If you really want to splash out you can make this with champagne, but sparkling white wine works very well, too. This is a lovely light dessert that slips down easily after a rich main course. It looks beautiful served in stemmed champagne flutes
Make this the day before you want to serve it and you'll be rewarded with one of the lightest, creamiest desserts ever. Blueberries make a wonderful compote but you could also use other summer berries instead.
This recipe was requested via e-mail by Jamie Sherwin. I love having your Cooks' Questions requests, as I haven't made one of these cakes for years and I've forgotten how good it is. Don't forget to start the night before you want it though.

Perfect with lamb, this easy confit is a superb way to use up any gluts of redcurrants that may assail you during the summer!
This lovely cinnamon ice cream is the perfect accompaniment to Christmas desserts.
You have to make the terrine in advance, which means this is an ideal dessert when entertaining and will elicit many compliments from your grateful guests.
