As if Easter isn’t sweet enough with its fluffy bunnies and little yellow chicks. But if you are looking for sweet inspiration, then this one is for you. Make sure this Easter is the sweetest of all with the ultimate list of baked goods and confections to celebrate the day.
As we usher in the cold season, there is no better food to celebrate with than a warm malva pudding loaded with lashings of whipped cream or custard. If you love nothing more than to cuddle up in front of the TV with a bowl of pudding, then this one is for you.
Meringue is a versatile and delicious dessert that’s perfect for any time of year – it just so happens that Easter is here. Load traditional meringue baskets with your favourite filling to celebrate the spirit of Easter. Whether its chocolate cream and speckled eggs or salted caramel and shortbread, the toppings make this sweet treat what it is.
They say you eat with your eyes, but for these, you will want to keep your mouth available too! Not only are they beautiful, but these filled mouthfuls of almondy meringue are not to be missed. Choose your flavour and filling to make a confection that will almost literally blow your mind.
Red velvet swiss roll
Sure a red velvet cake recipe is good, but red velvet swill roll is even better. Sometimes it’s worth experimenting with a classic if it means the outcome is this delicious. Baking with margarine will help to ensure the texture, flavour and mouthfeel of your swiss roll is perfect. Serve this as an afternoon tea cake for gathering family and friends.
From peanuts to speckled eggs and anything in between, a sweet cluster is a simple yet absolutely delicious morsel that will definitely sweeten your day. Melt milk chocolate, load it with your favourite trimmings, roll it into balls and let it set and you have a tailor-made sensation – Yum.
From glazed to filled, these fried treats can take you back to your childhood or hold their own as a teatime delight like no other. Opt for a flavoured custard filling for something a little more grown-up or have your favourite glaze adorned with obligatory brightly coloured sprinkles – either way, this is one sweet you do-nut want to miss!
Easter is the perfect time to get your sweet tooth on – who needs any other excuse?
