Five ideas to celebrate Easter

6 Mar

1. Make a simnel cake

Rich simnel cakes were originally made to celebrate the end of Lent and enjoyed for Mothering Sunday, although they have recently become part of Easter celebrations. This simple yet flavoursome Earl Grey simnel cake is perfect to share.

2. Cook with eggs

Eggs are a symbol of Easter and rebirth. Nutritious and very versatile, they add a pop of colour to minipizzas or this spring soup. We’ll definitely be trying these Chinese style Earl Grey marbled eggs too!

3. Easter eggs. 

Can you imagine Easter without Easter eggs? Here are some of our favourite DIY ideas.

4. Bake some hot cross buns

Associated with Good Friday since Christian times. This recipe with spices and the rich taste of Amber oolong is our favourite!

5. Sow your seeds

Calendulas, poppies and snapdragons or freesias, irises and anemones. It’s time to sow your favourite seeds and plant your favourite bulbs!
