The 10 Most Popular Dessert Recipes of 2021
By Mehreen Karim
Dear sugar, our sweet friend! In 2021, you were with us every step of the way. There were the Anzac biscuits (*not* cookies) in April, the pies of summer— blackberry , raspberry , peach !—and the apple cookies (yes, apple cookies) of fall.
Yet, our three most popular recipes belong to no season and no occasion. Turns out you don’t need a change of weather (or even a special event) to break out the flour, butter, and sugar. All that’s really required is a little free time and a need for sweets. So how’s tonight looking? After you scroll through this list, which starts at No. 10 and moves to No. 1—you’ll be excited to get baking.
10. Blackberry and Dried Apricot Slab Pie
A craveable, shareable, crowd-pleasing pie for every summer picnic and party.
The Filipino dessert layers shaved ice and condensed milk on top of all sorts of texturally contrasting ingredients for a deliciously chewy, crunchy, creamy, sticky, and refreshing result.
8. Peach Pie
When summer gives you perfect peaches, turn them into this glorious peach pie encased in a flaky all-butter crust.
7. Ruffled Milk Pie With Raspberries
Crunchy phyllo, juicy raspberries, and creamy custard come together harmoniously in this decadent bread pudding-like dessert.
6. Anzac Biscuits
Packed with oats, coconut, and rich golden syrup, this recipe for the beloved Australian “bikkies” lets you choose your own adventure: chewy or crunchy.
5. No-Mixer Vanilla Cake With Tangy Cream Cheese Frosting
Extremely plush, fine-crumbed, and dare-we-say moist, this is like the best wedding cake—and you mix it entirely by hand.
4. Caramel Apple Cookies
If a caramel apple and a snickerdoodle got together and created some seriously delicious magic, you'd end up with these soft and chewy cookies that taste like a mug of warm spiced cider on a crisp fall day.
3. Super Lemony Olive Oil Cake
When life gives you lemons, make Mina Stone's irresistibly moist and zesty olive oil cake.
2. Caramel Crunch–Chocolate Chunklet Cookies
These chocolate chunklet cookies are ingeniously baked in a muffin tin, resulting in perfectly crispy, caramelized edges and soft centers.
1. Classic Banana Pudding
No frills and no fuss. This banana pudding is the real, decadent deal.

