baking treats to make this easter, tanya bakes

As it's the week before Easter Sunday and I am sure the majority of you will be celebrating your Easter break with your loved ones, I thought I'd share some easy quick baking treats to bake with your loved ones or by yourself to share this Easter. If you haven't guessed already, for those who are new to my blog, I am obsessed with baking...enjoy.

Lemon Drizzle Cake | I have written a recipe post about this on my blog before. I love baking this cake because it is so easy to bake and I can remember this recipe any day. You can put as many or as little lemon zest in this cake as you want, it's all about preference. You will need; 170g of butter, 170g of self-raising flour, 170g of white caster sugar, 1 tsp of baking powder, zest of 2 lemons and milk if the cake is a bit hard but it shouldn't be. After 35-40 minutes on gas mark, 4-5 take it out, and enjoy!

Chocolate Cookies | I love baking these cookies! They are quick and easy only takes less than 25 minutes including preparation. You will need 2 different types of chocolate (milk, dark or white) and you can add in as much chocolate as you want. I am a chocolate freak so add it loads (whoops). You will need 200g butter, 300g caster sugar, 275 self-raising flour, 75g of cocoa powder and a dash of milk. Make the chocolate dough into little balls or big balls and evenly space it out on a baking tray. After 15-20 minutes it will be done! Enjoy with a glass of milk. 

Chocolate Nests | These are one of the quickest baking treats in this list. You will need to melt 225g of chocolate with 2 tbsp golden syrup and 50g of butter over a pan of simmering water. In the cupcake cakes, use shredded wheat or cornflakes and mix together with the chocolate mixture. And voila! Decorate it any way you want. These are addictive so make loads. 

Vanilla Cupcakes With Mini Eggs | Vanilla cupcakes, another easy bake. You will need 110g of self-raising flour, 110g of caster sugar, 110g of butter, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 2 eggs and a dash of milk. Mix this all together and put them into cupcake cases for 18-20 mins. Whilst this is baking, make your buttercream icing. If you never iced a cake before, I'd suggest watching this video on Youtube. Put two mini eggs on the top of your icing, and you've got a gorgeous Easter friendly cupcake. 

Victoria Sponge Cake | This is just a classic cake that everyone loves right? A Victoria Sponge, a British classic. You will need 200g of self-raising flour, 200g of caster sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla essence and 4 free range eggs. After they have baked for 25-30 minutes, lay them aside to cool. Spread one cake with raspberry jam and whipped cream and raspberries/strawberries and put the cakes on top. Dust the top with icing sugar and you're done.
