10 Favorite Desserts for Mother’s Day

by Alli

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Do you have big plans? Whether you have big plans or little plans, you’ll want to include one of my favorite desserts.

My family always comes over to celebrate Mother’s Day at my house and it’s the one day that I don’t play hostess. What? Instead, my kids all get together and plan the menu, cook, etc. They always include one of my favorite desserts.

Top 10 Favorite Desserts for Mother's Day

At my house, Mother’s Day is all about good food, good times and family. Oh, and presents. Let’s not forget about the presents. Just kidding about the presents. Kinda. Sorta. Maybe. But I do have to say that my kids and grandkids give the best gifts.

If you’re hosting your mom for Mother’s Day, here are some wonderful dessert ideas. Because, let’s face it, for me, it’s all about that dessert. This is one day I splurge and never think twice about it. I’ll start my diet tomorrow!

I’ve been making all of the following desserts for years. They are my very favorite desserts and the only problem you will have is deciding which one to make. Will it be my all-time favorite chocolate cake or had you rather recreate my famous Joe’s Stone Crab copycat Key Lime Pie? Decisions. Decisions.

This will be my third Mother’s Day without my mom. Yes, it’s a bittersweet day, but I’ll always have precious memories that I cherish and keep close to my heart and those, my friend, will never fade.

Whatever your plans are for Mother’s Day, I would love for you to try one of my favorite desserts. And, please, don’t forget to call your mom!

Happy early Mother’s Day to all you moms!

That Italian Cream Cake is the first one here that I want to try. So many of the things here sound awesome.

Can I just have a piece of everything and call it good. Honestly all of these look delicious. Would be hard to choose.

I would love any of these desserts! I have a giant sweet tooth. I might have to buy myself a cake or something. My husband has to work on Mother’s Day and I’m not sure if my kids could make any of these on their own. I’d love that pecan pie cobbler.

Ashley May 9, 2018 - 9:47 am

I’ll take one of each! Someone tell my family lol

All of these sound really great. I would love any one of these for Mother’s Day, or just because. I don’t really like to do much of anything on Mother’s Day, just relax.

You are totally speaking my language! I have such a sweet tooth that for Mother’s Day all I really want something sweet.

Each dessert was better than the next and I am getting hungry reading this. Italian cream cake and pecan pie cobbler are my first choices but I like them all.

Who could pick just one of those! Hubby would love the eclair pie while I’d like the chocolate mousse.

Michelle Garrett May 9, 2018 - 6:27 pm

All the yums! That Pecan Pie Cobbler looks scrumptious. One of the greatest things about Mother’s Day is having first dibs on the dessert. Thanks for sharing!

Tasheena May 9, 2018 - 10:01 pm

I’ve never had pecan cobbler before. Everything looks delicious! I want to try everything, especially the carrot cake recipe.

Franc Ramon May 9, 2018 - 10:08 pm

I would love everything on here. They all look sweet, tasty and an indulgence. If I had to choose one, it would be the Peanut Butter Pie with Oreo crust.

Dina May 9, 2018 - 10:17 pm

These would be all on my list to have for Mother’s Day. You’ve provided a really great list of desserts for Mother’s Day to help others make up something delicious for their mom on Sunday.

Terri Steffes May 9, 2018 - 11:03 pm

I’m going to pick one of these to my mom’s on Sunday. The peach one is calling my name.

Jeanine May 10, 2018 - 6:35 pm

So many of these sound incredible. this is the very first year in 13 years my husband will be home for mother’s day so I am really looking forward to seeing what he comes up with!

These all look so decadent and delicious. The perfect ending to any good Mother’s Day meal 🙂

rika May 11, 2018 - 12:15 am

Those keylime pies look amazing! But all of them look so good. I am 100% sure that my husband will end up buying dessert from the store 🙂

These are some really irresistible desserts that is sure to melt any mother’s heart. All of them are sweet, but not as sweet as a mother’s love, I am sure.

Mother’s day has always been lovely in our home, with my mom gone, I honor her by making her favorite recipes! We can never forget about dessert! This is a great list!