53 Easy Desserts to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth
By Joe Sevier and The Editors of Epicurious
There are times when, feeling ambitious, the idea of rolling up your sleeves and getting lost in a weekend baking project sounds fun. Other times, easy desserts—the kinds that immediately meet your sugary needs—are all you can fathom making. Something sweet must appear, ASAP, your body tells you. (Or maybe it’s your heart talking. As they say, the heart wants what it wants.) For those latter moments, here’s a collection of desserts that come together with minimal active prep and cooking times. From brownies and one-bowl cakes to simple ice cream sundaes and three-ingredient truffles, this list contains 53 ways to make something satisfyingly sweet—right now.
Molten Double Chocolate Mug Cake
Mug cake isn't exactly the prettiest of easy desserts , but does that matter when it’s this gooey-rich and comes together in just three minutes?
Candied Pumpkin With Tahini and Date Syrup (Kabak Tatlısı)
Candied pumpkin is a popular sweet in Turkey, where it can either be cooked on the stove or in an oven. This recipe goes with the oven method for ease and speed.
Vanilla No-Bake Cheesecake With a Chocolate Cookie Crust
If you are new to no-bake cheesecakes, welcome to a world without cracked cake exteriors or over-baked interiors. There's no baking here , just refrigerating.
3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies
Like chocolate chip cookies, classic peanut butter cookies are hard to beat. But this gluten-free, three-ingredient cookie recipe—yes, you read that right—may be even better.
Blackberry and Chocolate Ice Cream Icebox Cake
This dish looks more complicated than it is. Really, if you have the time to whip some cream , you can throw together this no-bake dessert. (Also available in peach and pecan or raspberry-pistachio .)
Plátanos Horneados con Crema y Queso (Baked Banana With Crema and Cheese)
Whether you cook these heirloom bananas on a baking sheet in your oven or toss them onto the grill, their flavors will concentrate, which means most of the work is done. To finish, just top them with crema and queso fresco.
PBJ Thumbprint Bars
These blondie-like bars are flavored with peanut butter and dotted with pools of jam and toasty chopped peanuts. Finish the batch with a drizzle of melted white (or dark, or milk) chocolate.
Berry Cream Cheese Cake
Dark brown sugar gives this snacking cake a little molasses edge, which cuts the sweetness of the berries and the richness of the cream cheese.
Summer Berry-Coconut Milk Ice Pops
This jammy mash-up of blackberries , strawberries, and blueberries with coconut milk and cardamom beats vanilla ice cream any day.
The method here is a bit unusual: Dress juicy peaches with lemon zest, then smear the batter on top, followed by a dousing of sugar and hot water . The result is a crackly crust unrivaled in the world of cobbler recipes .
Microwave Coconut Sticky Rice With Mango
Coconut sticky rice needn't be intimidating. As Pepper Teigen, also known as model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen ’s mother, will show you, all you need is a microwave.
Best Cocoa Brownies
These deliciously fudgy brownies do call for good cocoa powder , but they don’t require you to melt dark chocolate . Skip that and get these babies into the oven even faster.
Lemon curd can be made with pantry staples , and this easy recipe calls for nothing beyond lemons (the juice and the zest), sugar, butter, and eggs.
One-Bowl Ricotta Olive Oil Pound Cake
No need to wait around for butter to soften for this citrusy one-bowl olive oil cake. It's also perfect in any season: Serve it with berries in summer, plums or figs in the fall, a citrus salad come winter, or poached rhubarb in spring. Or, skip the fruit and have it with a nice cup of tea .
Butter mochi's texture falls somewhere between sticky taffy and cloud-like marshmallows: delightfully chewy, bouncy, and dense all at the same time.
Cinnamon–Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie
There are times for individual cookies , and there are times that call for a large-format cookie that everyone at the table can enjoy. This one (an example of the latter) is, according to one reader, “easy, appealing, and tasty! Part of the fun is the variation in texture from the chewy center to the crisp edge.” Agreed.
Frozen Chocolate Bananas
Sure, Oreos and Reese's peanut butter cups are great, but how about a sweet treat that's almost as easy to make as it is to unwrap a package of cookies or candy—so easy, in fact, that your little ones can help ?
Cranberry-Orange Snacking Cake
The genius of this easy snacking cake recipe comes from using canned cranberry sauce as the fruit swirl. It’s perfect for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
Frozen Yogurt Bark
This refreshing treat is fun to eat for breakfast, but if you're serving it for dessert, you could drizzle some white chocolate or smashed pretzel bits (or maybe even Nutella?) over the bark before popping it in the freezer.
Homemade "Dole Whip"
As any Disney Park fanatic can tell you, it’s not a visit to the Magic Kingdom without a helping of this dairy-free, soft-serve–like pineapple dessert. Now you can make the magic at home.
Whipped Cream Cake
Neither butter nor oil is responsible for this cake's tender and moist texture. In this clever recipe from expert Rose Levy Beranbaum, it's all about heavy cream .
Chocolate Swirl Tiramisu
Classic tiramisu , while delicious, involves whipping egg yolks and soaking ladyfingers and fastidiously layering everything in a dish. In other words, it's a project. This cheater's tiramisu cuts some corners.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie
Is it a brownie or a chocolate chip cookie bar? Whatever you want to call it, it's clear that salted caramel and rich, fudgy chocolate were made for each other.
Avocado is the key to this low-sugar, vegan-friendly, crowd-pleasing chocolate pudding. So, yes, it would be completely acceptable for you to eat this (produce-based!) dessert for breakfast.
Instant Pot Lemon Vanilla Rice Pudding With Whipped Cream
If you have an Instant Pot , you can make this creamy, aromatic rice pudding with just ten minutes of active time. Let the machine do the rest.
