With everyone at home, it’s important to keep occupied and try to keep a normal routine. Whether you live alone or have kids to occupy, our Easter baking recipes are enough to put a smile on your face no matter your situation. We have also made sure the recipes are simple, using your cupboard staples so there’s no need to buy anything extra in.

Why not give these a try and let us know how you get on!

Classic crispy cakes – makes 12

A classic and so simple to put together!

Ingredients:

100g of cornflakes, rice crispies or a cereal of your choice

100g of a chocolate of your choice

50g butter

3 tbsp of maple syrup or honey

Sweets, nuts, dried fruit or sprinkle for decoration.

Method:

Put the cornflakes in a large bowl

Melt the butter in a saucepan over a low heat then add the chocolate and the maple syrup.

Once those items are melted and have cooled slightly, pour the mixture over the cornflakes and stir in.

You can then spoon the mixture into cupcake cases, put on a baking tray and pop the baking tray in the fridge for them to set.

The microwave mug cake is a lot of fun to make, so quick and perfect if you’re baking for 1.

4 tbsp self-raising flour

2 tbsp cocoa powder

4 tbsp sugar

1 egg

3 tbsp milk

3 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil

A few drops of vanilla essence

2 tbsp of chocolate chips, nuts or dried fruit

Method:

Add the flour, sugar and cocoa powder to the largest mug you have. Then add the egg and mix.

Add the milk, the oil, vanilla essence and chocolate chips/nuts or dried fruit and mix.

Once everything is well mixed, place the mug in the microwave and heat for 1.5 – 2minutes. Keep an eye on it as it will rise.

5 Ingredient Brownies

When you think about making brownies, you may think mess and lots of ingredients but with our 5 ingredient recipe, these couldn’t be more simple!

Ingredients:

200g butter melted

400g sugar
