Summary: I had the brilliant idea of making these Marzipan filled Chocolates after making my Christmas cake. I had made my own marzipan and was left with some after decorating the cake. Marzipan and chocolate really are a delicious pairing, and you can of course make these any time of the year, and use store bought marzipan for a more speedy preparation. The chocolate is a basic fail-proof raw vegan recipe, absolutely delicious on its own too, if you don't have any marzipan, or if you want a nut-free treat.
Summary: Treat your loved ones to a healthier version of hot cross buns this Easter :
Wholemeal flour instead of white.
Muscavado sugar instead of white sugar.
No eggs, no dairy.
No butter or margarine or oil, so lower in fat and therefore in calories.
No added salt, so low in Sodium.
For a more traditional looking treat, please feel free to top the buns with crosses made of thin strips of natural marzipan.
Makes about 12 buns
Summary: A lovely recipe to relieve the munchies at Easter tea time. Traditionally, Simnel cake was made for Mothering Day. Girls working in service were allowed to use the leftover dried fruits from the Christmas celebrations to make this cake as a present for their mothers. Nowadays, Simnel cakes are often made for Easter.
