Delia's Book of Cakes was first published in 1977, and such is the staying power of this 35-year-old phenomenon, it has never been out of print.

Now, to celebrate its success, it has undergone a complete contemporary makeover. It still retains the much-loved favourites that have stood the test of time, but now alongside them there are new recipes, new ideas, new ingredients, and new and simpler methods. Over 90% of the recipes in the book have been tested gluten-free.

From timeless classics like coffee and walnut sponge and old-fashioned cherry cake, to seasonal classice like Christmas and simnel cake, to exciting new recipes such as iced hidden strawberry cup cakes and chunky marmalade muffins, Delia brings her touch of baking magic to your kitchen.

All this is as you would expect from Delia: easy accessible recipes, carefully tested, and utterly to be trusted.

Quite simply - as then, so now - the only book of cakes you'll ever need is Delia's Cakes.

“Delia's Cakes”

I have no concerns about the recipes, but the print is difficult to read if you have less than perfect eyesight. It is very pale on a light background and I needed to tilt the book in several directions to read it.... More

This a beautifully laid out book, and the recipes are excellent. Easy to follow and always delicious cakes at the end. I highly recommend the Dark Jamaican Gingerbread.
