5 Spring Bakes You Need To Try!
Finally, spring is here! To celebrate the start of warmer days, we’ve put together a few of our favourite springtime bakes to help give you a spring in your step. From pastel colours to rhubarb crumble, there’s something for everyone to get those taste buds tingling.
Lemon Meringue Pie
Meringues are a very versatile dessert, that’s why we love lemon meringue pie so much. The zesty lemon is what gives this bake a real kick and with the help of Dawn’s ready to use Lemon Filling you can enjoy this dessert in no time! Why not make this dessert a little extra indulgent by adding chocolate extract or cocoa powder to your meringue mix?
Hotcross Bread & Butter Pudding
If you like bread and butter pudding why not try this twist with hot cross buns instead? This is a great way to use up your leftover hot cross buns and turn them into a tasty pudding that no one can resist. Why not add in a few chocolate chips or a dash of orange flavouring to really spruce up this old classic?
Forget the classic apple crumble and relive your childhood favourites as this spring it’s all about rhubarb crumble! Packed with a tangy rhubarb filling, this irresistible dessert will take you to comfort food heaven in no time, especially with the help of Dawn’s Crumble Mix. Don’t forget, when cooked rhubarb tends to shrink in size, so don’t be afraid to pack your crumble full of rhubarb.
Classic Victoria Sponge
You can’t go wrong with this classic cake and if cupcakes aren’t your thing then this larger sized cake will definitely be for you. For a tasty tea time treat that everyone can enjoy fill with whipped cream and fresh berries (while they’re in seasons!) to take your sponge cake to new heights.
Cake pops are perfect for any occasion and are a great gift alternative to a classic Easter egg. The designs for cake pops are absolutely endless, but for spring we like to keep it simple and create beautiful pastel coloured cake pops, sure to impress everyone. Why not whip up a batch of these dainty sweet treats to welcome in springtime?
