Gumbo is Louisiana's most famous food and these dessert recipes from Cajun country are well known favorites too.
Ask any gumbo devotee what the best sweet ending to a bowl of their favorite gumbo is and you will get answers like bread pudding or pecan praline.
Bread pudding is a dessert that is popular in many
cultures and no variety is better than the Cajun and Creole versions
found in South Louisiana. It is the definitive sweet ending to a rich
bowl of gumbo. Your guests will savor the yummy texture and flavor with
smiles of surprise and delight. Served with a warm buttery sugar topping this dish goes off the charts for goodness.
Another classic Cajun sweet is the pecan praline. Pralines are a family of confections made from nuts and sugar and are similar to brittle but softer. They are a delicious candy like sweet that's good anytime and especially after gumbo.
A classic dessert with a much celebrated status in New Orleans is the beignet.
