Do you have a major sweet tooth?

But are you lacking the patience it requires to make desserts sometimes?

Well, if you answered yes to either (or both!) of those statements, then we have a lot in common because I love desserts, but I often dislike how complicated some dessert recipes are.

I mean, let’s be real for a second. When you have a craving for something sweet you don’t want to wait to 3 hours before you can indulge. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Well, according to my research, I’m not. If I was there wouldn’t be the need for so many easy dessert recipes flooding the internet. Which brings us back to this post. I’m going to share with you some of the internet’s most delicious and easy dessert recipes.

Are you ready? Great! Let’s get moving…

Boerenjongens: Spiced Brandied Raisins

Brandy has long been used to preserve both fruit and wine by the Dutch. In fact, the word brandy comes from the Dutch word brandewijn (burnt wine). It should be no surprise that brandied fruits remain quite popular and these tasty little treats are both fun and easy to make.

You could go with brandied apricots, known as Boerenmeisjes, or you try Boerenjongens (brandied raisins). For the latter, you will use sultana raisins and season them with honey, lemon zest, vanilla, cinnamon, and clove. Add your favorite brandy and reduce it down. In minutes, you have delicious Boerenjongens to share with everyone you know.

21 Fantastic Baileys Dessert Recipes that will Make You Drool

Instead of the old standby desserts, apple pie and brownies, why not try Baileys dessert recipes to wow your guest? With Irish cream, hints of chocolate and the distinctive taste of Irish whiskey, this old favorite can help you create some new recipes that your friends will devour.

21 Ways You can Combine Whiskey and Dessert

The creamy smooth taste makes a decadent mousse filling for puff pastries, or a beautiful buttercream icing for cakes. The silky texture will help you to trump any truffle you’ve ever created. Have a simple Bailey’s pudding layered with whipped cream and crushed Oreo’s or bring out the big guns with a Baileys molten lava cake.

The Irish cream whiskey is also delicious in baked goods like chocolate cake or brownies. Cookies love the hints of chocolate, too! Cheesecakes and chocolate trifles will cause you to commit decadence overload.

There are plenty of ways besides baked goods to create Baileys desserts for your family and friends. Creme brulee, fudge and fudge sauce recipes will give you a name among the neighbors. You will be marked for dessert for the potlucks and family dinners. Macaroons, souffles, cheesecake balls and even French toasts are just a few of the ways you can use Baileys to make life delicious.

Baileys dessert ideas are plentiful in cookbooks and of course online. Check out some of the best desserts you can make out of this tasty Irish liquor!

Gluten-free hazelnut cake

This is a delight your dinner guests will love. The crunch of hazelnuts combines really well with the moistness of the cake. Seconds may be very popular with this dessert in the house!


  • 1 cup raw hazelnuts or 1 cup hazelnut flour
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt or whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted in an ungreased pan until lightly browned
  • 3 tablespoons agave syrup or honey


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and butter a 10-inch cake pan. Grind hazelnuts in nut grinder or food processor until mealy in consistency and set aside. Disregard this step if using hazelnut meal.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, mix gluten-free flour with baking soda and baking powder and set aside. In a standup mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter with sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time and then add vanilla extract, yogurt, brandy and hazelnut flour. Add flour mixture to the butter mixture and blend only enough to make a thick batter. It should retain some lumps.
  3. Sprinkle batter with toasted hazelnuts and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake springs back when touched on top. Cool in pan on a wire rack. Drizzle the top of cake with agave or honey.
