Easter Baking Recipes

Dust off your mixing spoon, man your oven and have your eggs at the ready as we present some of our all-time favourite Easter baking recipes, from praline bread pudding to those all-important hot cross buns.

Italian Easter tart

"This is a traditional tart eaten in Naples at Easter," says Ingram. "The legend goes that a mermaid called Parthenope in the Gulf of Napoli would sing to celebrate the arrival of spring each year. One year, to say thank you, the Neapolitans offered her gifts of ricotta, flour, eggs, wheat, perfumed orange flowers and spices. She took them to her kingdom under the sea, where the gods made them into a cake. I love to add nibs of chocolate to Parthenope cake because I think it marries nicely with the candied orange and sultanas, but, really, do you need an excuse to add chocolate to anything?" Start this recipe a day ahead to prepare the pastry and soak the sultanas.

Chocolate Recipes for Easter

Easter + chocolate: it just makes sense. So, in celebration of the annual cocoa frenzy we’ve put together a collection of our hottest chocolate recipes. You’re welcome.

Apple and cinnamon hot cross buns

The mix of candied apple and dried apple combined with a sticky cinnamon glaze provides a new twist on an old favourite. These buns are equally good served warm on the day of baking, or several days later, toasted, with lashings of butter.

You'll need

500 gm piece of wagyu tri-tip (point of the rump), at room temperature 1½ tsp shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven-spice mixture) 1 tsp grapeseed oil or olive oil 1 small (about 400gm) daikon (white radish) 2 Lebanese cucumbers 50 gm (4 cups) mixed Asian greens and herbs, including mizuna, tatsoi and coriander 1½ tbsp sesame seeds, toasted 2 tbsp lemon juice 1 tbsp rice vinegar 1 tbsp shoyu (Japanese soy sauce) ¾ tsp caster sugar ¼ tsp finely grated ginger ½ tsp sesame oil

Method

  • 01
  • Place steak on a plate, sprinkle all over with shichimi togarashi, then rub with 1 tsp grapeseed oil.

Remove from pan, wrap in foil and leave for 20 minutes.
