Easter would not be the same without us getting together as a family to make this delightful Easter Simnel cake. Simnel cake is essentially a fruit cake however the wow factor is the marzipan topping and the 11 marzipan balls on top signifying the apostles, minus Judas. We cheat a little and use ready to roll marzipan.
You can also use a cook's blowtorch to brown the marzipan.
I have been baking for forty years and i made this cake and was very disappointed all fruit sank. - 07 Apr 2015
