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.
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.

Cake is a bit of a misnomer for this fruit-packed, spice-laden indulgence...you'll need a fork and it could even be served as a festive dessert with cream.
Start this wonderful gluten-free cake a couple of days ahead, then revel in its sheer lightness, due to the lack of flour used.
With its pretty white shreds this cake looks spectacular. It tastes pretty good too!
Who can resist one of these? Basic Rice Krispie cakes are given a visual lift with the addition of silver Smarties and silver cupcake cases. They'd be perfect for a tea party.
