There are days when we have no problem going all-in on dessert, rolling up our sleeves and spending hours making a complicated cake or batch of cookies. Then again, sometimes the best desserts are the ones that come together in a flash. These quick desserts are almost like a double gift: you get the sweet without the sweat. A few of the speedy treats we're sharing here will be familiar, but that doesn't mean they're boring. Our chocolate-covered strawberries get a little crunch from chopped pistachios. And if you keep a package of crispy, elegant waffle cookies around to pair with either ice cream and lemon curd or creamy mascarpone cheese, you've got dessert sandwiches in no time at all. There are some more unexpected suggestions in this recipe collection, as well. Cereal plays a lead role in Chocolate-Cherry Clusters—which calls for cornflakes—and in Puffed-Rice Bars with Peanut Butter and Chocolate. Another fantastic secret weapon: frozen phyllo dough, which makes a delicious vessel in which to serve espresso whipped cream. All these quick dessert recipes prove that a speedy, sweet meal ender is well within reach, whenever the mood strikes.
It's one of our most popular recipes and for good reason. This is our original one-pot pasta recipe, inspired by a dish one of our food editors ate in Puglia, Italy. All the ingredients cook together in a straight-sided skillet, you don’t even need to boil water first—and it's on the table in just 20 minutes.
It's the best because this is the banana bread recipe that is Martha's go to. She included the recipe in her first book Entertaining and has been making it ever since. The batter for her easy-to-make favorite is enriched with sour cream, which gives it a subtle tang and super moist texture. Be sure to use really ripe but not bruised bananas and add chopped walnuts or pecans—Martha always goes with pecans. She says your family will "go bananas" for this old-fashioned quick bread.
