Plain Scones

Plain Scones

Plain, meaning without added fruit, but light, airy and just the right amount of crusty surface makes these scones the perfect backdrop to preserves and clotted cream.

 
 
Rich Fruit SconesMakes about 8

Rich Fruit Scones

These don’t need clotted cream and preserves – just serve them fresh and warm from the oven with a serious amount of really good butter.

 
 
Squidgy Chocolate Cake

Squidgy Chocolate Cake

In the late ’70s this cake went down a storm, and still people tell me they always have it on their birthday! Because it is not made with flour it’s incredibly light and soufflé-like.

 
 
Preserved Ginger CakeMakes 15 squares

Preserved Ginger Cake

In the original book, and ever since, this has been one of my own top favourites, and has been hugely popular with everyone. But this time round we have used the all-in-one method, so it’s much easier.

 
 
Old-fashioned Cherry Cake

Old-fashioned Cherry Cake

OK. It is an old-fashioned, very English kind of cake, and yes the cherries sometimes sink but believe me there are many people who are still very attached to it. If you’re one of these, we have found the old-fashioned creaming-block-butter method works

 
 
Spiced Apple and Cider CakeServes 8

Spiced Apple and Cider Cake

This is quite definitely a dessert cake. The combination of spices, the hint of orange and the balance of tart apples and cake are perfect. It needs a large dollop of crème fraiche or whipped cream to go with it.

 
 
Oat and Raisin CookiesMakes about 24

Oat and Raisin Cookies

No changes here on these almost classic biscuits, but now you could replace the raisins with dried sour cherries or dried cranberries to ring the changes.

 
 
Pear and Almond Cake with Streusel Topping

Pear and Almond Cake with Streusel Topping

This would be my choice for autumn when there are lots of lovely ripe pears around. We like to eat it served in slices with pools of Jersey pouring cream.

 
 
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
