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.
Those who aren't too keen on a traditional rich, dark Christmas pud may find this lighter, spicier version more to their liking.
These light, refreshing jellies would make a welcome break from rich Christmas food over the festive period and are pretty enough to serve at a special-occasion dinner. Make them the day before for hassle-free entertaining.
Those with a gluten intolerance often have to just sit and watch while others tuck into gorgeous puddings. Not here: this chocolate fudge pudding by Darina Allen allows everyone to join in and is well worth making.
This lovely steamed pudding is made without sugar - so is ideal for diabetics. The sweet element is provided by the plump raisins, while the sauce adds the finishing touch.
Just three ingredients here, but they meld together beautifully to create a simple, yet simply stunning, dessert that has more than a hint of Americana!
Apple charlotte is an old favourite, but when pears are in season and you've had your fill of poached pears and pears with chocolate sauce, use them to make a charlotte.
Completely irresistible, this wonderful pudding features a layer of ripe, juicy peaches topped with a cloud of fluffy almond sponge. Pudding heaven!
As the title says, this cake is just made in one bowl to the time-honoured all-in-one creaming method. Add fresh raspberries and mascarpone cream for a really summery treat!
A flavour of Christmas here - a chocolate log with a wonderful filling of chocolate mousse and prunes in Armagnac. It would also make the most impressive dessert - minus the holly! - at any time of the year.
These decadent little chocolate fondants, given to Delia by Galton Blackiston at Morston Hall, will elicit plenty of approval from your guests.
