Top 8 Easy Sweets You Can Make At Home |

You don’t have to be a master baker to make some delicious desserts.

The food team at have come up with some easy recipes to enjoy at home – or that will make you the talk of your next dinner party.

Here are eight of our top favourites:


Tiramisu is an Italian dessert that translates as “pick me up,” and it certainly does just that. This trifle consists of layers of delicious Savoyardi sponge finger biscuits that are dipped in coffee and layered with creamy mascarpone and cocoa.

Although it hails from Italy, tiramisu is an Australian favourite.

It’s a perfect option for dinner parties because it can be prepared in advance and your guests are sure to go back for seconds.

Although it may be tempting to dig into the dish for the melt-in-your-mouth layers, it’s really best to keep the tiramisu in the fridge for at least two hours, if not longer.

This allows the biscotti to really cleanly taste the bitter coffee to offset the sweet mascarpone perfectly. While some people like to add a twist, such as adding chocolate, we like to keep things simple (though mixing it up with Marsala doesn’t hurt!).
