There are a couple days a year we celebrate the men in our lives so we've compiled a list of our Gr8 guys' favorite desserts to share with you. These are all man approved desserts from the recipes in our files.
The men I know aren't wild about cake, most of them love a fruit dessert. In fact, all four of our Gr8 Guys prefer one of our fruity desserts to any other choice.
Our Gr8 Guys' Top Desserts
Cherry Pie and Apple Pie are two top contenders. My dad LOVED an apple pie, that's what we made for his birthday every year. Debbie's Phil also puts apple and cherry pies at the top of his list. (Maybe it's the February birthday boys?!)
And Vince puts the pies, both flavors, in 3rd place on his list... with a scoop (or two!) of ice cream. (Keep reading for his top dessert choice.)
Key Lime Pie has always been in the top five on Vince's list, I was actually surprised that it's not #1! (But what do I know, we've only been married for 3 decades. 😂)
And Joel's favorite is Kyle's Red, White, and Blueberry Cheesecake Mousse. The combo of fresh berries with the creamy mousse is truly unbeatable.
And speaking of fruit desserts, when I asked Vince for his favorite he said, "fresh fruit salad with whipped cream." I said, "what?!?!" And he stuck to it, adding on the Key Lime Pie and Apple and Cherry Pies.
I've never served my Fresh Fruit Salad for dessert with whipped cream, but I guess I should start!
So you can see from our guys' choices that fruit desserts are really popular among men.
If your guy likes a boozy dessert, we have some delicious choices:
- Pineapple Rum Cake - A top 20 dessert
- Pecan Bourbon Pie with Chocolate - we had to sneak some chocolate in somewhere!
- Tiramisu - My son-in-law's favorite (not fruit!)
- Appleton Rum Cake - Also a top 20 dessert (rum is popular!)
- Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce - This is a Gr8 choice because you can make the Whiskey Sauce and also a second sauce with no alcohol for the kids.
What are the man approved desserts in your family? Please drop a note in the comments, we'd love to hear from you!
