Fruit Recipes

Especially in the summer months, it's a crime not to make the most of all those wonderful berries, just bursting with flavour. Delia gives them a starring role in a range of sublime desserts, cakes and special-occasion recipes.

Fresh Date and Apple ChutneyServes 6 as a starter

Fresh Date and Apple Chutney

This chutney goes particularly well with Camembert Croquettes. However, it would also partner the Christmas cold cuts and buffet food extremely well, especially ham, pork pies and gammon.

 
 
Pears Baked in Marsala WineServes 8

Pears Baked in Marsala Wine

The rich, dark flavour of Marsala combined with fragrant pear juices is a quite stunning combination. But this recipe can also be made with red wine or strong dry cider – each version has its own particular charm.

 
 
Compote of Figs in PortServes 4

Compote of Figs in Port

Dessert figs that have become too dry to eat as they are can be excellent made into a compote. This is superb served with ice cream, but failing that, try it with some Greek yoghurt.

 
 
Caramelised ApplesServes 4

Caramelised Apples

This is really toffee apples served as a dessert and, while they are pretty child-friendly, we know they'll go down a storm with adults too!

 
 
Mincemeat and Apple JalousieServes 8, or cut into 16 squares to replace mince pies

Mincemeat and Apple Jalousie

Mincemeat, apple, ready-rolled pastry and you're away: what could be easier than this tart, which is perfect at Christmastime, served with custard, cream or brandy butter.

 
 
Lemon Curd Souffle OmeletteServes 2

Lemon Curd Souffle Omelette

This recipe is very special. What you get are clouds of very lemony, very light melt in the mouth loveliness.

 
 
Proper Custard

Proper Custard

It is so simple to make proper custard, not only does it taste better than anything ready made it freezes well too.

 
 
Raspberry and Blueberry CrumbleServes 6 - 8

Raspberry and Blueberry Crumble

A traditional English pudding, and a perfect partner is Delia's recipe for Proper Custard, see related recipe below

 
 
Strawberry and Vanilla PavlovaServes 6

In the winter it works really well with passion fruit

 
 
Chunky Apple Cake

Apples are superb in cakes, so in the autumn when there are lots of windfalls around, why not make a few of these and freeze them.
