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.
With a royally good taste, queen of puddings is one of those old-fashioned desserts that should find favour in a recession: cheap and easy but no less delicious for it.
This unusual Italian cake freezes really well and makes a nice change from the more obvious teatime offerings: polenta gives the cake a grainy texture while the ricotta and amaretto to add moisture and an alcoholic kick!
Why not freeze these gorgeous little puds for a very special dessert? Your guests will love the wonderful flavours of this real treat.
The Canadian bit comes from the maple syrup - that sticky, sweet, caramelly ingredient that lifts pancakes into the realm of the heavenly. Using buttermilk makes pancakes particularly light and moreish.
You really don't want these in the house if you're watching your weight as it's impossible to eat just one! Made with chocolate and almonds, they are quite irresistible and can be made with chocolate chips for a child-friendly version.
Chocolate and ginger is a marriage made in heaven, so combine them in these irresistible little biscuits... impossible to eat just one!
OK, this isn't the healthiest dessert on record, but we all deserve a no-holds-barred bit of indulgence now and then. Anyone who loves chocolate will thrill to this wonderful baked cheesecake. To avoid it cracking, allow to cool in the oven.
Although risotto is usually savoury, think rice pudding and you'll get the point of this lovely, unusual chocolate dessert.
Raspberries may not be the obvious choice for a crumble, but their sharpness perfectly offsets the sweetness and texture of the topping. Give it a go!
Make these the day before you want to eat them: creamy, luxurious and so special, these lovely low-fat cheesecakes are the perfect treat for dieters!
