It’s dessert time! Yummy! Sweet lovers out there will understand what I am talking about. There comes a time when all you want is a nice plate or bowl of something sweet. It can be cake, or pudding, or pancakes with maple syrup on top! Cookies or brownies, or maybe some hot apple crumble or pie. Delicious! (I’m drooling already!). Desserts and sweets are obviously not something you have all the time, but on those rare occasions you really want to have something you will enjoy.
Microwave dessert recipes are a lifesaver. When you want to enjoy a sweet, you don’t want to spend ages cooking in the kitchen. Most desserts and sweets can be cooked quickly and easily in your microwave oven and some take only a few minutes to prepare.

Sweet Dessert Pies
Sweet dessert pies are an absolute treat. They can be anything from apple pie or cherry pie which can be served warm, to a lemon menigue, cheesecake, or mousse pie which is served chilled. A lot of sweet dessert pies can be made without even using an oven. Microwave or over the stove, prepare, chill and serve.

You may be wanting to serve a sweet dessert after a dinner party, or for a loved one’s birthday. Maybe it’s a special holiday, or perhaps it is just time to treat yourself a little bit. Whether you are serving a big sweet dessert pie on a special occasion, or just making one big cookie for yourself for a treat, you will find that you can probably make your dish in the microwave.
Those who cook sweets a lot will know that it can take a bit of time to cook a cake or cookies in the oven, as well as the checking, and sometimes flipping times. Using the microwave is just so much easier and efficient. You may find that you are slightly more limited by what recipes you can make (just a little bit), but this can be overcome by investing in a convection microwave oven, which does everything a microwave can do, everything an oven can do, and even has a third option which is a mixture of both. So next time you are wanting to indulge in a treat, or serve up a big dessert, remember that it is ok to be a bit lazy too.
