Recipe from St George Episcopal Church, New Orleans.
Simnel Cake, an English Tradition for Laetare Sunday, i.e. Mothering Sunday.
There are numerous other recipes available online, all with roughly the same ingredients; a light fruit cake with a layer of almond paste in the centre and on top, decorated with 11 almond paste balls representing the Apostles minus Judas. It sounds fairly simple, why not try one for your church’s coffee hour on Laetare Sunday, March 30th this year, I plan to.
