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?
So easy and loved by everyone who eats it: isn't it time to revisit this classic French dessert?
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.
It’s the hidden ingredient that’s the surprise. Mashed potato, often used in potato scones but even better in these small cakes – giving them a soft moist texture.
Chocolate Orange (on the left) another easy-to-make non-alcoholic drink for drivers.
This is quite simply my own favourite chocolate dessert of all time. It’s dark, very moist, and the prunes soaked in Armagnac make it a very grown-up chocolate experience. I used to call it Sunken Chocolate Cake but sometimes it doesn’t sink!
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.
