If there's one thing I love more than a really good dessert made from scratch, it's a really good dessert I can throw together on a weeknight with no fuss and without a sink full of dirty mixing bowls. Turns out it's not actually such a big ask. Save layer cakes for a day when you're in the mood for a project and have time on your side. Instead, go for one of these 17 sweet treats that were made with your midweek dessert craving in mind.

Cakes and Quick Breads

In case you need more proof that cake is well within your reach on a weeknight, these recipes will show you the way again and again. From classic cakes to quick breads, each of these recipes requires just a single bowl and come together pretty quickly.

Brownies, Bars, and Cookies

You deserve a fresh batch of rich, chocolatey brownies no matter what day of the week it is. And if it happens to be Tuesday night, well then it should be even easier for you to make that happen (preferably with the simplest cleanup possible). Grab your mixing bowl and let the countdown to something sweet begin.

No-Bake Desserts

Not only do you not need more than a single bowl (food processor bowl included) to make a totally irresistible midweek dessert, but you also don't even need to turn on the oven!
