Our Favorite One-Pot Dessert Recipes

We’re going to let you in on a little secret: It’s possible to make all of the cookies, cakes, fruit desserts, and ice cream dishes you love without spending hours on prep and cleanup. Here, we’re sharing one-pot desserts that are made using time-saving techniques, minimal ingredients, and revolve around easy clean up, and they offer all of the things you love about our one-pot recipes just with a sweet twist. But because desserts are slightly different than savory meals, we had to bend our one-pot rules ever so slightly: While these recipes do feature simplified prep, streamlined ingredients, and just one cooking vessel—or, in the case of the Coconut Water Granita that’s shown here, one vessel for freezing—in some cases we may require an additional bowl to mix everything together. Still, we match that extra dish to wash with smart techniques and tricks that ensure you’re able to enjoy your sweet treat faster than usual. 

Not only are these some of our easiest desserts, but they are also some of the test kitchen’s favorite recipes. Baking chocolate chip cookies in a skillet isn’t just for show: The contrasting texture of a tender, gooey center with a crispy outer crust makes for one irresistible cookie. If you are hankering for chocolate cake, we suggest the Busy-Day Cake. Its batter is made in one fell swoop right in the baking dish—no bowl necessary. It’s  simple to prepare, but the end result is so delicious. Then there’s our easy churros, which don’t require a fryer or even the time to prepare a batter. All you’ll need to do is MacGyver store-bought puff pastry into cinnamon-coated twirls. Are you craving the decadence of a flaky pastry? Bake our four-ingredient cherry crisp; it proves that store-bought phyllo dough is the only way to go.

Should you prefer something a bit lighter for dessert, make our simple citrus salad with pomegranate, coconut, and honey—it will have you wondering why you don’t eat fruit for dessert more often. You could also turn up the heat and roast peaches with vanilla or broil pineapple with cinnamon for juicy warm preparations to serve alongside creamy, vanilla ice cream.

Fruity, chocolatey, buttery, creamy, or crispy—no matter the craving, we have an accessible and tasty one-pot dessert recipe to match.
