Hey and welcome to 5 Weeknight Dishes. This week we’re doing one thing new: desserts. Final Friday I requested if this was one thing that may curiosity you, and I’ve by no means gotten so many emails. (If you happen to’re feeling cheated and need your dinner recipes, check out these solutions for some excellent weeknight choices from my boss, Sam Sifton.)

Deciding on this week’s recipes was each very simple and really exhausting — simple as a result of I do know exactly what I wish to bake after I want one thing candy on demand (these recipes could be made inside two hours or much less), exhausting due to all the alternatives to agonize over, such is my love for the baking recipes on NYT Cooking. Like Dorie Greenspan’s Swedish almond cake. Samantha Seneviratne’s double chocolate cookies. Susan Spungen’s brown sugar anise cookies. I may go on, and can beneath.

Do you’re keen on this? Do you simply need that weeknight hen? I’m dearemily@nytimes.com. The traces are open.

Listed below are 5 desserts for the week:

3. New Traditional Brownies

I actually debated whether or not to provide you a cookie, cake or brownie to satisfy your chocolate wants. However I concluded that nothing beats a brownie, ideally served with a small, very chilly glass of milk. I’m unconflicted about whether or not that brownie must be fudgy or cakey: Clearly it must be fudgy. This recipe, from the cookbook writer Alice Medrich, is my favourite. Different glorious brownies to think about: maximalist pecan pie brownies; vegan brownies with tahini and halvah; flourless beet brownies.

4. Nutella Banana Bread

Banana bread is one in all my lifelong favorites, and I prefer it finest studded closely with chocolate chips. Yossy Arefi goes a step past that and provides swirls of Nutella. Image your self consuming this on the sofa whilst you watch “Name My Agent!” (OK, that’s me.) For a extra traditional and really scrumptious chocolate chip banana bread, do that recipe; and this banana bread is a spin on a extra conventional spiced bread.
