Even those who claim not to have a sweet tooth will find it impossible to resist Delia's fabulous sweet offerings, from cakes to ice cream, crumbles to creamy fruit puddings.
Tastes of Mauritius: an Indian Ocean variation on the brandy snap, filled with ice cream then topped with bananas in rum. A great dessert for any time of year that will elicit plenty of approval from all who eat it!
Wobbly and light - and a great dessert if you're watching the pennies - this creme caramel is a true nursery pudding classic, loved by people of all ages.
Christmas pud with a difference: rum and coconut ice cream, with rum-soaked fruit...what could make a more delectable change from the traditional steamed version at the end of a rich meal?
Make sure you start this recipe at least one day before, so the custards have time to chill.
Light and lovely, this chocolate chestnut log would make a great centrepiece at a Christmas party.
Light and lovely, these beautiful little souffles have the added attraction of being less likely to collapse than a standard version. Hand round chocolate sauce and cream for even more luxury (not to mention calories!)
Another souffle recipe that is perfect for entertaining as it doesn't collapse, allowing you time to get the dessert on to the table. The hot lemon curd is a revelation!
Children and adults alike will love these cakes - perfect for a mid-morning snack or in a lunchbox.
This recipe is a wonderful way to ring the changes from the ubiquitous plum crumble in late summer when plums are at their peak. Serve this with cream or ice cream for real indulgence.
You can, of course, make this in one large baking dish but the puddings look really pretty presented in individual dishes, particularly when entertaining.
