Who doesn’t love sweets? It’s really hard to resist some nice dessert anytime: after meals, while watching tv or when you are on your break during work. Here are some of most loved (or mostly sold) dessert in Britain.



1. Brownie: It is a flat, baked chocolaty dessert square developed in US. You can find brownies nearly everywhere and they are sometimes homemade! Nice to have it with some ice cream or even on its own.


2. Victoria sponge cake: The Victoria sponge, also known as the Victoria sandwich or Victorian cake,  was named after Queen Victoria, who was known to enjoy a slice of the sponge cake with her afternoon tea. The jam and cream are sandwiched between two sponge cakes.


3. Carrot Cake: The cake contains carrots mixed into the batter. The carrot softens in the cooking process, and the cake usually has a soft, dense texture. Can be made in variety of shapes and also include other ingredients such as kirsch, cinnamon, nuts, pineapple or raisins


4. Red Velvet Cake: It is a chocolate cake with either a red, bright red or red-brown colour. It is traditionally prepared as a layer cake topped with cream cheese or cooked roux icing. You can also find it as a cupcake form.


5. Chocolate Cake: Most common and loved cake, a cake made from chocolate and cocoa powder. There are many different types of chocolate cakes, including double chocolate, dark chocolate, black forest cake etc.


6. Doughnut: It is a type of fried dough confectionery. The doughnut is popular in many countries and prepared in various forms. They are usually deep-fried from a flour dough, and typically either ring-shaped or without a hole, and often filled.


7. Banoffee Pie: It’s an English dessert pie made from bananas, cream and toffee (made from boiled condensed milk, or dulce de leche), combined either on a pastry base or one made from crumbled biscuits and butter.


8. Tiramisu: It is a popular coffee-flavoured Italian custard dessert. It is made of ladyfingers dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese, flavoured with cocoa.


9. Eclair: It is an oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with a cream and topped with icing. The dough is typically piped into an oblong shape and baked until it is crisp and hollow inside. Once cool, the pastry is then filled with a vanilla, coffee or chocolate-flavoured, or with whipped cream, or chiboust cream. 


10. Cheesecake: It is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese. The bottom layer it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed digestive biscuits, graham crackers, pastry, or sponge cake. It is also flavoured with fruit (lemon/blueberries) or chocolate.
