12 Desserts That Don’t Require Flour

12 desserts that don’t require flour. Because we want to remind you of all the soufflés, cheesecakes, brownies, puddings, panna cottas, creme caramels, and more that you can still make and that are just as satisfying as the more customary flour-full recipes. And they come together with ease. When life hands you flour shortages, make these. #lookforthegood

Double Chocolate Soufflés

Individual dark chocolate soufflés that are gluten-free with a little grown-up sass in the form of a whiskey splash in the batter. Recipe courtesy of David Lebovitz.
Recipe

Flourless Almond Cake

A French classic that's crisp and crunchy on the outside, dense and chewy on the inside, and flourless through and through.
Recipe

Gluten-Free Brownies

These are, quite frankly, as fudgy and rich as the real deal. Despite being flourless. Swear. Make a batch and see if anyone can tell the difference.
Recipe

Coconut Panna Cotta

"The easiest panna cotta I have made." "Absolutely delicious." "Very dangerous." That's what folks are saying about this dessert.

Wine Poached Pears

How to explain these wine poached pears? "Divine elegance" comes to mind. Also, easy, vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, healthy, and lovely.
Recipe

Pumpkin Pots de Crème

These fancy-sounding desserts are essentially creamy custards that come together with very little time or effort from half-and-half, brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs, and warm spices. So good you're gonna want them year round.
Recipe

Creme Caramel

Similar to flan in its delicate texture, this classic creme caramel is as simple as it is sophisticated. You'd expect nothing less from the French, yes?

Avocado Chocolate Pudding

This recipe is easy, elegant, dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo-friendly, kid-approved, and vegan. You're welcome.
Recipe

Riz au Lait ~ French Rice Pudding

Riz au lait is another way of saying French rice pudding. So gosh darn easy and impossible to stop eating, it's quite possibly the thing we love most about the French.
Recipe

Portuguese Tea Flan

Creamy custard is infused with tea for an unusual take on the classic Portuguese flan. The classic caramel topping gives the dessert its depth and sweetness.
Recipe

No-Bake Cheesecake

We're hearing from folks who've tried this cheesecake that it's "unbelievable" just how spectacular it is for being no-bake and no-fuss. We couldn't agree more.
