A few of my best Easter recipes Drizzle and Dip

Must Try

Easter falls in my favourite season of the year and I love all the delicious food that goes with that. We transition out of summer into cooler days with beautiful light and auburn colours everywhere. Here is a round-up of my favourite recipes to make around Easter.

Baking at Easter is always a good idea and I have you covered with these stout hot cross buns which are way easier to make than you might think and so much better than anything you will find in a shop. This is one of my all-time favourite recipes on my website.

For extra convenience, I have also made these into a loaf which is easier to slice and toast vs the buns. To make everyone happy the recipe can be made into a loaf and 8 hot cross buns. They have been baked so many times by friends of the blog and the feedback has been amazing.

These chunky New York chocolate chip cookies with Easter eggs are the perfect chocolate-baked treat.

The hot cross cinnamon sticky buns or biscotti with hot cross bun flavours are another two delicious options.

If you are having an indulgent Easter feast, I think it’s nice to keep the starter quite casual and rather have people nibble on a few light snacks to liven up the appetite. My best-ever chicken liver pate – another classic from the blog, is what I like. Perhaps on some Melba toast. A drop of marmalade gives it a sweet edge.

Or these tomato & basil crostini with whipped goat’s cheese. Both can be made in advance.

I always love my best-whipped feta with roasted tomatoes and basil. This is so easy to assemble and a real crowd-pleaser.

For the main event, nothing beats a roast lamb and I love this slow-roasted version with rosemary, garlic and harissa. It cooks itself leaving you plenty of time to do other things.

I think my Greek lamb moussaka with aubergines is another lovely Easter lamb dish. Perfect to make in advance and serve with a few sides.

For a stylish dinner party dish, a herb-crusted rack of lamb is a winner.

If you don’t like lamb, this comforting roast chicken with stout, rosemary & honey is a lovely option and both should be served with duck fat roast potatoes.

My favourite Chicken with white wine, herbs & garlic is a winner.

You can’t go wrong with a classic beef, Bourguignon, or my lamb shank pie with red wine, rosemary & bay is a showstopper.

Whilst we are on pies, my classic beef and mushroom pie is another option and so comforting.

If you are looking for the best chocolate dessert for your Easter Feast, look no further than my utterly decadent and delicious chocolate malva pudding.

For dessert, I love this hot cross bun pudding with chocolate and orange, but the pink swirl meringues with pomegranate syrup are a show-stopper, as are my rose meringues with pistachios.

I also love the plum torte because it’s in my top 5 favourite things to bake and plums are in season now. This sticky toffee pudding with figs is a real winner and perfect to feed a crowd.
