“No one really knows how chocolate became a part of the Easter celebration, it is believed to begin in France in 1875 thanks to a local confectioner named John Cadbury. Such was the fame of
this edible egg that by the end of the 19th century the entire Europe began making it – and gifting it. But before eggs became the symbols of rebirth or the start of life afresh, Simnel cake, a
fruitcake eaten in prehistoric England, were the real treat to this celebration. This Blackberry Chocolate Cake is an ode to both the treat and brings them together in a delicious slice.
