Shake Shack’s Frozen Vanilla Custard
This is Shake Shack’s master recipe for their Concretes (dense frozen custards) and milkshakes. It’s tweaked so you can make it at home. A plain base like this is a perfect canvas for an array of toppings. (Or streak them into the pan before you freeze). We love the combination…
Banana “Corks” With Chocolate Fondue
Brandon uses a silicone bouchon or “cork” mold to make these lovely little cakes. Buy the molds online or use a muffin tin, but you’ll get 14 larger cakes instead of 20 bouchons if using a muffin tin.
Calvados Apple & Ricotta Parfait
The apple brandy makes this recipe rich and delicious, but if you prefer not to use alcohol, substitute with apple cider and a drop or two of good-quality vanilla extract.
Fruit Gratiné With Southbrook Framboise Sabayon & Chocolate Sauce
This light dessert can easily make use of whatever fruit is in season. Just look for a balance of flavors and textures and aim for a little more than one cup of fruit per person.
Caramelized Banana Custard With White Chocolate & Hazelnut Crumb
Toronto’s newest tasting menu restaurant, ēst, showcases the diversity of Canadian cuisine through small, artfully-plated fare.

Chai Sticky Toffee Pudding
Try Mary Berg’s recipe for Chai Sticky Toffee Pudding from the cookbook Kitchen Party. Sticky toffee pudding is one of those desserts that I rarely see on a menu. When I do see it, I can’t resist. It’s so darkly sweet, drowned in thick toffee sauce and topped…
Cardamom Panna Cotta
If you can’t freshly grind your cardamom with a mortar and pestle, substitute a half teaspoon of ground cardamom instead.
Trish’s Hello Dolly Squares
“This is my all-time favourite dessert,” says Parts & Labour chef Matty Matheson of his wife Trish’s Hello Dolly squares. “Fresh out of the oven, it’s to die for — a perfect storm of molten chocolate chips, crunchy coconut and graham cracker — but it’s still delicious the next day, too, when the…
Christina Tosi’s Compost Pound Cake
Try this recipe for Compost Pound Cake from Christina Tosi’s cookbook, All About Cake. This cake is an homage to the team of hardbodies at Milk Bar who have been mixing this seemingly odd collection of cookie mixins since November 15, 2008. That’s when we opened the doors to our little…

Chrissy Teigen’s Banana Bread
Try this recipe for Twitter’s (and Uncle Mike’s) Banana Bread from Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook, Cravings: Hungry For More. Yes. This is THE banana bread.

Caramelized Plum Upside-Down Cake
Try this Caramelized Plum Upside-Down Cake recipe from Meghan Markle’s favorite new cookbook, Together: Our Community Cookbook. “As soon as I heard about the Kitchen, I volunteered to help, cooking recipes from my homeland, Algeria. This cake is one my mum used to make. She always said plums are an…
Nutella Babka Bread Pudding
Try this Nutella Babka Bread Pudding recipe from the cookbook The Last Schmaltz. I stand with Elaine Benes (you know, Elaine from Seinfeld) on the great babka debate. Cinnamon babka is a lesser babka than chocolate babka. By a longshot. In this recipe, the sourness of the labneh and the sweetness…
