If you have a sweet tooth, chances are you’ll have some go-to dessert ideas for when you’re feeling indulgent. If you want to expand your options, then British desserts are well-known for being delicious treats, especially in winter. Here are three that you should give a go throughout the upcoming colder months.
Sticky Toffee Pudding
This is like a sponge pudding, but is very heavy and moist and made with dates. It’s served hot, and covered in toffee sauce. If this isn’t enough sweetness for you, it’s then often paired with custard or ice cream for the most dreamy sticky sweet dessert you could imagine.
You may be familiar with crisps or cobblers, but the classic British apple crumble is the original. Cooked and sweetened apples are topped with the crumble mixture, which traditionally is made of oats, and this is then baked in the oven until crispy.
Traditional Bakewell tart is out of this world. Within a shortcrust pastry base, you have jam, frangipane (made of ground almonds), and flaked almonds. This results in a delicate yet rich flavor and texture and is a must-try.
