Easy Puddings

Hello there BBQ time in three weeks, or so,
does anyone have any easyish pudding recipes that can be made in advance(or at least the day before) I will probably buy some but would also like to make some too, but as we are looking at about 150 or so have to keep it reasonably simple!

Many thanks

Easy Puds

Eton Mess, Chocolate Truffle Torte, (always my fave) and can be frozen. Fresh Fruit Salad. Scones with Cream and Jam. Trifles are OK, but I always think they look a mess once they have been "dug" into a couple of times. Gooseberry fool served with shortbread. Just a few to get you going !

If you can't find the recipes on the site try googling them they sometimes come up quicker doing it that way. especially the Choc Truffle Torte !!

Another easy pud

Just thought of another quickie which is the Kaiserschmarm in the Cheats book. Made with already made pancakes which can be made in advance and then shredded, mixed with icing sugar and cinammon, then placed on top of Cherries, or any other fruit (Pear and Ginger is nice), then put under a hot grill until the top caramelises.....bit different and takes minutes to make.

Lemon Posset is very easy and can be made ahead.

Scones are always a good idea.
Make them whenever you wish as they freeze extremely well.

Easy pudding

Peel and slice a pineapple lengthways, sprinkle with brown sugar and BBQ on both sides. Serve with clotted cream. Quite simply the most delicious summery pudding you will ever taste.

make ahead puds

Apricot (or similar) roulade, can be made ahead & frozen. Thaw then fill with whipped cream and maybe strawberries.

I like the vanilla cream terrine - also Delia's & brilliant with summer fruits - can be made & stored in plastic boxes stacked in fridge until you slice it, well behaved & delicious.

What about buying ready rolled butter puff pastry, cut into oblongs, sprinkle with sugar & cook to caramelise, store in airtight tin, sandwich with fruit & cream or confectioners custard once ready to serve?

Delia's Unlikely Lemon Gateau... this is so easy to do and serves more than the 8 they say. You could make a couple. I'll give you the link to Delia's recipe in case you can't find it on here and you can copy and paste it into your browser.

Easy Puds ~ Impossible Pie

here's another , they don't come much easier than Dolly's Impossible Pie !! And it defies logic, but it does work !
If you are dairy intolerant I would use KoKo coconut milk and Pure butter sub.

Easy Puds for the Masses

I've found baked cheesecake a pretty easy make-in-advance option, then at the last moment scatter with summer berries and lightly dust with icing sugar - it can look pretty impressive.

I have yet to try out a recipe for profiteroles filled with softened ice-cream then frozen, but will give that a whirl soon.

Also, a selection of homemade ice-creams with perhaps some strained fruit coulis and chocolate syrups in squeezy bottles and sprinkles etc for people to scoop into their cones themselves can be quite fun (and the cone saves on washing up!).

Anyway, just a little food for thought.

Honey made a fabulous and very simple dessert last time we visited. I've done it a few times. Greek yoghurt, good quality lemon curd (500 g yog, Finest Tesco size jar Lemon curd). Swirl together so that streaks of curd are still visible and top with raspberries, slightly crushed with a teaspoon of icing sugar.
