Gratin of Asparagus with Cheese and Poached EggsServes 2

Gratin of Asparagus with Cheese and Poached Eggs

This one's a complete doddle and takes no time at all: a new take on this season's asparagus, accompanied by a creamy cheese sauce and freshly poached eggs. Makes you want to become a vegetarian on sight!

 
 
Spike's Apple SorbetServes 6

Spike's Apple Sorbet

Sorbets are a brilliant way of cleansing the palate between courses or as a refreshing dessert. This unusual apple version from Delia's friend, chef Galton Blackiston, can't be bettered.

 
 
Bloody Mary TomatoesServes 6

Bloody Mary Tomatoes

Marinate tomatoes in vodka, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco sauce for a couple of days and you'll have a canape that's an explosion of flavours!

 
 
Cassata SicilianaServes 6-8

Cassata Siciliana

It may look as if this Italian classic took hours to make, but in fact you just assemble a few ingredients in a loaf tin and there you have it - a lovely dessert that will earn you plenty of compliments.

 
 
English Apple and Almond Trifle with Calvados

Mmmm…apple fans will swoon over this fabulous trifle, with its Calvados-soaked trifle sponges, apple puree and custard layer, with mascarpone and almonds on top.

 
 
Roast Chicken with Grape and Herb StuffingServes 4

Roast Chicken with Grape and Herb Stuffing

This is a lovely way to serve a roast chicken in the spring and summer months when fresh herbs are in abundance. The grapes add fruitiness and moisture to the stuffing.

 
 
Spiced Apple Muffin Cake with Pecan Streusel ToppingServes 10-12

Spiced Apple Muffin Cake with Pecan Streusel Topping

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.

 
 
Feta, Olive and Sun-dried Tomato SconesMakes 12

Feta, Olive and Sun-dried Tomato Scones

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.

 
 
Bara BrithMakes 1 loaf

Bara Brith

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.

 
 
Buttermilk Scones with West Country Clotted Cream and Raspberry ButterMakes about 10 scones

Buttermilk Scones with West Country Clotted Cream and Raspberry Butter

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!
