I wonder if you can help me.
I would like to know if it is possible to substitute sugar for honey in Delia's Christmas cake and Christmas mincemeat recipes as I am on a refined food diet. And can I substitute black treacle for anything else.....also can I use butter instead of suet for the mincemeat recipe?
I always use Delia's recipe and don't want to change. My mother used Delia's Complete Cookery Course and then sent me one in 1994. It's very ragged now but I wouldn't change it for anything as it holds wonderful memories of my mother for me!
Q&A's? We are here to help. We being Delia and Lindsey. We work closely together and can answer any queries you have relating to Delia's recipes and our online Cookery School. Why not ask a question right now? What we can't do though, is answer questions about other recipes. (For general website queries or technical questions please click here)
I made the cake yesterday, are you saying it won't last until Cristmas Day?
Hi Lindsey sorry it was a misunderstanding I meant the sticky gingerbread puddings that serve 8 that are cooked in the small 6 fluid oz pots, from the delias winter collection. Thanks sorry to keep bugging you
For the first time in 20 years I've baked a different cake from Delia's Christmas collection - the Light Glacé Fruit Cake.
However, I'm not sure if I should feed it? And if I should/could what to use. Also would this be better with the nut topping rather than marzipan and icing?
Hi I was just wondering if the cooking temperatures on the roast turkey recipe is for a fan oven or should they be reduced for a fan oven? Thanks
I'm just in the middle of making the Christmas Chutney and I realise I only have ground all spice, not all spice berries - none of my local shops stock all spice berries. Please could you tell me what to do? The recipe calls for 75g of the berries to be put in muslin and then in the chutney and later removed.
