Springtime desserts have a few key characteristics. They’re light, colorful, delicious, and the good ones feature fruit. Celebrate the season by trying out these four dessert recipes the team of Olympus 7th Street Station gathered.
Easy Strawberry Shortcake Parfaits
The best dessert is one that is easy and quick to make. There’s no Pinterest-perfect finessing to master in these Strawberry Shortcake Parfait cups. You layer all the goodies together and enjoy — colorful, simple, good.
A right-side-up cake is good. An upside-down cake is even better. Try this simple upside-down cake recipe from BonAppetit. The recipe uses cherries for the bottom (or the top?), but feel free to use blueberries or pineapple slices instead.
Banana Pudding Cheesecake
Make dessert better by combining two spring dessert recipes into one. From Southern Life comes this ingenious cheesecake recipe that adds a little banana pudding to the mix. It’s all topped with vanilla wafers, and it’s a dream treat.
Strawberry Lemonade Bars
Lemon bars are a light, refreshing, powdered-sugar-coated delicacy. Add springtime flair by adding strawberry to balance the tart flavors and bring a pop of color to your bars. Food Network has an epic recipe to help you get going.