3-Ingredient Creamy Coconut-Lime Ice Pops
Unsweetened coconut milk , cream of coconut, and limes. That's all you need for this easy dessert recipe, which makes for creamy, floral, refreshing, and portable treats.
Midnight Puppy Chow
This twist on the slumber party classic puppy chow—also known as monkey munch, muddy buddies, muddy munch, or reindeer chow—gets its darker look from a dusting of cocoa powder instead of confectioners' sugar.
Chocolate-Almond Fridge Fudge
This fudge is definitely an easy dessert to make, but one thing is non-negotiable: using bittersweet chocolate with minimum 60% cacao. Lower percentages won't get you the right texture (and fudge is all about the texture).
Raspberry-Lemon Icebox Cake
Maybe you ate gingersnaps growing up, but did you ever think to use them in a cake? Now's your chance. They add a hint of spice to this cream cheese–enriched make-ahead summer classic.
Sheet-Pan Brownie Thins
Some people are cakey brownie people, and some are chewy brownie people. This one's for the latter group. Spread the batter into a thin layer and you'll end up with ¼-inch-thick brownies, all of which have the texture of those edge pieces you usually go for.
Apple and Nut-Butter Puff Pastry Tarts
This recipe satisfies the urge for apple pie with a pack of store-bought frozen puff pastry.
Apple-Cranberry Crisp With Oatmeal-Cookie Crumble
Inspired by the bright flavors of cranberry sauce, tangy cranberries and sweet orange zest add a floral tartness to this apple crisp, which is topped with an oatmeal cookie crumble studded with almonds.
No-Bake Butterscotch-Coconut Cookies
Need cookies in a flash? These butterscotch "buttons" come together in 15 minutes and don't require an oven. (You don't need to turn that thing on right now.)
3-Ingredient Frozen Mud Pie
The pie crust: Buy a frozen pie shell . The ice cream: Buy that, too. The hardest part about this delicious dessert is slicing it.
Chocolate truffles sound elaborate, but they're almost as easy to make as s'mores: The base contains just two ingredients. After that, explore any fun toppings you like, from pistachios to toffee.
One-Bowl Milk Chocolate Cake With Chocolate-Caramel Frosting
One-bowl cakes are the kind of dessert you can make on a whim on a weeknight. Real milk chocolate—not just cocoa powder—gives this cake batter its rich, chocolatey flavor.
Easy Fruit Tart With Pecan Cookie Crust
This gorgeous dessert has a nutty tart shell inspired by pecan sandies and a lemon curd–spiked whipped cream filling. The fruit topping can be as simple as you like; just sprinkle berries on top if you want to. That's it.
3-Ingredient Maple-Pecan Fudge
This pecan-studded fudge is all about the flavor of pure maple syrup—and you really do want to use pure maple syrup since syrup with additives can separate during cooking.
Texas Sheet Cake
When time is tight and you need something to bring to a potluck, this is the perfect crowd pleaser: A large, thin layer of chocolate cake slathered with gooey chocolate frosting.
Quick Raspberry Charlotte
This sweet treat is a continental love story. Savoiardi, or crisp Italian-style ladyfingers, get the French treatment when they're doused in Cognac, cream, and raspberry purée.
You could make a fancy rhubarb cake or tart , but rhubarb’s naturally sweet and tangy flavors don’t need much more than a simple roasting in order to fully express themselves. This would be delicious served over ice cream after a big lasagna dinner.
Pastel Butter Cookies
To give almond shortbread cookies the pastel treatment, dust them with powdered sugar—powdered sugar that you've dyed with finely ground freeze-dried blueberries, raspberries, and mangoes . (Look at you!)
Ice pops are lovable because there’s so much payoff for so little fuss. These strawberry pops have two twists, though: balsamic vinegar and black pepper. (They work; promise.)
Raspberry Sundaes With Chocolate Sauce and Roasted Almonds
The only thing you really make for this simple dessert is the chocolate sauce. Otherwise, it’s just scooping and assembling.
Raspberry and Aperol Floats
These bittersweet floats feature citrusy Aperol , but you can use Campari if that's what you have on hand. Want to make a version for non-drinkers? Substitute pomegranate juice for the liqueur.
What's easier than making truffles? Half-making them. Bring the truffle mixture to the table and serve it family-style; then your guests can handle the toppings, tossing them in cocoa powder or sandwiching them between wedges of clementine.
Mini Strawberry Eton Mess
A classic British dessert—truly a beautiful, delicious mess—made of whipped cream, store-bought meringues , and fruit, the Eton mess looks like it took way more time to make than it did.
Any Berry Galette
Galettes satisfy the taste for pie, but they're so much more forgiving. The shape doesn't really matter and the crust is easy to make (or buy).
Meyer Lemon Cream with Graham Crackers and Sea Salt
Adding cream to lemon curd makes it extra spoonable, almost mousse-like. From there, just crumble some graham crackers in your hands and sprinkle them on top. (The title of this gallery doesn’t lie.)
Anytime Chocolate Chip and Oat Cookies
Optimized for portioning, chilling, and baking right from the freezer, this texture-rich cookie dough—it has oats, whole grain flour, and nuts and seeds—means you're never more than 25 minutes away from a warm, gooey cookie .
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Grated zucchini is the secret behind this cake's moistness (and a fun way to get your vegetables in), while chocolate chips and walnuts add texture. This recipe would probably make great cupcakes, too. Just saying.
No-Churn Almond and Raspberry Swirl Ice Cream
If you've never seen "ice cream" and "easy desserts" in the same sentence, please meet no-churn ice cream. No ice cream machine is required; just an electric mixer and a freezer.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
New York-style cheesecake is a lot like New Yorkers themselves — no nonsense, just the cake without any toppings or sauce (although you can always add them). It's hard to resist the smooth, extra-creamy texture of this classic dessert, like that of this top-rated recipe from recipe creator Taliesen : "Everyone that's tried it has said it tasted just like the ones in a deli!"

