It is almost Easter time which means one thing; chocolate!
It isn’t just chocolate though; many are not aware but it is traditional to eat hot cross buns on Good Friday. They are part of Christian superstition which means that by sharing one of the sticky fruity treats it cements friendships; any excuse to put on your Aprons and bake a batch!
If hot cross buns aren’t your cup of tea try baking chocolate Easter cakes or, biscuits and brownies for a super fun weekend that will get the entire family involved!
Go all out this Easter with chocolate meringues for desserts but for the main course you may want to avoid chocolate. Instead try cooking roast shoulder of lamb with herbs and honey; or have a traditional show stopping meal of roast pork and vegetables.
For people who prefer fish, a lovely sea bass roasted in rosemary and lemon would make a perfect dish for the holiday; and vegetarians can enjoy Easter with a scrumptious griddled artichoke and red onion paella. The zingy menu will definitely bring a citrus blast of fresh air to anyone who’s overdone it with the chocolate!
So get all the kids involved stirring and decorating this Easter; they’ll love sticking their fingers into the chocolate mix and with our fantastic Childrens Aprons you don’t need to fret about any mess.
