In this post, I share 3 quick and tasty recipe ideas for Eid desserts. Sometimes it is chaotic on Eid with family and friends visiting, and you just need a quick dessert to make things easier. I hope the following recipes give you some ideas 🙂

These desserts require no baking and couldn’t be simpler.

Custard and Peach Flan

Ingredients required:

  • Sponge Flan Case
  • One sachet Instant Custard Mix (~80g)
  • 300ml Double Cream
  • 100ml Boiling Water
  • Tin of Peach Slices
  • Choco Writer Tube (optional)


  • Add the custard mix and boiling water to a mixing bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the double cream and whisk well until thick and creamy.
  • Pour the custard/cream mixture into the flan and spread evenly. Chill for one hour (or until the mixture is stiffer).
  • Decorate the flan with peach slices and write an Eid message on the centre of the flan.
  • Enjoy 🙂

Fresh Fruit and Cream Cake

Ingredients required:

  • Madeira Cake x 2
  • 300ml Double Cream
  • 50g Icing Sugar
  • Strawberries (sliced)


  • Cut the Madeira cakes to ensure that they are the same size, and stack one on top of the other.
  • Whisk the double cream with icing sugar in a large bowl until the mixture is thick and forms soft peaks.
  • Spread a layer of the cream topping over the top of one cake, and top with the strawberry slices.
  • Spread a layer of cream over the bottom of the other cake, and sandwich the strawberries by placing the cake on top of the other cake.
  • Cover the entire cake with the cream topping in an even layer. Decorate with the strawberry slices.
  • Serve and enjoy 🙂

Fruit Cocktail Delight

Ingredients required:

  • Fruit Cocktails tins x 2 (in light syrup)
  • Digestive Biscuits
  • Evaporated Milk
  • Meringue Nests


  • Using a sieve, drain the fruit cocktail tins into a bowl to separate the fruit cocktail from the light syrup.
  • Break the digestive biscuits into large pieces and create a layer of the broken biscuits in a large serving bowl.
  • Pour some of the light syrup over the biscuits (make sure you don’t add too much syrup as it will make the biscuits soggy).
  • Add an even layer of fruit cocktail.
  • Pour over some evaporated milk.
  • Break up the meringue nests, and add a layer over the fruit cocktail.
  • Repeat the above process until the serving bowl is filled to the top.
  • Serve and enjoy 🙂
