We've modernised hot cross buns in our house - these involve chocolate! You can use milk or dark chocolate but Green & Black's do a dark chocolate with ginger and it works really well with the spice in the hot cross buns. We usually don't get a chance to make them until Easter Saturday and they disappear in no time.
This Easter cake can be made with your favourite cake recipe, or even with a mix if you're short on time. The nice thing is that you don't need a special bunny-shaped tin for this cake recipe.
These are mini fairy cakes so they are a nice size for kids. They are easy and so quick to make, too. Children can decorate them any way they like. Feel free to use whatever type of chocolate you prefer. We have fun making these every year!
I have tried making simnel cake a few times and it has come out heavy in the past. This recipe uses more eggs and rather than having the marzipan as a layer through the middle, the cake has chunks of marzipan dotted through the cake itself. Having made it for Mothering Sunday, it will not last through to Easter as it has proved very popular.
Pecans add a lovely crunch to this delcious carrot cake but feel free to leave them out if you don't like nuts. The cream cheese icing is what takes this classic carrot cake to the next level!
