Quick to make and so delicious to eat. These simnel Easter brownies are rich, fudgy and decadent. And if you like marzipan, there’s a bonus chunk of it in every mouthful.
This luscious simnel cake is a light fruit cake laden with homemade marzipan. As tradition dictates, it has a surprise squidgy layer of marzipan in the middle and a layer on top. It’s then decorated with eleven large balls of the stuff. Less traditionally, the cake contains pieces of chocolate. Scrumptious.
Have you thought about making your own Easter eggs? It can be easier than you might think. These homemade truffle Easter eggs have a nice crisp chocolate shell and a melt in the mouth filling.

A rich moist cake, which is dark in colour but light in texture. Traditionally a chocolate Guinness cake should be iced with a white chocolate topping, but this one has a dark chocolate ganache with a swoosh of Guinness in it. This works well as an Easter cake, though it’s good at any other time too.
