9. AN EASTER RECIPE THAT NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE: SIMNEL AMISH FRIENDSHIP BREAD CAKE
We don’t have a simnel cake (pictured above from BBC Food) in the Recipe Box (yet!), but here’s a quick hack: Take our fruit cake recipe from Kitchen Friend Tammy Basile and add two layers of marzipan, one in the center of the cake and another on top, held in place with a thin spread of some warm apricot jam. Top with 11 marzipan balls or edible flowers to represent the 11 Apostles. You can purchase marzipan here.
10. TOP IT OFF: BERRY COMPOTE
Looking for that special something to drizzle over your Easter creation? Look no further. Thanks to Kitchen Friend Paula Altenbach for sharing this recipe for Berry Compote with us.
