Long Description to add
Jellies are always a good bet in the summer months, when all you really want is something light and refreshing. The joy of these is that they can also be made in advance, so are ideal when entertaining.
Instead of making a classic crème pâtissière why not cheat and use a mixture of bought fresh custard and crème fraîche? Then make your shortbreads, add some fruit and puree and you have one of the most impressive-looking desserts imaginable!
Blackcurrants, raspberries or redcurrants can be used instead of gooseberries, but either way we just know you'll love this grown-up, prepare-ahead version of rice pudding!
Want to know how to get the thinnest, crunchiest crust on your brûlée? Delia's shares a chef's secret tip and creates a fruity summery dessert that will soon become a firm favourite.
Peaches and Amaretti have a great affinity, put to good use here in this gorgeous dessert recipe, adapted by Delia from one of her all-time favourite cookbooks.
Perfect for late-summer entertaining, this wonderful dessert has to be made in advance, leaving you stress-free on the day! The combination of fresh apricots, Marsala and mascarpone cream is utterly sublime.
Pavlova is perennially popular and, if you use Delia's foolproof recipe, it will work every time! The juxtaposition of sweet, crisp meringue and soft, sharp summer fruits is one of the best you can find.
It has to be said that while we were filming ice creams for The Summer Collection television series, the team tasted them all (with not a spoonful left over!) and voted this one their number one favourite.
This can be a no-fat and no-sugar dessert for waist watchers which does taste rather good. But if you like you can use whole milk Greek yoghurt, which will be creamier and have some fat content.
This ice cream is unbelievably good. Perhaps one of the best treats of early summer would be to serve A Very Easy One Crust Gooseberry Pie accompanied by home-made ice cream: what a combination!
