Instead of making individual muffins, this recipe makes one large cake (or you could do small ones if you prefer). Although this one is made with apple, you could equally use plums or apricots in the summer.

Bara Brith

This classic yeasty, fruity tea bread is traditional in Wales. During her Welsh childhood, Delia remembers it being spread with lots of butter at teatime. Easy and cheap to make, it keeps well and is a real treat.

Polenta and Ricotta Cake with Dates and Pecans

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!

Canadian Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple SyrupMakes about 6

Canadian Buttermilk Pancakes with Maple Syrup

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.

 
 
Chocolate Almond CrunchiesMakes 18

Chocolate Almond Crunchies

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.
