The starch in corn acts as a natural thickener for this dessert and adds an extra sweetness. The caramelized sugar crust and fruit garnish make for a lovely presentation.—Maryanne Jensen-Gowan, Pelham, New Hampshire
Inspired by classic cream puffs, this recipe is a wonderful treat. I've served it at Cub Scout banquets, birthday parties and holidays. I'm a regular baker, and this dessert is one of my all-time favorites.
This angel food cake has a completely different texture than the ones made from a mix. A good time to make it is in spring or early summer, when the chickens are laying and there are plenty of eggs. But my family enjoys it anytime, just plain or topped with berries and whipped cream.
My sister gave me the recipe for this delicious bread pudding that's dotted with raisins. It's a big hit with everyone who's tried it. A homemade vanilla sauce goes together quickly on the stovetop and is yummy drizzled over warm servings of this old-fashioned-tasting treat. —Sherry Nice
I've been serving this simple but elegant dessert for many years, after a friend shared the recipe, I especially enjoy baking yummy desserts. I guess it's in the genes--my grandfather came over from Norway and started a bakery in a small Minnesota town.
The custard-like ice cream is so rich and creamy that it tastes like you fussed for hours. But it's easy to make...and pretty, too. I like to serve it with chocolate fudge sauce. -Irene Yoder
