Our youth group at church is having a cultural/ethnic night tomorrow evening and everyone has to bring a different ethnic dish. My DD is not a great cook, she can do simple things - - we need an idea for a simple, easy dessert. - - doesn't matter what culture - - just NOT american. :)
What are the seeds that are chewed after a meal in India - caraway or something else? Don't think the Japanese eat much in the way of dessert....bring nothing & tell them it's a Japanese custom - can't be easier. Do the English consider jellies dessert? Isn't that just Jell-O or biscuits, aka cookies? Go to google, ask or bing.com & type in easy desserts from other countries & see what you get.
Love google....got this link from a high school with recipes from other countries:
My grandson did a report on Egypt several years ago and had to come up with a food served in the country. The kids were to bring ethnic food to share. I googled Egyptian food and came up with a rice pudding that called for fresh apricots. Not having any fresh on hand I used canned, cut them up small and let me tell you...it was a big hit with everyone. Or I also thought of Flan from the Mexicn culture. I think both would be fairly easy to make and transport.
How about a Tres Leches Cake. It's south american. I have seen recipes using cake mixes if she can do that.
Here's a really easy recipe that say's it's similar to a German dessert.
I have eaten Tres Leches cake in Nicaragua & it is delicious!
This looks really easy...
How about panna cotta? You can google it and find several recipes. Here's one from Allrecipes:http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/panna-cotta/Detail.aspx
Serve pineapple rings and tell them it's Polynesian.
I don't often get asked to define irony, but when I do, I always say,
"Why, yes. Yes, I AM a Field Editor for Taste of Home."
Flan and it comes in a box now at the grocery store. It is considered mexican and tastes like custard.
Just wondering what you ended up making!
This is a little, late but I second the pinapple idea just cut it into chunks put the on skewers and sprinkle a little toasted ground cumin or red pepper flakes, That would be Malaysian. :)
When the tides of life are against you
And the current upsets your boat
Don't think of things that might have been
Just lay on your back and float
