Made in moments, this trifle is a real treat for chocolate lovers. And even complete beginners can make this, as all it involves is a quick trawl round the supermarket and an assembly job.
This recipe looks so impressive that your guests will think you've spent all day in the kitchen. Little do they know that this is a quick and easy recipe that you can make in advance, then just sit back and wait for the compliments!

Extremely rich and packed with wonderful almondy amaretti flavours, this grown-up cake can just as well be served as a dinner-party dessert, with or without cream.

Wholemeal flour adds lightness to this stunning, classic cake - and of course you can kid yourself that it's a healthy option too! What could be better with a cup of tea?
Definitely not for diet days, but this glorious chocolate cheesecake is a must for chocoholics. It's also easier to make than it looks, so why not wow your guests?

This is the recipe for all those who daren't attempt a souffle: it's supposed to sink! You can freeze both the souffle and sauce and, if you prefer, use port or amaretto instead of French-inspired Armagnac for the prunes.
