5 Most Popular Desserts To Make For The Holidays

A holiday is a perfect time to relax as you experience the season’s true meaning by enjoying family time. But there is no better way to enjoy family time than sharing delicious meals.

However, the fun is never complete without a mouth-watering dessert to finish a delicious dinner.

There are thousands of desserts, but the flan recipe should never miss your holiday delicacies. The sweet, smooth,  rich, and creamy dessert brings families together and has everyone asking for more.

Here are 5-holiday desserts(including flan) you should try.

1.   Flan

You can enjoy flan in different flavors (mango, coconut, chocolate, orange) and textures. However, a classic flan recipe is the creamy, delicious caramel. The ingredients needed include eggs, sugar, condensed milk, and vanilla extract.


Step 1: On a heated skillet, add sugar, set over medium heat, and stir to dissolve. Keep stirring as

 the sugar starts to turn brown and thicken. Continue stirring until all the sugar has melted into a golden-brown caramel.

Step 2: Pour the caramel evenly on a cake pan. Pour as fast as possible to prevent the caramel from solidifying before you finish. Set the caramel aside to cool and harden.

Step 3: Whip the sweetened condensed milk, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract until they

 combine evenly. Do not over-whisk to avoid adding too much air to the mixture.

Step 4: Pour the custard mixture into the caramel-lined pan and tightly cover the pan with an

 aluminum foil.

Step 5: Set the pan inside a sizable baking dish and pour water into the baking dish until it

comes halfway up the flan pan. Bake the flan at three hundred and fifty degrees Fahrenheit for seventy-five minutes.

Step 6: Remove the lid from the flan pan and allow it to cool before removing it from the water bath. After that, put it in the fridge to chill for four hours or overnight.

Step 7: Take off the pan’s cover or aluminum foil and use a knife to release the pan carefully


Step 8: Set a sizable dish or platter on top of the pan, then quickly and carefully turn them

 over. Pull up the pan. If the flan doesn’t come out immediately, set it down and give it time to settle.

2.   Apple Pie

Apple Pie is a traditional American dessert perfect for the holidays. The fruit-filled pastry is made with cinnamon, apple brown sugar, and an appealing egg-washed lattice crust. A warm pie goes well with a melted scoop of vanilla over the top.

3.   Fruit Cake

A fruit cake is a magical dessert for a holiday. It combines a miracle of sugary dried fruits and nuts carefully baked inside a cake.  Baking the cake brings out an adventurous mood and lots of laughter.

4.   Ginger Cake

A light, fluffy, delicious ginger cake is perfect for setting the holiday mood rolling. The cake delivers exquisite flavors, a nice texture, a crisp and crunchy exterior, and well-balanced cinnamon and freshly grated ginger. More than one slice will be needed, especially when served with vanilla cream.

5.   Chocolate Truffles

Think of chocolate truffles if you are looking forward to indulging in a creamy and decadent treat. The sky is the limit when making chocolate truffles, as there are endless possibilities. You can dress the desserts in cookies, nuts, candy, festive sprinkles, and cocoa powder.
