Sadly, the vast majority of these look like they were for kids, too sweet and insubstantial. Would rather have an old-fashioned favorite like my mother's cake with brandy-soaked cherries, whipped cream frosting and chocolate shavings surrounding a dense white cake with plenty of vanilla flavor or, better still, a bowl of fresh berries with a drizzle of heavy cream over the top.

Your recipe sounds better than most of them.

Got sugar overload before I was 1/3 of the way through the list.

Maybe next time, HP can compile a reduced sugar and fat dessert list next time.

Agreed. A lot of it looked too rich for my blood. I'm still keeping some of them in mind, though, like the cherry squares. Good for a potluck, I'm thinking.

A much better list.

I hope you mean "real" shortcake not what some people refer to as strawberry shortcake. The cake is much like a biscuit but made with sugar and shortening, thus shortcake. One of my pet peeves is white cake, pound cake or angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream being served as "shortcake".

Most of these recipes are cakes and bars. Not exactly what I'd call 'desserts'.

If cake isn't a dessert, what is it? BTW, check your apostrophes.

they're not apostrophes. they're single quotes. and they're used correctly.

I used quote marks Sophie.  Unlike in America, it's common in Europe to not use double quote marks if you are not quoting.  I was just emphasising that cakes normally aren't desserts.  They are for the afternoon.  You'd know that if you didn't have a spike up your ass.

I was looking forward to seeing some great, iconic desserts on this list. Unfortunately it looks like someone's random pinterest board. Meh

Being grilling season, my simplest tasty dessert, are halved peaches, with honey, and cinnamon,
grilled to heat them up, topped with roasted walnuts, and vanilla ice cream. Simple as dirt, and taste great, and light, so you don't feel you've over indulged. The tastes all come together well. You can't go wrong with this one.

I'll be over for dinner at 6. Shall I bring white or red? Or maybe a dessert wine?

The best desserts of all time? Seriously? I don't think so.

No, no, no. This slideshow was more than a little off - also did not indicate if it was counting down or up.

Only a few of these belong on the list. Most are just trendy flavor-of-the-month recipes.
