what are some good dessert ideas?

As it mentions, I need some dessert ideas. it gets annoying when all you ever eat for dessert is muffins so I'm starting to get the itch for trying something different. the ingredients doesn't matter, I can pick up pretty much anything from town on any given day since I work 6 days a week. just giv me a recipe, an approximate price and how many people it would serve. thanks

    Any kind of quick bread. Make them from scratch, or from a box. Banana nut bread, cranberry/orange/nut, and others. 6-8 servings. also pumpkin or zucchini bread.

    Make a cake. gingerbread cake, blueberry buckle, both feed 9.

    Make cookie bars. Magic cookie bars, or toffee bars, lemon or lime bars. Chocolate cookie, brown sugar, blond, or chocolate brownies. some of these feed 9, some 12 or more.

    Make a cake. something fancy like carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, or pineapple upside down cake.

    Sorry, I can't talk to you about price, I do not know where you live, and can't tell how expensive your food prices are. And some of these recipes use a fraction of a tin of spices, unable to convert that into a $ amount.

    a delicious apple crumble!

    2- 4 people

    2 cups plain white flour

    2 cups of dark brown muscavado sugar ( save 1 cup for later in cooking)

    half a tub of butter

    4 cooking apples

    1.put all the cups of flour into a bowl with 1 cup of muscavado sugar and the all of the butter.

    2. mix all of this with your fingers until the flour becomes crumbly like bread crumbs.

    3. leave the mixture on the side

    4. peel the apples and cut them into flat slab slices discarding the seeds and middle ,the slices dont have to be too thin.

    5. put apples in a saucepan and add the last cup of muscavado sugar and cook and stir for 10 mins until apples are soft.

    6. add cooked apples to a baking dish,then get the crumble mixture you made earlier and put it on top until the apples are covered. dont press down the mixture .

    7. put oven on 425 f /GAS MARK 7/220 C and put apple crumble in the middle shelf.

    8. cook for 10 minutes and the top should be brown , if not add more muscavado.

    serving suggestion:

    serve with cream or icecream. add cinnamon or vanilla in cooking if desired.

    go for the cheaper brand of flour .

    muscavado would be the most expensive ,a little more than white or brown sugar. $3.27 approx
