Who needs an oven?
Sweet dessert means mixing, baking, cooling and hours of work, right? No! Not when the dessert is bakeless. Faith Durand provides 125 recipes for delicious desserts made without turning on the oven.
Durand says to trust her. Use whole milk and egg yolks which make a pudding feel and taste more luxurious. However, temper the eggs first before placing them to a pan of milk. To do this, stir a cupful of hot milk into the bowl of whipped eggs and cold cream. To avoid the eggy taste, use more egg yolks than egg whites.
Stirred Puddings & Custards
Old-fashioned Hot Fudge Sauce
A true old-fashioned fudge sauce made from bittersweet chocolate and butter. Perfectly glossy and not too sweet, it lasts for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
Panna Cotta & Other Gelled Puddings
Coffee Panna Cotta
Perhaps the perfect dessert if you love the taste of coffee.
Milky Chocolate Panna Cotta
Soft and smooth without being overpowering with milk, chocolate and vanilla.
Real Fruit Jellies
Lemonade Jelly With Basil
Lemon makes a tart, grown-up jelly infused here with basil for a herbal aroma that sets off the summer sweetness.
Icebox Cakes, Pies, Trifles & Cookies
Lemon Cream Icebox Cake
Tender layers of nutty graham cracker, holding up lemon-spiked cream with swirls of intensely tangy lemon curd - this cake's vibrant lemon flavor never fails to delight.
Spicy Peanut And Toasted Coconut Cookies
A tantalizing blend of toasted coconut and peanut butter cream finished with a sharp prickle of cayenne pepper. The author has worked these flavors into a crispy, sticky and spicy cookie, with just a touch of spice.
Lemon Cream Icebox Cake is my absolute favorite! My mother would make lemon cakes with lemon-spiked whipped cream. She must be thinking of me.
I have been reviewing many no-bake cookbooks. This cookbook ranks up there.
