Features delicious Simnel cakes. Simnel cake is a light fruit cake that is toasted and eaten during Easter in the United Kingdom, Ireland and some other countries. It was originally made for the middle Sunday of Lent, also known as Refreshment Sunday, Mothering Sunday, Sunday of the Five Loaves, and Simnel Sunday - after the cake. Simnel is understood to mean the finest white bread, from the Latin simila - "fine flour". Eleven or twelve marzipan balls were used to decorate the cake, with a story that the balls represent the twelve apostles, minus Judas or Jesus and the twelve apostles, minus Judas.

Based on an illustration made for professional bakers in the 1870s by Maclaren and Sons, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
