Special Edition Simnel Flapjack
It's like Simnel Cake, but not as you know it. Traditionally associated with Easter, but also eaten around Mothering Sunday as a welcome respite from Lenten fasts.
Like most British food eaten during winter and early spring, the Simnel Flapjack contains lots of dried fruit, but it is much lighter than our boozy Stollen Flapjack and contains a layer of marzipan on top instead of within. The 'good' (?!) news is that it doesn't contain chocolate OR alcohol so won't ruin most people's Lent! Unlike the Cake (and the adjacent photo), the flapjack comes with 12 marzipan-topped, each symbolising Jesus’s disciples INCLUDING the treacherous Judas 😬
It's also suitable for vegans. Yay!
