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.

Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake with a Confit of Lemons

Although it may not be the obvious choice at the end of a rich meal, the light and fluffy texture of this cheesecake, and its hit of lemon makes it ideal. The confit needs to be made a day in advance.

 
 
A Terrine of Summer FruitsServes 6-8

A Terrine of Summer Fruits

Juicy, jewel-like summer berries encased in a raspberry jelly – what could be more refreshing on a summer’s day when entertaining? Make it in advance and serve it with cream or, for a truly low-fat option, as it is.

 
 
A Return to the Black Forest Serves 10-12

A Return to the Black Forest

A 1960s' revival here which looks impressive but is actually very easy to make - Delia has a foolproof way of rolling the flour-free roulade and the chocolate curls are child's play.

 
 
Tropical Fruit JelliesServes 8

Tropical Fruit Jellies

So easy to make and with almost no fat at all these jellies are a real winner, especially after Christmas when you need a respite from rich food!

 
 
Quick Tropical TriflesServes 8

Quick Tropical Trifles

These heavenly little trifles are actually an assembly job with plenty of tropical flavours: rum-soaked sponge, bananas, mangoes and pineapple, topped with a vanilla-infused layer of mascarpone and custard. Who could resist?

Redcurrant JellyMakes two 0.5 litre jars

Redcurrant Jelly

Delia's redcurrant jelly is adapted from a 19th-century recipe and is a million miles from the over-processed sweet version all too often found in the shops today. Try it with lamb and cold cuts.

 
 
Dried Fruit Salad with Yoghurt and NutsServes 4-6

Dried Fruit Salad with Yoghurt and Nuts

This recipe is full of natural, good things – there is no sugar in it as I have come to the conclusion it tastes better without it.
