I have the chocolate cake recipe. I will post it.

Deep Dark Chocolate Cake

The cheesecake recipe I will have to beg from my friend, but it won't be a problem. It might take me a bit, she has been sick with the flu.

My favorite dessert is ice cream anyday! My favorite is Ben & Jerry's cherry garcia. I'm glad it's really expensive or i'd eat it everyday!

It was so hard to pick just one as a favorite! The most recent dessert I had was a Tiramisu, so the memory was still fresh! and it WAS a fabulous one as well! However, I must mention this crockery chocolate pudding cake my mom made once...rich and hot and heavenly! I think my diet is fixin' to take a vacation!!!

My favorite would have to be fresh baked cookies (or brownies) - right out of the oven. A close second would be a good italian pastry. Unfortunately, there aren't many desserts I wouldn't eat though.

I can't help it, I'm an Aussie, my ultimate dessert is Pavlova, which is a large marshmallow centred meringue topped with whipped cream and in my book, strawberries, kiwi fruit and passion fruit.

It's also great with low fat icecream or sorbet instead of the cream, so it's a great low fat choice (full of sugar though!!!)

Also a great fruit salad, or even just strawberries sprinkled with cointreau and a dash of clotted cream on top.

I'm a sucker for places that have assorted mini pate a choux type desserts like cream puffs and eclairs. I'll go back just for dessert!

i couldn't see fruit as a choice- fruit for dessert i think is the best not too heavy to finish a meal but sweet enough to satisfy. being in australia our summer is producing some amazing peaches, white peaches, dounut peaches (yes there a real variety)
i poach the peaches in a simple sugar syrup flavoured with fresh ginger, ginger lemon grass tea and a cinnamon stick- serve with labna (lebanese strained yogurt and almond praline bloody beautiful mate

I really love a nice vanilla bean panna cotta with a nice berry sauce...

Or poached pears w/ fresh vanilla whip cream. (real whip cream... none of this "cool whip" garbage)

Mmmmmm.
