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 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.
Sorbets are a brilliant way of cleansing the palate between courses or as a refreshing dessert. This unusual apple version from Delia's friend, chef Galton Blackiston, can't be bettered.
For 40 years, the nation has been making this pudding, which tastes even better if you prepare it a few weeks before Christmas then leave it in a cool place to mature. Serve with traditional brandy sauce.
