Anyone baked this cake before? 

 

Hi there,

I've just seen your post.

Yeh, I've been baking Simnel Cakes for my family's traditional Easter Lunch gathering.

Are you into baking as well?

Cheers, Mike

Hey bro,

well, it is actually a much lighter version of the rich-fruit cake served at Christmas, as the marzipan layers make it

rich in that way also with the 11 marzipan balls on top.

 

The star of the Easter Simnel Cake is the Marzipan, that's why the cake shouldn't overpower the marzipan.

I tend to use the richest possible marzipan... darker yellow, rather than the pale types, then place the cake

under a very hot grill to brown it as quickly as possible.

 

If you don't want to bake the fruit cake, just buy one, I find the ones at M&S nice too.

 

Actually, I've already begun my Christmas and New Year Fruit-cake preparations... will start baking

by the third week of Sept.

 

Cheers, Mike :)

Hey bro,

just as we have Christmas Cakes(rich-fruit cakes), well this Simnel Cake is a traditional Easter Cake(light-fruit cake with marzipan layers and grilled!).

It is still mostly a family tradition cake, not commercially available as far as I've seen here.

If you're into baking, do give it a try... it tastes amazing!!

Cheers, Mike :)

I just wish u to maintain will do.....

 

‘cos i feel as we aged, very hard  and i m the body type that smell cakes(be it mcake or whatever) , just by smelling, i m fattened easily (ref to those 3 body types that all of u gym rats should knw, i m not into gym)

if this carry on, u can no longer release your impressive photos on certain threads.

 

Anyway, i m ok w unicorn cakes this and that, fusion mooncakes etc but just like with some restaurants, take pandan flavour or coloured food.

we all insisted of using real pandan leaves, dragonfruit to create the colour and flavour, not using green and fushia pink respective colouring/essence to create those colours:

all insisted on healthier choice.
