Tired of chocolate? You’re crazy, but not alone.
We’re calling it – we are die-hard lovers of chocolate. We’re the type of bakers that must sample every block, who won’t let a chocolate shaving go to waste, and swoon over a gooey, chocolate centre. But sometimes, you just want a chocolate-free dessert.
Don’t revoke our dessert master membership just yet, these recipes are sweet and rich all on their own, no cocoa required.
So when you’re craving something sweet, why not reach for one of these dessert recipes instead.
Coconut Tea Cake
Take your tastebuds on a tropical holiday even in the depths of winter with this delightful tea cake. With coconut and lime as the main flavours it will become your new favourite weekend treat.
Apple Kuchen Tart with Salted Caramel Sauce
Apples are in season right now and what better way to celebrate that than with this tart? Topped with slices of apple and served with a side of salted caramel of sauce, you’ll be deeply satisfied with this warming winter treat.
Middle Eastern Mandarin and Almond Spice Cake
Want a little bit of spice while you’re exploring the wide world of chocolate-free desserts? We don’t blame you. Sweet and spicy are an incredible combination, and when mandarin and almond are added to the mix it tastes even better.
Vanilla Slice with Passionfruit Icing
We’ve given this Australian bakery classic our own NEFF Kitchen spin with sweet passionfruit icing. It transforms this sweet dessert, beloved by children all over the country, into a tropical treat even mums can get behind.
Nectarine Frangipane Tart
Stone fruits like nectarines really don’t get as much love as they should, but this tart shows them for the hero we know they are. With crisp pastry, a fluffy frangipane centre and slices of sweet nectarine on top, this tart is for those who don’t like their desserts too sweet.
Serve this crispy, sweet pastry hot and with your choice of cream – whipped, poured or iced. The tart cherry filling mixes with the sugary pastry for the ultimate winter strudel.
Almond Custard Tart with Mango
Okay, this tart is best suited to warm summer days with a big scoop of ice cream. But no list of chocolate-free desserts would be complete without it. We’re counting the days until mango season and this will be the very first thing we make!
