For that perfect Sunday afternoon sweet treat, check out these wholesome desserts to takeaway, for a true taste of home cooking.
1. Homemade Bread & Butter Pudding
The hugely popular Stillorgan Orchard bistro celebrates Irish ingredients and local produce and its dessert menu is full of all those homemade desserts that your mother used to make. The cherry on top is their Homemade Bread & Butter Pudding, complete with indulgent double cream. It goes great with an after-dinner coffee or even a mug of hot chocolate!
2. Deep Dish Apple Pie
We're so impressed with Stillorgan Orchard's desserts that we had to feature them twice. Their Deep Dish Apple Pie has an incredible amount of filling, with fresh and tart apples packed beneath the homemade butter crust pastry and topped with cream. There's an American feel to the Deep Dish-style pie, with more baked apple goodness than you can shake a stick at!
3. Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding
Sit back and indulge with a homemade bowl of Warm Sticky Toffee Pudding from the guys at Cinnamon in Ranelagh. There's something about the sticky, gooey toffee mixture on top of the moist pudding that'll take you back to much-loved school dinners. They also do a range of homemade tarts for something a little lighter, with homely combinations such as Pear & Almond and Lemon Curd on the menu. But, topped with thick, warm custard, it's the Sticky Toffee that's one of our favourite rustic desserts and we just know you're gonna love it.
4. Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding from Carluccio's
Very few people do desserts better than the Italians and you can't go wrong with Carluccio's indulgent Chocolate Bread and Butter Pudding. This warm, moist pudding is a perfect mid-afternoon treat curled up on the sofa and is served with vanilla cream to cut through the richness. If you're mad about your coffee, they also do a very authentic Italian Tiramisu, with Savoiardi biscuits soaked in strong espresso coffee, topped with mascarpone and chocolate shavings. Whether you go British or Italian at Carluccio's, you know you're in for a treat that's both traditional and comforting.
