6 Easy One-Bowl Dessert Recipes

There's chocolate cake, carrot cake, double choc muffins, and more.

Most of the time, the best recipes are those which are easy and fuss-free. We're talking simple tomato pasta, avocado on toast and cheese toasties.

The same goes for desserts. While a skillet brownie layered with cookie dough, chocolate biscuits and chocolate sauce is mouthwateringly delicious, sometimes you just want a regular, easy-to-make brownie.

With this in mind, here are six easy one-bowl dessert recipes -- no fancy mixers involved, no melting ingredients in a pot, and no 'mix dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another'. Just tasty desserts, without the fuss.

1. One-bowl whiskey chocolate fudge cake

If you want a rich, decadent and fudgy chocolate cake, try this one-bowl recipe. Plus it's spiked with a bit of Irish whiskey, so you can't go wrong.

2. Double chocolate chip muffins

What's better than chocolate chip desserts? Double chocolate chip. This one-bowl recipe is not only easy to make, but the muffins are perfectly fluffy, tender and crumbly on the inside. And they're vegan and gluten free.

3. One-bowl vanilla cupcakes for two

If you can't be trusted around a tray of cupcakes, or simply just want a small batch, make these one-bowl vanilla cupcakes for two. They're light, fluffy and super customisable -- want to add fruit, frosting or chocolate chips? Go for it.

4. Double chocolate espresso cookies

For when you need a chocolate and caffeine hit at the same time, here are one-bowl double chocolate espresso cookies. Basically, a mocha in cookie form. So. Delicious.

5. One-bowl carrot cake

Although it might look complicated, this one-bowl carrot cake is actually easy to make. The result is a fluffy, moist and perfectly sweet carrot cake, which also happens to be gluten free and vegan.

6. Fudgy flourless brownies

These one-bowl brownies are super fudgy, rich and sweet, and made with just seven ingredients -- in under 30 minutes. No need to melt chocolate over a bain-marie or separate wet ingredients from dry.
