Today is National Dessert Day. In my haste to churn out a blog post, I overlooked the spelling, and wrote an article about the Top Five Deserts in the world. An embarrassing but fortunately correctable mistake. I didn’t want to throw out all the research I did on deserts, though, so I decided to combine the two topics in a post I’m calling The Top Five Best Desserts To Eat In The Desert.
Cheesecake In The Sahara Desert
Cheesecake is the perfect dessert to enjoy in the Sahara Desert, the largest subtropical desert in the world. The addition of fresh strawberries can take this dish to extraordinary heights, much like the heights of the sand dunes in the Sahara Desert, which can reach as high as 590 feet.
Banana Split In The Arabian Desert
This classic dessert features a banana sliced lengthwise with scoops of ice cream in the middle. If you split The Arabian Desert down the middle you wont find any ice cream, but you will find Rud’al-Khali, the largest continuous body of sand in the world. Whipped cream, cherries, and chocolate sauce are some of the many toppings that can be added to a classic banana split to make it more decadent.
Apple Pie In The Mojave Desert
The most American dessert, apple pie, is great to enjoy in the most American desert, The Mojave. Filled with a variety of delicious apples, apple pie needs to bake for approximately two hours at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, considerably higher than the temperatures seen in The Mojave Desert, which can typically exceed 120 degrees Fahrenheit in the long summer months.
Sticky Toffee Pudding In The Great Victoria Desert
Sticky toffee pudding is an English dessert made with sponge cake, toffee sauce, and vanilla ice cream. It’s extremely popular in Australia, unlike The Great Victoria Desert, which is in Australia, but is not very popular, as its 134,000 square miles have been the site of several nuclear weapons tests.
Chocolate Brownies In The Gobi Desert
Chocolate brownies are a cross between a cookie and a cake, and can be enjoyed either hot or cold, much like the Gobi Desert, which due to its altitude of 3,000 to 5,000 feet above sea level, can experience extremes of temperature ranging from -40 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to 122 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.
