Let's Bake An Easter Cake!
If you thought a fruit cake was just for Christmas, you’d be very mistaken as a Simnel cake is a traditional fruity Easter bake with a marzipan twist!
A classic Simnel cake is packed with almond flavour due to a layer of marzipan in the centre of the cake and another on top of the cake.
Why does a Simnel Cake have marzipan balls on the top layer?
This is because each marzipan ball was traditionally used to symbolise one of Jesus’ apostles!
