I’ve got a trio of treats for Easter weekend including sumptuous chocolate brownies, easy but pretty cupcakes and a foolproof recipe for roast lamb. These are my recipes for Channel 4 Fairy Giving You More for April, so I hope you enjoy making them as much as I did coming up with them.
Easter Nest Cupcakes
These make a good baking project for you and the kids over the holidays – very easy and very pretty. A simple chocolate sponge topped with vanilla frosting, a scattering of chopped chocolate finished with a clutch of eggs.
Gluten Free Chocolate Pecan Brownies
If you can resist eating these gooey goodies yourself, package up some of these brownies in pretty Easter themed tins to give as gifts to make a change from eggs, or to have on hand to serve up to the kids after a day running around during the school holidays.
Slow Roasted Lamb Shoulder with Garlic and Rosemary
Are you cooking Easter Sunday lunch for friends and family this weekend? Well here’s my simple and tasty recipe for Spring lamb. Shoulder is a cheaper cut so great if you’re watching the budget. The longer cooking time and plethora of aromatics make for a delicious centre piece to your Easter feast.
Apologies again for the blog being so quiet… we moved into our new house two weeks ago and i’ve been madly unpacking, doing all the associated admin and trying to keep the boys on an even keel. We have no functioning washing machine or internet connection beyond me turning my phone into a wifi hotspot. Thank goodness for my daily dog walk on the beach… it’s keeping me sane!
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter – I hope you have a lush long weekend!
