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.

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.

Neil Perry: Crumbed pork cutlet with sautéed apples, potatoes and sage


You'll need

60 gm (½ cup) plain flour 3 tbsp milk 1 egg 120 gm (1½ cups) day-old white breadcrumbs, dried slightly in the oven 4 pork cutlets, lightly pounded with a meat mallet to flatten slightly 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 60 gm (¼ cup) unsalted butter To serve: lemon wedges   Sautéed apples, potatoes and sage 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into sixths 300 gm small waxy potatoes, such as pink eye or kipfler, steamed for 20 minutes and peeled 2 garlic cloves, crushed 10-12 sage leaves 80 ml (1/3 cup) extra-virgin olive oil 30 gm unsalted butter, plus 1 tbsp extra 3 tbsp white wine 3 tbsp chicken stock

Method

  • 01
  • Place the flour on a flat plate and season with some sea salt. Whisk the milk and egg together in a bowl. Place the breadcrumbs on a separate flat plate. Dip the pork cutlets in the seasoned flour and shake away any excess flour, then dip into the combined milk and egg. Finish by dipping the cutlets into the breadcrumbs, ensuring the meat and bone are evenly coated. Shake away any excess breadcrumbs.
  • 02
  • Heat half the oil and butter in a frying pan. When the butter is foaming, add two pork cutlets and cook over medium heat until the breadcrumbs are golden. Turn and cook the other side until golden and the pork is just cooked. Place in a warm oven and repeat the process with the remaining two cutlets.
  • 03
  • Heat a pan over medium heat, and sauté the apple, potato, garlic and sage leaves in the oil and butter. When the butter is nut brown, add the wine and cook for 2 minutes, then add the stock and cook for a further 2 minutes. Add the extra butter to the pan, remove from the heat and swirl to incorporate. Season with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
  • 04
  • Place a chop on each plate, some sautéed potato and apples next to it and serve with a wedge of lemon.

"A great friend of mine says, 'If you want to sell it, crumb it'. He is of course referring to the obsession we all seem to have with crisp food. I have never met anyone who didn't like schnitzel, and this crumbed cutlet is a form of schnitzel. Here, as always, I'm suggesting you take the high road and make your own breadcrumbs, but if you don't want to, just use the bought variety and the result will still be very satisfying. If you can get your hands on some beautiful small kipflers, leave them whole in this recipe. If, instead, you are using pink eyes or similar, you may want to cut them in half." - Neil Perry
