Southern Desserts


If you’re like us, there are very few things a sweet treat can’t fix. They can make you smile after a hard day, provide comfort when you need it, give you a quick sugar high, help you make new friends—we can go on and on! And being on the Deen Team, we’ve picked up a few southern dessert recipes that really can do it all.

While a classic chocolate chip cookie is great, there’s something extra comforting about the traditional dessert recipes of the South, like jelly roll cake, chess pie, hummingbird cake, and pound cake. So whether you’re hosting friends for coffee, welcoming new neighbors, or heading to a potluck, treat yourself (and others) to something delicious.

If you’re looking for some classic Southern dessert recipes—we’re talking old Southern, passed-through-the-generations recipes—we’ve got plenty for you here. And if you’re on the hunt for Southern desserts with a newer twist (we’re looking at you, Not Yo’ Mama’s Banana Pudding recipe!), we’ve got those too.

Heavens to Betsy, if you haven’t tried these Southern dessert recipes yet, what are you waiting for?
