Easter weekend is a great opportunity to get the family together and indulge in a spectacular Sunday lunch, your reward from at least pretending to have stuck to Lent over the past forty days. This collection of Easter dessert recipes is packed full of inspiration, whether you're looking for some classic British puddings, elegant tarts and cheesecakes or a little fruity respite from chocolate before the egg hunt begins.
Sweet tarts make excellent desserts for family occasions, with it easy to squeeze an extra slice or two out of them for any last minute visitors. Graham Garrett's Treacle tart recipe is given an extra tang with some seasonal blood orange, or go full-on citrus with Dominic Chapman's signature Lemon tart. Paul A Young's Sea-salted caramel tart is the perfect chocolate Easter dessert for committed chocoholics, as is Josh Eggleton's stunning Triple layered chocolate tart, served alongside a zesty orange compote.
Rhubarb season is still going strong across the Easter period, offering the perfect note of sharpness to contrast against the other sweet treats of the day. Emily Watkins serves her Baked custard with a refreshing rhubarb granita, while Dominic Chapman layers rhubarb, custard and cream in a colourful Rhubarb trifle.
