Long Description to add
Who can resist such a stunning dessert? To make life easier you can use bought pastry but it's well worth making Delia's quick flaky pastry as it has a wonderful depth of flavour. Use any summer berries you like.
Although this sublime chocolate dessert includes home-made (and very easy!) vanilla ice cream, if time is short you could always cheat and use a good bought one, then just add the hot chocolate sauce and toppings. Easy!
These are so good we reckon you won't want to restrict them to Easter eating: moreishly spicy, packed with dried fruit and with a freshness, softness and flavour that puts bought hot cross buns in the shade every time.
A marriage made in heaven, gooseberries and elderflowers complement each other perfectly - an example of nature at its best, as both ingredients are in season at the same time! These jellies are a refreshing summer pud.
A wonderfully easy way to serve rhubarb, this lovely compote totally avoids that common problem with rhubarb - mush! - as it cooks slowly in the oven without water to keep its texture and shape but add loads of flavour.
In this superb cheesecake, rhubarb is combined with ginger - a luscious partnership - to make a dessert that's perfect for spring, when rhubarb is in season.
Predominantly fruit, this is a healthy summery dessert to serve to dieters who often feel they miss out on the pudding front. You can use any fruit combination you like - the lemon grass adds a subtle and intriguing element.
A real classic, this dessert is wintry and wonderful: dip your spoon into the soft sponge to release a pool of lemony sauce at the bottom. What could be better?
Rum-soaked fruit and bananas are combined in filo pastry for this wonderful strudel, which looks hugely impressive when served. Add some vanilla ice cream for a dessert to die for!
These were all the rage in the 1960s - the sort of thing a waiter would flambe in front of guests in a kind of floor show. It's a shame they've fallen out of favour and deserve to be back in fashion - a lovely citrus and pancake dessert.
