Easter Baking

 
I've been busy in the kitchen this morning.  There are certain recipes that I will always associate with Easter, such as these delightful Easter cupcakes, decorated with mini eggs.  What better combination than 70% organic chocolate ganache and chocolate cake?

 
Other recipes may not be traditional Easter bakes, but more of a twist on the theme.  I have made a Simnel cake in the past, but it was not my favourite recipe.  Instead, I've taken the theme of fruit cake with marzipan, but used Nigella's recipe for Marzipan Fruit Cake from How To Be A Domestic Goddess.

 
 
This is a moist and delicious fruit cake and I'm looking forward to enjoying it with a cup of tea.  Care to join me?  I'll put the kettle on.
