Desserts bring the sweetness of life to the table in all its endless varieties.
From the beauty of our annual white cake to the fun of pies, bars, and muffins, desserts are often a favorite part of any meal—or any day. Over fifty years at Southern Living, we've had many desserts that have been reader favorites, and it is always a pleasure to share sweet delights with you. From Grilled Peach Cobbler or Ginger-Peach Shortbread Cobbler to Strawberry Dream Cake, and from Hummingbird Cake to Brennan's Bananas Foster, it would be incredible to sample all of these sensational delights.
What we love about desserts is that they can cap off the perfect meal, or make a brunch, afternoon tea, or celebration special. So whether you're yearning for the casual simplicity of Chewy Peanut Bars, or baking a classic Coconut Chiffon Cake, the flavors of the South come together in these wonderful desserts. That Chocolate-Mayonnaise Cake, and the Triple-Chocolate Buttermilk Pound Cake, will show you that the proof's in the pudding—or the cake, as it were.
