Easter Baking Favourites

Easter has become synonymous with chocolate eggs but there’s so much more to Easter Baking. Favourites such as Simnel Cake and Hot Cross buns are classics and absolutely delicious if you make them yourself.

Simnel Cake

I have been making Simnel Cake for 20 odd years now, it’s a fruit cake with a layer of marzipan baked in the middle and then iced with marzipan and the 12 marzipan balls to represent the apostles. 11 if you don’t include Judas, which I always do.

Both of which require a bit of time and effort but if you are after something quicker Belgian chocolate brownies are quick and easy and always a crowd pleaser and rocky road a great recipe for children.
