Use the right-sized tin and you can't go wrong with this blissfully easy cake - everyone you make it for will be amazed that it was so simple as it tastes divine.
Instead of making individual muffins, this recipe makes one large cake (or you could do small ones if you prefer). Although this one is made with apple, you could equally use plums or apricots in the summer.
These little scones are packed with Mediterranean flavours and are just the thing spread with butter at teatime. Alternatively, enjoy them with soup or other lunchtime foods.
Those who find a traditional fruit cake too heavy might enjoy Stollen which, although it still contains dried fruit, it altogether lighter. And, of course, the sweet-toothed will love the seam of marzipan running through the middle!
This classic yeasty, fruity tea bread is traditional in Wales. During her Welsh childhood, Delia remembers it being spread with lots of butter at teatime. Easy and cheap to make, it keeps well and is a real treat.
This brilliantly tasty supper dish for two takes only about 20 minutes to make, so is the perfect solution for a weekday supper when time is of the essence!
What could be a more classic teatime treat than scones fresh from the oven, served with lashings of clotted cream and intensely flavoured raspberry butter. Baking doesn't get any better than this!

Using ready-cooked chicken speeds up this already easy dish, making it a real winner for weekday supper. Coconut milk can be heavy in calories, so dieters may like to know that you can now buy half-fat coconut milk instead.
With a royally good taste, queen of puddings is one of those old-fashioned desserts that should find favour in a recession: cheap and easy but no less delicious for it.
