Dessert Free For All -- Open Forum

I am obligated to prepare a dessert tomorrow evening for a function and I'm undecided on what to take. I'm tempted to take chocolate-pecan-praline dipped bacon, but that might be a little too random. And, the ho ho cake has already made the rounds, so I need something fresh. If you have a great recipe, please share it in the comment section. Thanks!

My favorite can't think of anything else, don't want to put much effort forth dessert is some sort of cake, some sort of berries and whipped cream or ice cream or both.

I like some down home banana pudding too.

There's a recipe foating around out there on a packaged graham cracker crust for blackberry cheese pie with ganache topping that is very tasty too. Try the Keebler website I think.

Oatmeal Chocolate Cake

1 c quick oats
1 3/4 c boiling water
1/2 c butter
1 c packed brown sugar
1 c white sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 (1-oz) squares unsweetened baking chocolate
1 3/4 c flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 (12-oz) package chocolate chips
1 c chopped pecans (optional)

Place oats in a bowl. Pour boiling water over oats and let stand 10 minutes. In a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Remove pan from heat. Add brown and white sugar to butter and stir until well blended. Add eggs and oatmeal mixture. In a separate bowl heat baking chocolate squares in microwave just until melted. Add to mixture. Blend dry ingredients together and add to mixture. Stir in half of the chocolate chips. Pour mixture into greased 9x13-inch pan. Sprinkle top with remaining chocolate chips and nuts if desired. Bake at 350*F. for about 30 minutes. Makes 12 servings.

*Note: I really liked it with the pecans on top. It gave it a nice touch.

My stand by is a bunt cake. Can't go wrong w/that....I will use a Sandra Lee cheat and use a canned frosting and I usually take half of the can, mix it w/milk till it becomes the right consistency to drizzle on the cake....
