Q: I have recently had the world's most amazing dessert, right here in Atlanta. The Di's Delight at 10 Degrees South is hands-down the most wonderful confection I have ever tried. It is this warm, moist, buttery piece of heaven. Is there any way you could convince the owner to give out the recipe?

A: "After much persuasion, " owner Justin Anthony said, he was able to get the recipe for this unusual dessert from his mother, Di, who makes it for the restaurant every day. Part cake, part baked pudding, part sugar fix, Di's Delight is their most popular dessert, Anthony said. The restaurant specializes in South African cuisine.
