Easter Baking

As we are enjoying the lovely beaches of Cornwall, the lovely Kate from Family Fever has kindly written up some Easter recipes for us to enjoy....



With Easter almost upon us and a lot of children now being on school holidays, baking is a great way to keep the kids occupied and create some delicious treats too.

 Here are 2 of my favourite Easter baking recipes – quick, easy and really tasty.


Easter biscuits
Ingredients:
175g butter
75g caster sugar
275g plain flour
Icing pens/sprinkles to decorate

Method:

Cut the butter into small pieces, then add the flour and sugar
Rub the butter between your fingers to make tiny crumbs
Squeeze everything together to make a dough
Knead lightly, then place between 2 sheets of baking powder and roll out thinly
Peel off the top piece of paper and cut out shapes – maybe Easter eggs?
Place on a baking tray, and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees.
Once cooled  decorate in any way you like!

Easter nest cakes

Ingredients:
300g chocolate
Tablespoon golden syrup or honey
4 large shredded wheat
Mini eggs

Method:
Break the chocolate into pieces and melt
Add the honey or syrup and stir
Crumble the shredded wheat into the mixture and stir well
Spoon into cake cases and decorate with mini eggs. You can eat them straight away or pop them in the fridge to set!

Thanks Kate!
