EILE’s food writer and cook, Dermie O’Sullivan, tells us how to create a wonderful Simnel Cake – just in time for Easter!

Dermie says:

There are so many recipes for Simnel Cake, but the one I use includes an age old method my grandmother taught me, which really does completely transform the cake. My grandmother’s tip was to soak the dry mixed fruits in whiskey overnight before making the cake. This completely enhances the flavour of the cake, giving more flavoursome, plumped up mixed fruits. The best thing of all about this cake is that you need to rest the cake in an airtight container to allow the cake to mature. This means you can have the cake ready days ahead of Easter Sunday. It really is a very simple cake to make, and it looks absolutely sensational served as an afternoon tea treat on Easter Sunday. Enjoy every slice!  Continue Reading »
