Known to have been baked since the medieval ages, this light fruitcake is topped with either marzipan or almond paste. The toasted ‘eggs’ around the edge act as symbol of Jesus’s disciples, without Judas, and therefore often enjoyed on Easter Sunday.
A delicate and moreish cake, the simnel can be enjoyed by all. Our recipe here means you can get everyone involved, and get as creative as you like. Delicate patterns can be embossed onto the marzipan on top, before being toasted. We love putting swirls or circles to add a delicate touch, and replacing the marzipan balls with cut out flowers. Why not start an Easter tradition now?
Alternatively, you can gift one directly from us and get it delivered anywhere, alongside other Easter treats which you can find on our website from tomorrow!