Angel Food Cake I

"When I moved from Lebanon to Florida spring of 1999, I brought with me my love for cooking and search for new recipes. The famous key lime pie was new to me," says recipe creator Arlette Therese Abdallah . "I kept playing with the recipe, and the right flavor was found."
Sunday's Apple Pie
Apple pie is so patriotic that it's not uncommon for folks to use the phrase "as American as apple pie" when looking to describe something that's quintessentially American. Try using a combination of apples such as Granny Smith and Honeycrisp apples for a nice balance of sweet and tart flavors.
Funnel Cakes IV
Synonymous with county fairs and carnivals, funnel cakes are believed to be created by the Pennsylvania Dutch. Reviewer April suggests using a cleaned out ketchup bottle to dispense the batter.
- 15 Over-the-Top Carnival and Fair Foods You Can Make at Home
American pralines were developed in New Orleans as a variation of French pralines. Pecans were substituted for almonds, and cream was added to the mix for a super smooth, fudge-like confection.

Whoopie Pies I
It is said that Amish husbands and children would shout "whoopie!" upon finding one of these handheld pies in their lunch, although many different places from Maine to Pennsylvania lay claim to this iconic American treat.
Black and White Cookies I
Born out of New York City bakeries, this eye-catching cookie features one half vanilla and one half chocolate frosting.

Lemon Chiffon Cake
A whipped lemon pie filling is sandwiched between layers of light and airy lemon chiffon cake in this bright and luscious dessert.
Sweet Potato Pie I
Sweet potato pie, the Southern cousin to pumpkin pie, was developed by enslaved people, and continues to be tradition in the South and within Black communities. Reviewer SL says, "People who have eaten sweet potato pie all their lives say this recipe is the best they have ever tasted."
Harvey Wallbanger Cake
Inspired by the 1970s libation , this cake came onto the scene not long after its cocktail counterpart and features ingredients from the classic drink including Galliano liqueur, orange juice, and vodka.
Mississippi Mud Pie I
This fluffy, chocolaty dessert comes in countless variations, some with two layers, some with five. This version features a graham cracker crust with layers of fluffy cream cheese and chocolate pudding. "I've made this for two occasions now and it was always the first empty dish," says reviewer Mary .
Zebra Cake III
Recipe creator Joanne L. Hayes learned this easy-to-make icebox cake from her grandmother-in-law, who served it during World War II.
Copycat Berger Cookies
"Berger cookies are a product of Baltimore's DeBaufre Bakeries," says recipe creator thymeforpineapple . "They are similar to New York City's Black and Whites (a.k.a. Half-and-Halfs or Half Moons). They are cake-like cookies piled with thick, rich chocolate icing."
This unique and admittedly strange dessert consists of cake and ice cream enveloped in a toasted meringue. The meringue acts to insulate the ice cream from the heat, making this classic dessert quite the culinary feat.
Old-Fashioned Strawberry Pretzel Salad
A strawberry pretzel salad is standard fare at potlucks (there's always at least one in the church cookbook!). It features a crust made of pretzels, topped with layers of cream cheese and strawberry jello.
- 15 Vintage Jell-O Desserts That Are Due for a Comeback
Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
The real key to an excellent snickerdoodle is cream of tartar: This humble ingredient gives the cookies its signature tang and chewy texture.
Old-Fashioned Peanut Brittle
As legend has it, peanut brittle was apparently an accidental creation: In the late 19th century, a woman was making taffy when she added baking soda instead of cream of tartar. The result was a hard brittle rather than a soft, chewy taffy.
Southern Red Velvet Cake
Originally, red velvet cake got its hue from the reaction between raw cocoa powder and acidic ingredients such as buttermilk and vinegar. Today's cocoa powder has been alkalized, so in order to achieve the eye-catching red color you'll need to rely on red food coloring or plant-based alternatives like beets.
- Why Is Red Velvet Cake Red?
Grandma's Sour Cream Pound Cake
Sour cream imparts moisture, richness, and its signature tang to many types of baked goods, but few are more beloved than a classic sour cream pound cake.
- What Does Sour Cream Actually Do for My Baking?
These molasses-spice cookies date back to the Colonial era, and get their signature flavor from the rum: "An old-time American cookie from New England, attributed to the legendary Uncle Joe who made cookies as big as lily pads," says recipe creator Dawn.
Peaches and Cream
The name of this classic dessert is also used to describe any instance in which everything seems to be going well (ex: "Everything's been peaches and cream!"), which is pretty fitting for this easy-to-make dessert that always turns out delicious.
Minnesota Apple Crisp
An apple crisp is like apple pie's no frills but equally delicious cousin. What's the difference between a crisp and a crumble? A crisp topping usually incorporates oats, which gives it its signature crunch.
Ibby's Grasshopper Pie
This retro dessert was inspired by the 1950s cocktail . Grasshopper pie usually has a chocolate cookie crust with a creamy filling flavored with creme de menthe.
Fresh Coconut Cake
What's not to love about this classic Southern dessert? White cake is flavored with fresh coconut, frosted with white frosting, and sprinkled with grated coconut.
Shoofly Pie V
This Pennsylvania Dutch pie gets its name because the sweet molasses, brown sugar, and butter filling inevitably attracts pesky flies.
Holiday Ambrosia Salad
Synonymous with holiday celebrations in the South, ambrosia salad is prepared in advance and served cold, making it excellent for potlucks or any gathering.
Lady Baltimore Cake
Nope, this classic cake does not hail from Baltimore. It's actually named for the cake referenced in Owen Wister's 1903 romance novel titled "Lady Baltimore." The real life cake was served to Wister by Alicia Rhett Mayberry in Charleston, South Carolina, or so the story goes. It's no wonder this show-stopping cake made it in Wister's novel — layers of white cake alternate with a fluffy frosting and a fruit and nut filling.
Coco-Cola Cake II
In the South, there is no soda, only "Coke." So, it's only fitting that the famous drink would become the inspiration for this Southern dessert. It somewhat resembles a Texas sheet cake, but features cola soft drink and sometimes mini marshmallows in the batter. The resulting cake doesn't taste all that much like cola, but it does have an ultra-moist, rich texture thanks to the fizzy drink.

