The sharp, sweet flavour combined with the warm, crumbly topping pairs perfectly with vanilla ice cream on a warm, spring day.

Spring Recipes: Homemade Carrot Cake

If you have a potager garden or allotment, you may have an abundance of carrots that are ready to eat. Although they’re classed as more of a summer vegetable, they can be grown all year round in Britain. Why not use your spring harvest to create a delicious carrot cake for your spring offering?


This simple carrot cake recipe is lightly spiced with a delicious cream cheese frosting. You could decorate it with lemon zest, a handful of chopped walnuts or pecans.

Spring Recipes: Mini Egg Blondies

A delicious twist on the classic brownie, blondies are a popular alternative.


Due to their flexibility, blondies are great for using up any leftover Easter chocolate. This recipe uses chocolate mini eggs, but you could swap for an alternative, such as caramel eggs or creme eggs.
