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.
•75g caster sugar
•275g plain flour
•Icing pens/sprinkles to decorate
•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
•Tablespoon golden syrup or honey
•4 large shredded wheat
•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!