Our Best Chocolate Dessert Ideas
Some say, ‘less is more’ but when it comes to chocolate we believe the opposite! Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, blonde chocolate and cocoa powder—we love using all sorts of chocolate for baking . Once you learn a few basics (like how to melt chocolate so that it doesn’t seize up and how to temper chocolate so that it keeps its glossy shine) you’ll be making everything from ganache for truffles and decadent cakes to the fudgiest pies and cookies—in no time. Wondering where to start? This cake fits our ‘more is more’ philosophy with a chocolate filling, frosting and candy bar topping. Better yet, it comes together in one bowl which makes cleanup a breeze. That means you'll be indulging in a slice of chocolatey goodness just a little bit sooner. Sweet!

Ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cake
This flourless chocolate cake is the very definition of the word "decadent." You'll use an entire bag of dark chocolate chips to make the dessert's dreamy filling, which is equal parts fudgy and rich. Don’t forget to top your baked cake with freshly made whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder before serving — doing so takes it to the next level!
Get the Recipe: Ultimate Flourless Chocolate Cake
The Best Chocolate Mousse
The best chocolate mousse must be perfect. It should taste rich, indulgent and not too sweet, with a texture that is both light-and-airy and silky-and-smooth. After many attempts we nailed it and made a dessert that not only exceeded our standards, it's also quite easy to pull off. Close your eyes and take a bite — you'll be transported to a 4-star French restaurant.

Chocolate Lemon Bars
Lemon and chocolate might sound like an unusual pairing on paper, but once you take a bite of these tricolored bars, you'll forever be a fan of the zesty flavor combination. A generous sparkle of flaky sea salt on top also makes the perfect garnish to offset this dessert’s silky-smooth chocolate ganache.

Why did they stop selling the chocolate cheesecake? Will it be coming back on the menu anytime soon?
Hello! Right now we are not selling the chocolate cake. We do rotate our flavors so please follow us on Instagram to stay up to date with new offerings and flavors :)
Are there burnt basque cheesecakes available at opening at 11am? Is it possible to pre-order for 11am pick up? Also what time are the cheese tarts available?

