This is the first of many recipes for April and hope you enjoy.
Having looked around for an Easter cake that took my eye, I must admit this really did catch me straight away. I am a big fan of the Good Food website and the recipes they show. This is a take on the traditional Easter Simnel cake and the classic Bakewell. I am a fan of both so this recipe was definitely a winner.
I have adapted the recipe slightly as never had a rectangular flan tin so I used my 20 cm round tin. This worked as expected, wonderful, deep and full of flavor. I have also changed a couple of the ingredient quantities from the recipe online as I felt there would have been too much.
The highlight to this recipe was when my family returned home from a trip away to the welcoming smell of almonds, which made them desperate to try, and they thoroughly enjoyed it when we could finally cut the cake up.
I hope you like this recipe as much as we did and here is the link for the original recipe on BBC Good Food.
