Baking at Easter

It was the Easter weekend last weekend.  And like all weekends of note, it included some baking.

First up was a sticky ginger cake.  You may remember this recipe as Sticky Orange Cake, but with the use of some ginger preserve, some ground ginger and a pinch of cinnamon, we got us a new cake.  This one was actually better, I used a tablespoon more preserve than the recipe and it was much moister.  Plus before smearing with warm preserve on the top I made twice as many holes in the surface to soak up the preserve.  Yum yum yum!

Secondly, I made an Easter Rocky Road.  I had to cut up a whole load of Bunny shaped marshmallows – that felt a bit mean!  So I used 200g dark chocolate, 100g marshmallows, 100g Golden Syrup, 100g of unsalted butter and 100g of pink wafer biscuits.  Then topped off with a SMALL packet of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs.  I mean, come on, we don’t want to over do it!
