For many people, a meal will never be complete without a fantastic dessert. However, not many of us are prepared to create desserts from scratch, because we fear that we might not be able to perfect the process, so buying store-bought desserts is the option we have left. Good thing there are these food processor dessert recipes that are very easy to follow, and easily accessible online.
A Sample Food Processor Dessert Recipes
Food processors allow many people to create delicious and heartwarming desserts from scratch. Through this single kitchen tool, making desserts can be so much fun, and exciting as well. Not to mention, people who are watching over their diet and weight can benefit from making their own desserts too, since there are a lot of healthy recipes that you can try, like the ones that are low in sugar and calories.
If you have a food processor at home, you can easily create desserts of all kinds. In fact, there are a lot of recipes to try, and a lot of them do not have complicated steps, so you will not have a hard time creating delicious desserts that you can be proud of.
To give you an example, here is a quick and very easy to do pumpkin bread, which is perfect for this Halloween season.
Here’s what you need:
- 1 ½ cup of wheat flour (whole grain)
- ½ cup of oat flour (whole grain)
- 1 tbs baking soda
- 1 tbs cinnamon
- ½ tbs salt (preferably sea salt)
- ¼ tbs nutmeg
- 1 clove
- 2 tbs mace
- 1 tbs allspice
- ½ cup oil (preferably coconut oil)
- 2 eggs (large)
- 2 cups of processed pumpkin (puree)
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 1 tbs molasses
- ½ cup of coarse chopped nuts (walnuts preferably)
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Also, prepare your food processor which you have. I have used my Cuisinart FP-14 Elite Food Processor.
To create this wonderful food processor recipe, what you have to do is to mix all dry ingredients well, and then slowly add the wet ingredients portion by portion. For example, when adding the eggs, do it one egg at a time. The same process goes when it comes to the pumpkin. Add the pureed pumpkin portion by portion, to make sure that it is well blended. Try not to process your ingredients too much, because doing this will just affect the consistency of your batter for the bread.
Once done, get your greased pan, and pour over your mixture. Top it with nuts before baking. Let it bake for at least 1 hour and 15 minutes. Poke a toothpick at the center of the bread. If the toothpick is clean after poking, it indicates that your bread is cooked through not only on the outside but on the inside as well.
Let your bread cool on a cooling rack before slicing. You can serve this bread with cream cheese, jam, or anything you want.
The benefits of using a food processor in creating food processor dessert recipes are endless. In just a short amount of time, you can already serve your family with homemade desserts that are made from scratch and are made with love.
