-and-half cream make it look creamier, while white sugar is added in the recipe to make it sweet; though you can replace it with honey too. Takes a bit of time to get ready but the taste is certainly worth the wait and effort.
Mango is such a delicious fruit that is served all over the world in a whole lot of ways. Mostly, it is a part of salads and desserts; I have come up with a mango dessert today, mango cheesecake. Though cheesecakes are made with different ingredients but they are great if they feature some fruit as the prime ingredient; and it’s great if the fruit is mango. Mango cheesecake is quite popular all over the world and is considered to be a vital part in most of the birthday parties; lately, it is also being served on the eve of Christmas. Apart from mangoes, biscuits, honey, cream cheese, and cream are such ingredients that make this cake quite delicious. Most cakes are required to be baked but this one is different; you need to freeze the batter. Most of the chefs around the world use alphonso mangoes in the recipe but you can try the mangoes as per your desire. For best taste, do make sure that you use fresh and ripe mangoes. Whole wheat biscuits go great but you try the recipe with any other biscuits too. The tricky part of the recipe is the step where you need to remove the cake from the pan; do use a detachable pan. What if I tell you that you can prepare this cake in less than an hour?
Let’s move towards a pudding recipe now. Christmas pudding recipe is one such recipe where the chefs have made themselves great at after a practice of years. Dates, raisins, orange juice, lemon juice, butter, and cinnamon are the special ingredients that make this pudding a perfect blend of health and taste. To make the pudding quite special, steam technique has been used in the recipe; due to the use of such a technique, the pudding becomes a treat to the taste buds. I would suggest you not to serve it as soon as it is ready but let it stay for some time. This lets the flavor get to the best.
Fruits are great to have on any occasion, but their importance is unprecedented when it comes to the eve of Christmas. Fruit salad is another popular Christmas dessert that combines some wonderful fruits; you should sense something very delicious and healthy; can’t you? I added apple, pineapple, banana, and some other fruits; of course, you can have your own set of fruits too. Cashews add the nutty texture to the salad which makes the salad a perfect option to enjoy. The great thing is that you can prepare this salad in just about half an hour.
Another cheesecake recipe, raspberry cheesecake is always a treat to enjoy at any of the local restaurants. Whenever I used to invite some friends at my home, or my kids used to plan a party at home, I had to purchase it from the local bakery. But since I got this recipe, I bake the cake in my own kitchen. Butter, raspberries, cream cheese, eggs, and white chocolate chips make it taste so amazing that you are always left craving for more. Garnished with chocolate shavings, the cake is often served with raspberry sauce, to give you a perfect dessert experience at the eve of Christmas.
Brown chocolate fudge is quite popular all around the world, but what about white chocolate fudge? Isn’t that a cool variation? The taste is so amazing that I always prefer to make it in the dessert slot of the menu instead of making brown chocolate fudge. White chocolate chips, butter, condensed milk, and cherries give it the just perfect taste, while almond extract adds the characteristic almond taste to the fudge. The great thing is that the recipe is quite simple; even the new chefs can give a great go at it – just takes about an hour or so to get ready.