Not only do I love their cheesecakes, but their service is so fast. They have their cakes premade, so they were already handing me my order by the time I was done paying. I've been here many times and my favorites are the Oreo cheesecake and the pandan cheesecake. They're super affordable prices as well. This place gets a lot of foot traffic as well since it's right next to the movies and Ramenagi, but the line usually isn't too long. Highly recommend!
I stopped by Uncle Tetsu today when hanging around Valley Fair. Got a matcha cheesecake to go and one traditional cheese tart. The cheese tart was good, creamy and warm. The crust was a bit sweet and dense for my prefer 4/5 stars I do feel it a bit over priced for $15 cheesecake.
Original cheese tart
Soft, creamy and warm
All the times I've went on weekends, I've never encountered a line. They are really quick since they usually have each flavor stocked and ready to go. I ordered the ube one and was given it immediately at the register without any wait at all. I do question how they store the cheesecakes since it seemed like they just grabbed it under the counter. It wasn't warm or cold so I don't know if there's anything to preserve the freshness/keep it from going bad. The price is ok, it was $14 flat for a small cheesecake. The cake is very dense but very fluffy/moist at the same time.
First time trying Japanese cheesecake and it did not disappoint! We got the ube flavor and the cheesecake itself was fluffy and light while also being nice and moist -- definitely not the cheesecake one may be used to in the US! However, I do wish the ube flavor was a bit stronger as it had a very subtle taste of ube. Overall a good dessert / snack especially if you're not wanting something heavy, and I'd definitely visit again to try their tarts or their burnt basque cheesecake.
Absolutely love the uncle tetsu Cheesecake. This is not the first time I have tried it. I have tried it in Australia in past and finally saw it in Westfield and it's exactly the same. I still remember there used to be huge lines in Sydney to get these cheesecakes. The popularity is totally worth it. I love how spongy, airy and well balanced are these cakes. Main thing is consistency this is very nostalgic for me. When I visited this time they were out off cheese tarts so I got only the original cheese cake. I absolutely loved it. I will come back here for the tarts next time.
Noelle's Yelp Notebook 2023 Post Pandemic Chronicles Uncle Tetsu is a go to of mine for dessert in Westfield Valley Fair. I love Japanese Cheesecake- it's so fluffy and lightly sweetened. They also have the most delicious mini tarts in different flavors. On our most recent visit we purchased the following: Oreo Cheesecake Basque Cheese Mini cheesecake tarts- yuzu, matcha, ube, chocolate. My husband and son are fans of Uncle Tetsu cheesecakes. I prefer the cheesecake tarts. While all the flavors are delicious- Yuzu is my all time favorite flavor. They are opening an Uncle Tetsu in Westfield Oakridge Mall (closer to my house) which is exciting news. Uncle Tetsu cheesecakes and tarts are great for a light dessert, something to bring to a party or a gift for a family or friend. Different locations have different items. The San Mateo location has the biscotti and more flavors. The biscotti is amazing!!! I love Uncle Tetsu Bakery and glad they are expanding in the San Jose area. Noelle's Notes Great cheesecake Amazing Yuzu cheesecake tart Makes a great dessert for a party Makes a great gift for a loved one

Light and floffy and for a very reasonable price. No lines and a quick friendly transaction. Tarts were sold out but all the flavors of cheesecake were available. Reminds me of Piggy's ears. Light and floffy. Oh, and a hint of cheesy teehee. And you know, thats how I want my cheesecakes. Most Americans have terrible taste in desserts. Overly sweet, heavy, sickening. It was my friends birthday and shes not American so I wanted to get something a little different. Most American desserts I wouldn't even dump in a pig trough.... diabetes and overweight terrible. In Japan they seem to do things right. Lovely delicate delicious. German cheesecakes are also excellent - but the only ones I like are sold in Torrance, CA and that is a bit too far for a dessert. Those are somewhere between this type and the heavy duty brick sold at Cheesecake factory. Super value. Very, very affordable. I searched this bakery seems to mostly be in upscale malls across the bay. I look forward to trying out the tarts one day soon - I don't think they are light and floffy but I'm sure they aren't overly sugared.
Light and floffy
My first time trying out Japanese cheesecake and as someone who is not a huge fan of western cheesecake, it was quite delicious! The cheesecakes are sponge cake in texture with the taste of traditional cheesecake. Here's what we ordered: Pandan: the pandan taste is present, fragrant in scent, does not taste overly coconut-y which I prefer Mocha: universally delicious imo, strong mocha taste that is not overly bitter or sweet However, I had to drop a star because the batch of egg tarts were OVERWHELMINGLY salty. We ordered one of each flavor (mocha, matcha, ube, original). Each bite gave a punch of saltiness followed by the flavor, which we were not huge fans of. The salty taste lingered so we had to wash our palettes down with tea. The graham crust was delicious though - it offered the right amount of sweetness which helped offset the custard's saltiness.
I like the Pandan Coconut Cheesecake but some of my friends are not into it , so it depends on your taste buds. If you like intense coconut flavor that's also sweet you might like this one. One of my Chinese friends love the original. I like the original also. You can always get the small tarts to try it out before buying the whole cheesecake. Service is always good here, fast and reliable. Staff here are knowledgeable and helpful. Takeouts only but there are some tables and chairs nearby on the second floor of Valley Fair.
I've passed by Uncle Tetsu many times when I visited Westfield Valley Fair mall but was never interested in trying it out. This time, I decided to buy a Japanese cheesecake to try to know what it is and what the texture/flavor is supposed to be. The line was really short on a Saturday afternoon so it was for me. I ordered a pandan coconut Japanese cheesecake ($14). It was not too sweet (a great plus), fluffy, moist. The texture is a combination of cheesecake and sponge cake. It was good but the pandan flavor wasn't strong enough imo. I heard from my family members that coconut flavor was pretty good but they don't add enough coconut flakes so I never had a chance to try (this is why I can't give them 5 stars). Service is okay, didn't interact with their employees much. I'd come back and try the burnt cheese cake. The cheese tart is different from the burnt cheese btw.

