My Mother used to make the Chocolate Roll recipe by Dione Lucas, for me as a treat!

It has TWELVE eggs, so it was for very special occasions only, read: Birthday!

I remember there wasn't enough Cocoa for it one time, but undaunted, Mum rang several Deli's til she found one stocking Van Houten Cocoa. It was in a suburb 50 minutes' away! So off we went on our cocoa adventure, across many suburbs!
Bear in mind this was in the late '50's-early '60's!

It's such a magnificent recipe.
I tried to make it once, as a 'new' wife to impress husband. It turned out OK, but certainly NOT as good as Mum could make it!

Mum was THE best Cordon Bleu cook. She would've loved to have known that my son is a Head Chef. Her Mother was a great Country cook.
I adored cooking, still do. My 'Dinner Nights' were never declined by any invitee!
And, are still spoken about by various couples', some 30 years' later!
wow, your Mum really took such pride to travel that far....it gave me a big smile as I read that :) love it.....

Thanks, jonaj, yes my Mum was an extraordinary woman, in many ways. I miss her everyday. She as only 63 when she died, of cancer, exactly one month after I married.

I remember one night, several friends' & I were going to a Winter Ball, & Mum organised a Pre-Ball meal for them. It was a banquet fit for the Queen! Started with Soup, then Entree, Main Course, & Dessert, Tea or Coffee, with Cheese Board! The variety of dishes was marvellous, cooked to perfection.
The Dinner Table had a beautiful Irish Linen Lemon Tablecloth, Silver Cutlery, Table Decorations which Mum had made in the colours' of the Ball's Theme.
Mum had gone to just SO much 'trouble', but that was her!
This was 1971, & am still in contact with those friends' who still speak of that Dinner, in glowing terms!
We did have a fabulous time at the Ball!

I actually have a problem to name just one, being a sweet tooth.

Perhaps my own chocolate mousse that I make with Lindt chocolate, eggs separated, with sponge fingers around the edge.

However, there are so many I love that it is difficult to name one - or perhaps Sweetened Condensed milk if that could be called a dessert!
by Finy
Gosh. Hard to pick a real favourite but I think home made apple pie with freshly whipped cream. For cake it is my home made fig and rhubarb cake made with almond meal and drizzled with honey before baking.
I've never heard of a cake with those ingredients, sounds interesting
by reali
Hi Reali. Yes, it's an interesting cake. I'd sometimes bake it for the guys I worked with and they loved it. It's a dense cake but once you've tried it I'm sure you'd enjoy it.
by helga
Yes...its... Applepiechocdonutcustardtartjellytartpumpkinpiepecanpielamington. (If there's no gaps, then it's one sweet)!
Sweet, dude. This image came to mind when I read your response: http://showbizgeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Screen-Shot-2013-04-29-at-19.02.25.png LOL!

My favourite pudding is rice pudding, but I am not sure what my favourite dessert is. The one in the picture looks like it would have a good chance of winning though!
Hot Apple Crumble with Ice cream!

It is soooooooooooo wonderful!
Oh! jonaj, do you like 'Rhubarb & Apple Crumble', too?

by donjo
I do! :)
by jonaja
I can't pick just one thing. I love anything with chocolate in it, but I also love apple pie.
That NY Cheesecake

My VERY favourite is...TIRAMISU..Once they served 3 different ones on a cruise, but the 1 I've loved most, & I've tried a few, is at Rita's, in Richmond, Melbourne, Vic, It was heavenly. I've had it twice there now, & I hope the chef who makes them, is still there when we got back, later in 2016.
by Miro
Unfortunately, I didn't make it back there in 2016, so I hope to go back this year, 2017! (They also serve wonderful pizzas as well!)
by Miro
We did return to Rita's in March '17 for my husband's birthday. The tiramisu was NOT on the menu anymore, but the chef who make it was still working there! I was so disappointed.
by Miro
I'm sorry Miro, but I ate it . . . ALL . . .!! LOL

Being totally honest,I canNOT just name ONE favourite dessert!! I don't eat dessert every evening after dinner, My mother used to make a spectacularly buttery Crumble topping which she would use on top of many fruits when in season down in Victoria where I grew up;,and the fresh blackberries which we'd pick as kids from up on the hill close to home,definitely made a scrumptious dessert!! Her apple with cinnamon and sultanas was pretty darn good too!! I must admit that I am now rather partial to sorbet as well,whether home made or the fabulous varieties made by Weiss here in Qld!!
Baked New York Cheesecake every time!
My home made white chocolate raspberry cheese cake.
tough one... and it constantly changes. I like lamingtons as they are low...ish in calories
simply plain lemon cheesecake or a baked cheesecake
I am not sure. My wife makes a lot of different things but I think it may be her cheesecake that does it for me.
Lemon bars. Hands down! I make them myself and eat way too many at a time!
Old fashioned Apple Pie and cream
How can anyone just have ONE favourite dessert?! I could go on and on and list pages and pages of desserts!

But if I HAD TO choose a few it would be creme brulee, chocolate fondant, souffle, lemon meringue tart and a good pavlova!!!
Not a chance. The sweet tooth suggests there are many, and the waistline throws in its support as well
I wait all year to taste Christmas pudding (steamed English recipe) with brandy butter so that probably tops any desserts I could eat during the year.

Oh so cruel to ask for choice. Dessert itself is my all time favourite. Dessert and cakes and chocolates. I have a serious sweet tooth.
To name one thing and one thing only would be absolutely impossible.

A L L.
by Rice
I must be blind Rice. I don't see any TIRAMISU on your lovely, Foods from Around the World' picture.
by Miro
Cheesecake for sure !!
by BK
Tiramisu, my all time favourite.
by sns
YES, mine also sns, you may have read! Just in case you may not know, Aldi sell 1, (on the top shelf of their desserts, in the fridge dept,) for $4.99 & it would serve 4-6 people. I know it's NOT the ants pants of TIRAMISU's not it's ok for us to eat!!
by Miro
No I couldn't! But anything with caramel would definitely be in the running...
Would that be SALTED caramel, Poppy?
by Miro
NO! No, no, no! Just plain, old-fashioned caramel. I want sweet - why would I want salt in it?? This fad is a mystery to me...
