Once you've mastered the art of melting chocolate - see How to Cook section on the site - you are opening yourself up to a world of wonderful chocolate recipes, from chocolate bread-and-butter-pudding to profiteroles and Sachertorte. Who can resist?
This gorgeous pudding features the easiest and best chocolate sauce Delia has ever tired: well worth making for a weekend treat!
This is the easiest chocolate recipe ever invented - and yet it tastes wonderful. I first made a more basic version for children's TV. Since then it's got much more sophisticated but the joy of its simplicity and the fact that no cooking is required
Everyone loves profiteroles, so give these a whirl next time you're entertaining.
We’ve sometimes made this in one large M&S tart case – the choice is yours. Either way, these are very pretty, with a wonderfully glossy surface, but you could give them a dusting of cocoa.
From the book, Delia's Cakes and made with dark chocolate and almonds. A moist cake with tiny flecks of chocolate.
This is a perennial favourite, named after the famous Viennese hotel. It’s dark, very chocolatey and sophisticated, and for a special occasion or a birthday, it’s nice to decorate it with sugared rose petals
If there is an ultimate chocolate cake this one could be high on the list of contenders. No flour, just chocolate, ground almonds and whipped egg whites which make it so light and airy, and extremely moist.
This is obviously perfect for children to make because there’s no cooking involved. But the grown-up version could include other combinations of fruits and nuts (prunes, crystallised ginger, dried sour cherries, etc).
Chocolate, Beer and Cake. Say no more...
I made these on TV with Dawn French for Comic Relief. After that, school children were making them all over the country to raise money – and they were very popular. We also like them without the chocolate topping.