9 sweet and salty dessert recipes, including cookies, bars and fudge
As counterintuitive as it may sound, sometimes the ingredient a dessert needs to truly sing is a bit of salt. I’m sure the notion of a salty sweet is something I would have turned my nose up at in my younger years, but I’ve come to appreciate how even a few flakes can elevate the flavor of your favorite baked goods.
In addition to flavoring otherwise bland ingredients commonly used in baking — such as flour, butter, eggs and cream — salt can bring other foods into focus. Chocolate is a primary example. A sprinkling of flaky salt provides contrasting crunch and a pleasant pop of briny flavor. It brings balance and wards against desserts that veer into cloying.
7 myths about cooking with salt
If you like those kinds of salty sweets, here are some great options from our archives .

White Hot Chocolate
10/04/20 | Beverages , Recipe for One , Recipes
This creamy and marvelous White Hot Chocolate can be made with just two ingredients in five minutes.
Hey friend, how is the weather where you are right now? Here in California, it’s just starting to cool down, and you know what that means. It’s hot chocolate weather! (AKA the best weather.)
If it’s hot chocolate weather where you are today, you should absolutely treat yourself to a cup of something warm and sugary.
And if it’s warm and sugary you want, you can’t go wrong with a cup of creamy, marvelous White Hot Chocolate. A cup of it could be yours with just two ingredients, milk and white chocolate, and five minutes.
- Milk: You can use any percentage milk you’d like. The higher the fat content, the creamier your drink will be.
- White chocolate: Make sure to use a high-quality white chocolate bar or high-quality chips.
A Note on White Chocolate: Because this hot chocolate gets all its flavor and sweetness from the white chocolate, it is incredibly rich and creamy, BUT that also means that you must use high-quality white chocolate in your drink.
High-quality chips are fine, but you want chocolate that tastes good on its own. If you wouldn’t eat the chips (or chunks) by the handful, don’t put them in your hot chocolate, because that’s what your hot chocolate is going to taste like.
How to Make White Hot Chocolate
- Heat milk until steaming on the stove or in the microwave.
- Stir in chopped high-quality white chocolate until melted.
- Pour into a mug and top with an obnoxious number of marshmallows and enjoy.
- Peppermint: Add just a couple drops (to taste) of peppermint extract to your hot chocolate or crush a candy cane and melt it into the milk while heating it on the stove.
- Snickerdoodle: Place 2 cinnamon sticks in your milk and heat milk to steaming. Turn off heat and allow the cinnamon sticks to sit in the milk and infuse it with flavor for 5 minutes before continuing with the recipe as written.
- Extra creamy: You can also add a splash of heavy cream for an ultra-rich and creamy drink.

Does this taste like Starbucks white hot chocolate?
I stopped in and picked up a Starbucks white hot chocolate so I could compare the two, and I’d say that both versions are delicious, but this is definitely a more decadent-feeling hot chocolate than theirs. Because it’s made with real white chocolate, it’s much richer and creamier than the Starbucks version.
Can I add coffee to this?
Sure. If you want to add coffee, go make my White Chocolate Mocha . It uses the same ingredients but has slightly different ratios to better highlight the coffee flavor. (You might enjoy also my Homemade Mocha or Caramel Macchiato .)
More Hot Chocolate Recipes
White chocolate not your thing? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. Try one of these other hot chocolates:
- Hot Chocolate (Classic)
- Rich and Thick Hot Chocolate
- Peanut Butter Hot Chocolate
- Chai Hot Chocolate
This recipe makes one cup of hot chocolate, enough to fill an 8-ounce mug. If you’d like to fill an oversized mug, 1 1/2 or double the recipe.
- ▢ 1 cup milk any percentage
- ▢ 2 ounces ( about 1/3 cup ) good-quality white chocolate chopped*
- ▢ Whipped cream
- ▢ Marshmallows
- ▢ Crushed candy cane
- In a small saucepan or the microwave, heat milk until steaming. Add white chocolate and stir until melted.
- Pour into an 8-ounce cup, top with optional toppings, and enjoy!

