Simnel Cake has been a traditional tiffin at Easter for years, dating back to medieval times. But believe it or not, it was originally made for the middle Sunday of lent aka Mothering Sunday! A rich and moreish fruit cake packed full of spices, raisins, eggs, butter and flour.
Over the top rests a marzipan blanket stuck on with apricot jam..
It's gently toasted under a grill...
Before being decorated with flowers - something the Victorian's kick started.
Before being dished up for tea.
