    individual fruit crumbles with a scoop of yummy icecream? darn easy if you
    have the ramekins already, can be made ahead and put into the oven as you
    are eating the main course...

    Get a nice lemon sorbet of good quality. Put a few scoops into a dessert or
    wine glass - top with fresh berries and some lemon zest. If you want the berries
    can be soaked in a little cream sherry just for the vanilla undertones.

    Trifle, tiramisu, caramel custard, pies, tarts, cake with creme anglais,
    bananas Foster, eclairs, bread pudding, torte, homemade ice cream with
    shortbread cookies (biscuits).

    We can get very nice tiny creampuffs (profitteroles) frozen, from the
    Netherlands. I often serve these to guests plated on swirls of
    chocolate or caramel and topped with confectioner's sugar.

    look for the recipe for Barb's Rhubarb Custard Cake. Make it as-is, or
    sub your favorite fruit. It's a popular one around here!!

    How about an upside down apple honey cake? Here is a recipe for 12
    servings.
    Put a 12x10 inch pan in the oven with 3/4 cup of honey in it. Turn the
    oven on to 375 and let the honey warm while you make the batter and
    slice apples.
    You will need to peel, core and thinly slice 4 apples. When this is
    done you can put them in the pan with the honey and place it back in
    the oven. Next make the batter.
    Brown 1 cup of butter. Beat it with 1 cup honey, 1 tbsp. Baking soda
    and 1 tbsp. baking powder. Add in 4 eggs, 1 tbsp. vanilla and 1 cup
    plain yogurt. Finally stir in 3 cups whole grain flour, and 1 cup
    white flour. Pour the batter over the honey and apples, and bake for 1
    hour, or until a toothpick comes out of the cake clean. When the cake
    is done, you will want to cool for 10 minutes and then turn it out of
    the pan. If you wait to long to take it out the honey will cook and
    stick. It is best served still warm with vanilla ice cream.

    How about this?

    It's only for 8, But I can scale it up to 12 or 16 if you want, but it can
    get pretty messy with 1/2s and other silly
    measurements coming into play.

    Please note that the imperial mesurements are UK imperial.

    Rum and Banana Souffle

    Recipe By :
    Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Baked Dessert
    Fruit Souffle


    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    125 grams caster sugar -- (4.5 oz)
    1 tablespoon caster sugar (extra)
    12 medium eggs
    75 grams plain flour -- (3 oz)
    375 millilitres milk -- (13 fl. oz)
    20 grams unsalted butter -- (3/4 oz)
    1 split vanilla pod
    1 large banana -- mashed
    2 tablespoons rum -- to taste
    icing sugar -- to dust
    unsalted butter -- to coat ramekins
    caster sugar -- to dust ramekins

    Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas mark 4. Grease 8 ramekin dishes with
    butter and then dust with caster sugar.
    Separate the yolks from the whites of 10 eggs, putting 8 yolks in one bowl,
    2 yolks in another, and 4 egg whites in another bowl.
    Add the 125 g of sugar and 2 remaining whole eggs to the bowl containing the
    2 egg yolks. Whisk to a light, pale colour, then fold in the flour.
    Place the milk, butter and vanilla pod in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
    Then remove from the heat and discard the vanilla pod.
    Pour the egg mixture into the saucepan of milk, whisking vigorously and
    continuously until a very thick custard is formed. Then return to the heat
    and whisk continuously until it comes to the boil. Add the 8 yolks and beat
    in briefly.
    Remove from the heat and pour into a clean bowl. Beat (by hand or with a
    mixer) for 5 minutes. This will make the mixture smooth and also help to
    cool it down. This is the 'base' for the soufflé.
    Mix the rum with the mashed banana, add this to the 'base' and set to one
    side.
    Beat the 4 egg whites in a large glass bowl until they begin to form peaks.
    Then gradually add the tbsp of sugar, beating continually until stiff peaks
    form.
    Using a rubber spatula, fold 1/5 of the egg white carefully into the base,
    making sure not to beat the air out. Then fold in another 3/5 of the egg
    white. At this point, you need to choose whether to add the remaining 1/5 of
    the egg white, which will make the soufflé rise more, but will reduce the
    flavour.
    Divide the mixture between the ramekins, filling them to the top. Bake for
    10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked. Then remove from the oven and
    dust with icing sugar.
    Serve immediately.

    I had great success using 3 cups strawberries and 1 cup raspberries as a
    replacement for the rhubarb. Others like canned pears.

    Depends on how you prepare the dessert. If mashed down well, and
    amalgamated well with other ingredients, tends to be ok.

    Anyway, here is another to try;

    Blueberry & Apple Cobbler

    175g Bramley Cooking Apple, approx. (6 oz)
    250g Punnet Blueberries (9oz)
    50g Light muscovado sugar (2oz)
    250g Carton Mascarpone
    --For the topping--
    85g Butter, cut into pieces (3oz)
    225g Flour, self raising (8oz)
    50g Light muscovado sugar (2oz)
    1 Lemon, grated zest of
    150g Carton Natural Yogurt

    Preheat oven to 220C/Gas7/Fan 200C.
    Peel, core and thinly slice apple, put into a 1.5L / 2.5Pint ovenproof dish.
    Scatter over the blueberries, sprinkle with the muscovado sugar and gently
    stir.
    Spoon over the mascarpone.

    Make the topping:
    Rib the butter into the flour by hand or in a food processor, until it looks
    like breadcrumbs.
    Stir in the sugar and lemon zest.
    Make a well in the centre and tip in the yogurt, stir evenly until combined,
    but do not overmix.

    Spoon the cobbler mixture onto the fruit and mascarpone.
    Bake for 20 minutes until the topping is risen and golden and the filling is
    bubbling.

    Serves: 6

    A suggestion for those who don't have such a sweet tooth, like me.

    I have cooked Barb's Rhubarb Custard Cake several times and reduce the
    sugar to no more than 1/2 cup. It allows some of the tartness of the
    fruit to come through.
