can you tell me the following please: when an oven temperature is shown in a recipe for an electric oven, is this for a fan oven (which is usually 20 degrees lower than for a conventional oven)?
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.
Fresh lime and coconut cake
I followed the recipe for this cake exactly as written. However, my cakes came out even flatter than pancakes! I have gone over the recipe time and again, trying to find out where I went wrong but I did not deviate at all. I can only think that the ingredients weights are incorrect. I am a huge fan of Delia's recipes and have never had a disaster before.
I shall be very grateful if you can advise or explain.
I have baked Delia's lime and coconut cake (Summer collection)
twice and am very disappointed with the result. The cake did not rise at all. I have followed the recipe . The cake tastes good but it is very dense.
I'm wondering about dusting bread with flour.
I can understand the need to do this to stop the bread sticking. That said, Delia dusts the top of her white bread with flour even though it can't stick to anything.
I know a floured loaf looks authentic and home-baked but I sometimes don't like the flour taste.
What am I missing? Does the flour add flavour?
can you use margerine with water in the ingridents
Made the Apricot Oat Slice yesterday, followed all instructions and cooked for stated time......completely delicious but it fell apart when trying to slice it and is now a pile of crumbs! Any tips, as it would be nice to eat it as slices rather than with spoon! Thanks, Maria x
