Fancy desserts like cherries jubilee and pots de crème are perfect for special dinners, to be enjoyed on the spot. But dense cakes, spiked with fruit and spices can be enjoyed for days and are lovely with a warm beverage. If you have one or two on hand, you're always ready for unexpected company, which might be a real possibility once your neighbours get a whiff of the goodness baking in your kitchen.
We've picked out a few of Stefano's best cakes, fritters and tarts that come together easily and taste delicious, of course. These treats are perfect for a tea party, a lazy Sunday afternoon or even for a bite with your morning coffee. Make them on a Sunday or a rainy day--a perfect project with the kids!--for that afternoon guest or to enjoy yourself all week.