SHEfinds / Food / The Best Dessert You Can Eat Every Day, According To A Registered Dietitian
The best dessert you can eat every day, according to a registered dietitian, november 4, 2023 by faith geiger, shefinds | food.
If you have a sweet tooth, you may feel like you have to make a lot of sacrifices in order to lose weight. However, while it may be true that cutting out sugary treats is an important part of shedding pounds, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy dessert on a regular basis. Compromise is key! As it turns out, there are plenty of healthy desserts that can help you along the way as you navigate your weight loss journey. In fact, there’s one tasty option that experts say you can have every day and still slim down.
To discover one of the healthiest desserts that won’t put your weight loss goals at risk, we spoke to nutritionist Krutika Nanavati . She told us that fruit salad is a delicious way to fit a bit of sweetness in after dinner while still keeping your body in great shape. Find all of her expert insight regarding the benefits of this food below.
Fruit salad for weight loss
While you may have to say goodbye to chocolate cake, decadent cookies, and gooey brownies, Nanavati says that fruit salad makes a fantastic option whenever you're craving something a little sweet after dinner. This dessert, she tells us, "not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also provides you with a plethora of essential nutrients," giving you the best of both worlds. "It's a healthy dessert option that satisfies the craving for sweetness without the guilt of consuming high calories." Yum!
There are several reasons fruit salad could help you lose weight. For one, it can pack a lot of fiber into your diet. "Fruits are high in fiber, which helps to reduce excessive eating by promoting feelings of fullness," Nanavati says. Additionally, enjoying some fruit at the end of a meal can provide a lot more lasting satiating than a processed, sugary dessert: "Most fruits have a high water content, contributing to satiety."
The natural sugars in fruit also make a great alternative to the refined sugar found in most desserts, which can lead to a range of health issues . "Unlike processed sugars found in other desserts, the natural sugars in fruits are easily digested by the body, making it a healthier option for those trying to lose weight," she goes on.
Plus, when you make your own fruit salad, you can add in all the healthy, delicious fruits your heart desires and tailor it to your own taste. Ultimately, this is a benefit-packed dessert you can enjoy guilt-free. Sign us up!

Healthy Desserts for Weight Loss: Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth Without Sabotaging Your Goals
Posted: November 2, 2023 | Last updated: November 3, 2023
If you are trying to lose weight, you might think that desserts are off-limits. However, depriving yourself of sweets can backfire and lead to binge eating or cravings.
The good news is that you can enjoy desserts as part of a balanced diet, as long as you choose wisely and watch your portions. Here are some tips and examples of weight loss-friendly desserts that can satisfy your sweet tooth without sabotaging your goals.
- Choose desserts that are high in protein and fiber, which can help you feel full and prevent overeating. For example, try Greek yogurt with berries, cottage cheese with fruit, or oatmeal cookies made with whole wheat flour and nuts.
- Opt for desserts that are low in added sugar and fat, which can add empty calories and increase inflammation. For example, try dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa, fresh fruit salad with whipped cream, or baked apples with cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Make your own desserts at home using natural sweeteners and healthy ingredients. For example, try banana ice cream made by blending frozen bananas with cocoa powder or peanut butter, date brownies made by blending dates with walnuts and cocoa powder, or chia pudding made by soaking chia seeds in almond milk and vanilla extract.
- Enjoy desserts in moderation and savor every bite. Aim for no more than 150 calories per serving and limit yourself to one serving per day. Use small plates or bowls to control your portions and avoid mindless snacking.
- Avoid desserts that are high in refined carbs, artificial sweeteners, trans fats, or processed ingredients. These can spike your blood sugar levels, trigger cravings, interfere with your metabolism, or cause digestive issues. For example, stay away from cakes, pies, pastries, candy bars, ice cream cones, or soda.
By following these tips and examples of weight loss-friendly desserts, you can indulge your sweet tooth without feeling guilty or compromising your health. Remember that balance is key and enjoy your treats as part of a wholesome diet.
