Easy Easter Baking


I love Easter, mainly because it means warmer weather is coming, but also because Easter baking is so great. There are so many ways you can get creative at this time of year, I mean it is literally a holiday surrounded by chocolate – ideal!

I like to find recipes that are easy to make because when you’re in a rush or just simply want to bake something straightforward, its perfect to have a few recipes in mind. So, here are the 4 recipes I have found and will continue to refer back to every Easter!


• Mini Egg Rocky Road •

-   400g smooth white chocolate
-   100g digestive biscuits, broken into small pieces
-   150g mini marshmallows
-    90g mini eggs


I will leave the link to this recipe down at the bottom of the post, but it is super easy to make. Essentially you melt the chocolate and mix everything else in with it and leave to set in the fridge. So straightforward and delicious!

• Shredded Wheat Nests •

-   200g milk chocolate
-   85g (or as much as you need) shredded wheat
-   Mini eggs


These are an Easter classic for a reason – they are so tasty and take such a short amount of time to make. Basically, just melt the chocolate over heat, break up the shredded wheat, then stir both together. You should be able to make 6 nests with this recipe, so pour the mixture into 6 cupcake cases and place a mini egg on top then leave to set in the fridge.

• Mary Berry’s Easter Biscuits •

-   100g unsalted butter, softened
-   75g caster sugar, plus extra for dusting
-   1 free-range egg, separated
-   Zest of a lemon
-   200g plain flower, plus extra for dusting
-   50g currants
-   1-2 tablespoons milk


I have always followed Mary Berry’s recipes because she really is the Queen of baking, with each of her recipes being delicious. This one is a bit more complex to explain, so I will leave the full recipe at the bottom of the post, so you can follow along with Mary!

• Cheat Vanilla Cupcakes •




These are ideal when you are in a rush, and really are tasty. From most supermarkets you can get pre-prepared baking, where everything is ready for you to use straight from the packet. I got mine from Morrison’s, however I’ve made some before from Asda that were really nice as well – so any supermarket should do. I added my own star sprinkles, but some sprinkles came in the box as well. This is a super easy way to make an Easter treat, and no-one needs to know that it only took you 5 minutes to mix everything together!

So, these are my top 4 easy Easter baking recipes, I hope if you try them out you really enjoy the taste and the ease of making them. What are your favourite Easter recipes?
