1. If you can make some boiled custard, you can serve that alone, with canned or fresh fruit. over pound cake (which can be bought or prepared ahead and will keep for quite a bit), of a combination of the above.
2. Again, with the leftover pound cake, especially if it starts to go stale...just butter and toast it...then serve as is or topped with the custard and fruit.
3. You can use dinner breads to make simple bread pudding...add some raisins, coconut, vanilla, etc. Oh, and DON'T use garlic bread.
4. Make some fruit salads that can also double as desserts.
5. Baked apples and pears are pretty easy to do...same with broiled peaches. Canned fruit works for these.
6. Use leftover rice to make a stovetop or baked rice pudding.
7. Make stewed fruit (apples, prunes, raisins, spices, liquor) that can be used as a filling/stuffing for some roasts but can also be resurrected later as a dessert, plain or served with whipped cream, custard, or over waffles.

Get a can of fruit cocktail. Drain the juice out and rinse the fruit. Then add any other fruit you may want. Then pour a box of sugar free Jello vanilla pudding. Just the powder. As you stir it in, there is enough moisture in the fruit to mix the pudding. Put it in the fridge for maybe a half hour, long enough for the pudding to set. It's good!! My ex wife got this recipe out of a cook book for diabetics, but it's good and tasty for anybody. And it's quick and simple, just like you said you're looking for! lol

How'd you like your chocolate lasagna?

My husband's other favorite dessert, besides brownies/ice cream/hot fudge, would be warm chocolate chip cookies, fresh from the oven.

Buttermilk Pie!!! I have a recipe "somewhere" where all you have to do is pour everything into a blender, and then pour into pie shells. If you've never had buttermilk pie, it is to die for!!! Similar to a Chess pie. If you're interested, you can google it, or I can try to find it for you. (I'm betting you can google it quicker!)

One of the most simple desserts I know how to make is berries in a balsamic reduction over ice cream. Coat a pan with balsamic vinager and reduce it for about five minutes. Put some blackberries (or other kind of berries) in it and stir for a minute or two. Pour this hot mixture over vanilla ice cream or sorbet and top with some dark chocolate. It will be done in under 10 minutes, start to finish, and it has been a crowd pleaser for guests at my apartment!
