For years with the exception of two years ago I follow Delia's recipe when making my Christmas cake but every year I get the same result! The cake tastes great but crumbles when I cut it ! I always soak the fruit, I do everything the recipe tells me to do! Two years ago I tried an alternative recipe but had the same result! It's time to think of this year's cake.....I would so like it not to be crumbly!!!! Please help!

Hi, I can't find The Big Freeze Guide on the website, but would like to know if I can freeze AUTUMN LAMB BRAISED IN BEAUJOLAIS.
I've been reading about loaf tins. I don't have a Delia loaf tin but in the article it states her loaf tin is the same as a 2lb traditional loaf tin but that a 2lb long loaf tin is not suitable for her loaf cakes. I have a 2lb loaf tin. How can I tell what type it is?
I add 100g melted butter to 250g digestive biscuits and always press down firmly into cake tin but it turns out very crumbly. Where am I going wrong. it used to work in the past.
Next week I have to collect my Great Grandson from the airport about an hour's drive. This boy is mad for jacket potato which I'd really like to serve him that evening. The problem is I can't start the cooking before I leave because an hour down and an hour back plus the best part of an hour before he'll emerge after landing, so say three hours.
