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.
Crumble has to be one of the best desserts going, and it's so quick and easy to make, especially if you use a food processor to make the topping. This is a true classic…
Click on the recipe to reveal Delia's favourite crumble topping - and a filling that would be particularly good at Christmastime, when mincemeat is definitely flavour of the month.
Although this sublime chocolate dessert includes home-made (and very easy!) vanilla ice cream, if time is short you could always cheat and use a good bought one, then just add the hot chocolate sauce and toppings. Easy!
These are so good we reckon you won't want to restrict them to Easter eating: moreishly spicy, packed with dried fruit and with a freshness, softness and flavour that puts bought hot cross buns in the shade every time.
A real classic, this dessert is wintry and wonderful: dip your spoon into the soft sponge to release a pool of lemony sauce at the bottom. What could be better?
Wholemeal flour adds lightness to this stunning, classic cake - and of course you can kid yourself that it's a healthy option too! What could be better with a cup of tea?
Rum-soaked fruit and bananas are combined in filo pastry for this wonderful strudel, which looks hugely impressive when served. Add some vanilla ice cream for a dessert to die for!
These were all the rage in the 1960s - the sort of thing a waiter would flambe in front of guests in a kind of floor show. It's a shame they've fallen out of favour and deserve to be back in fashion - a lovely citrus and pancake dessert.
Definitely not for diet days, but this glorious chocolate cheesecake is a must for chocoholics. It's also easier to make than it looks, so why not wow your guests?
For any special occasion, give this traditional classic pud a luxurious twist with the addition of whisky-soaked raisins.
