The rain is pouring, it’s cold outside, you’re snug as a bug and cosied up on the couch, but now your sweet tooth has kicked in. Nothing beats a warm, satisfying dessert and whether it’s a pudding or a cake, some things just taste better in winter.

Whether you’re experimenting in the kitchen on a woolly winter day, or you’re after a dish for your dinner party guests, we’ve put together some of our favourite comforting desserts to whip up this winter. From classics to easy and impressive desserts, keep these ideas handy for any occasion. 

Salted Peanut Brownie Puddings

A match made in heaven, this is the perfect combination of salty, sweet and rich, rich chocolate. Pour them into individual ramekins for a dinner party, or make one big bowl for the family to tuck into, it’s a win-win for any night of the week. Plus, it’s a one-bowl recipe!

Classic Apple Crumble

Sometimes sticking to the classics is the only option (after all they’re classics for a reason), so if it’s a crumble you’re craving, head to baking icon Donna Hay’s recipe. Her reliable approach to delivering delicious, easy-to-follow dishes will see you off to a sweet start. Another reason this is a winner is the ingredients are mainly pantry staples; just butter, flour and sugar and that means less grocery shopping and more cooking! Last decision remains a simple one: what team are you on – cream or ice-cream?

Lemon and Rhubarb Yoghurt Cake

For those who attempt to be a little more health conscious but still love a little sweetness on their plate, this cake will hit the spot. Perfect for a post-dinner treat, just heat it up in the microwave and you have dessert all week long. It totally counts as one of your five-a-day fruit servings for the day…

Matt Preston’s Self-Sauce Chocolate Pudding

A dessert which is so easy but oh-so-delightful, this will keep everyone happy. Even the title should be reason alone to give this pud a go.

Caramilk Dumplings

These sweet dumplings, made with Caramilk baking chips and cooked in a rich caramel sauce, are the definition of comfort food. Serve them warm, topped with cream and you’ll have the best winter dessert.

Apple and Cinnamon Scroll Custard Pudding

If you’re looking for an easy win, this is the recipe for you! A delicious spin on that old favourite, bread and butter pudding, you only need seven ingredients and 10 minutes to whip this up. Yum!
