I always make Delia's fabulous Christmas pudding and this year plan to make in usual way by steaming but I wondered if it's possible to reheat it on Christmas Day in my slow cooker and save valuable hob space. Can you advise on timing and setting please.
Many thanks, Mel

Hi Lindsay, if wanted to make delia's classic Christmas cake and mincemeat on the same day would they both be ok to cook at the same temperature? I notice the cake cooks at 140 and the mincemeat at 110. This is the first year I've made mincemeat so I'm a little unsure.
I made Delia's classic Christmas cake last week. How much brandy should I use each time I feed the cake (top and bottom on alternate weeks). I don't want to make it wet but want to give it enough! Many thanks.
Hi I used the recipe for PORK CHOPS BAKED WITH WILD MUSHROOMS AND CREME FRAICHE I followed the recipe but did use half fat Creme fraiche. It all separated out and looked awful was this because I used half fat Creme fraiche and is their any way to rescue this? Thanks
Re. Creole cake recipe
Can I use something else to replace the nuts and the dates... maybe a quality mixed fruit ?... what do you advice .
Hi, I don't know if this is something you will be able to help with, but here goes.
I have recently had to buy a new electric fan oven, and everything seems to be coming out overcooked, especially my baking. My scones that I've made hundreds of times over the years, are coming out really dry, and I made Delia's Victoria Sponge cake the other day, that is also one of my go to recipes, and that came out so dry that even masses of jam and whipped cream didn't help...
