I first made this Apple & Ginger Simnel Cake a couple of years ago for friends and it went down really well, which was all the excuse I needed to make it again, this time to share with my family.
It’s really easy and makes a nice change from the traditional version which uses dried fruit. In fact, if you were to omit the marzipan, it would make for a great tea-time treat whenever it took your fancy, which could easily become quite often.
You can find the recipe here on the Waitrose website. So you know, I tend to reduce the amount of crystallised ginger used to about 150g as this feels like plenty to me.
Oh, and a word to the wise; watch the cake like a hawk whilst it’s under the grill as mine is a little toastier looking than I’d have liked (that will teach me to multi-task).
Happy Easter everyone!
