4 Desserts Even Dudes can Do

By Sharon Ng

She is your leading lady; whether the lady is your wife, significant other, auntie, your momma or some other lucky girl; she deserves something sweet for Mother's Day. Here are some tasty ideas that can be thrown together without too much time, and aren't super complicated but will make that lovely lady feel special!



Angel Food Cake with Fresh Fruit


Ingredients:
1 box angel food cake, perpared OR one purchased angel food cake
2 cups fresh berries, any combination; washed and hulled, and sprinkled with 1/4 cup sugar
OR 1 can fruit pie filling
1/4 cup sugar (if fresh berries are used)
1 can whipped topping (optional)


Directions:
At least one hour prior to serving, toss berries with sugar and refrigerate. Doing this will sweeten the berries and allow them to soften slightly, it will also bring out the juice of the berries, and create a simple syrup. You can do this several hours ahead of time if you desire.

Cut the prepared Angel Food cake in slices, top with a large spoonful of berries with some of the syrup, and top with whipped cream.

Peach Crème Brulee

This Recipe is really easy and looks very fancy, elegant, and impressive.


Ingredients:
6 canned peach halves, drained
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup brown sugar


Directions:
Stick drained peach halves in a shallow glass baking dish, cut side down. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Broil 4-6" from heat until fruit begins to brown in spots. Just brown the peaches slightly, we don't want them barbequed.

In a small bowl, combine sour cream with granulated sugar, and vanilla and mix well. Turn peaches over and spoon sour cream mixture over the fruit; sprinkle evenly with brown sugar. Broil 4-6" from the heat until sugar melts and caramelizes. The broiling gives the brulee crunch.
