  • Please Help! Need an ethnic dessert receipe that's quick and easy!

    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. :)

    Thanks!

    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.

    Here's an even simpler dessert. Plain yogurt with honey drizzled over it. It's Greek and Middle East.
