Easter Bakes & Cakes: CookBlogShare Week 12 – Welcome to Week 12 of Cook Blog Share. This week I am highlighting Easter Bakes & Cakes. So, PLEASE DO join in!
Cook Blog Share Week 12
Hello and welcome to Cook Blog Share Week 12, where I’ve shared an Easter theme, with Easter Bakes & Cakes. Easter week is just 2 weeks away, and I thought it would be nice to share some wonderful spring recipes, cakes and bakes included, as well as bread and chocolates.
Last week Sisley hosted Cook Blog Share, and her Family Favourite Meat Dishes was very popular, with some wonderful recipes for tasty family suppers and tea. I love simple family meals, especially for midweek when time may be at a premium, AND especially as most children have now gone back to school.
Easter Bakes & Cakes
But, as I mentioned above, today’s theme for Cook Blog Share is Easter Bakes & Cakes, and before I share some of my favourite recipes, I want to highlight some recipes from last week’s linky. There were all sorts of wonderful entries, but it was the following four recipes that I bookmarked, as they looked so seasonal.
Delectable lightly spiced and fruited homemade vegan hot cross buns for Easter. With wholemeal spelt flour and only a little sugar, this recipe is healthier than many but doesn’t compromise on festive munchiness. As yeast buns go, these are some of the easiest to make.
These moist and fudgy Chocolate Cadburys Mini Egg Brownies are the perfect Easter treat. Loaded with everyone’s favorite mini Easter eggs, whip up a batch of these for friends and you’ll be more popular than the Easter Bunny.
This recipe is very popular at Christmas, but I tend to make it any time I want something slightly different than just traditional chocolate truffles. The addition of cake crumbs in this rum truffle recipe is just genius, and it makes these ever so slightly addictive.
A traditional Gluten Free Simnel Cake recipe decorated with marzipan for Mothering Sunday and Easter. Optional dairy free. This GF Simnel Cake looks absolutely amazing, and I would love to see it on my Easter Table!
