One Pan Desserts are the perfect solution for easy entertaining, or just a special weeknight treat. What these desserts lack in dishes and decoration they make up for with their easy prep and delicious taste!
One Pan Desserts
From dessert lasagnas to icebox cakes, one pan desserts can be no-bake or traditional puddings or cakes. They often have multiple layers – but sometimes they are perfect with just two. What they all have in common is they make enough to feed quite a few people and are definite crowd-pleasers. This and their portability make them perfect for potlucks, parties, barbecues and holidays!
Many one pan desserts taste even better when prepared the day before, making it a low-fuss option for entertaining or bringing to a potluck.
