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.

Why not freeze these gorgeous little puds for a very special dessert? Your guests will love the wonderful flavours of this real treat.
Invented at Eton for 4 June celebrations, this easy summery dessert is one of the quickest and most delectable ways to enjoy home-grown strawberries, couple with cream and meringue. Yum!
Chocolate lovers will think they've died and gone to heaven if you serve them this sumptuous souffle. And souffle makers will be pleased to hear that, even if it sinks a little, this dessert will still be fabulous.
The Canadian bit comes from the maple syrup - that sticky, sweet, caramelly ingredient that lifts pancakes into the realm of the heavenly. Using buttermilk makes pancakes particularly light and moreish.
