Mary Berrys Simnel Cake - Traditional English Easter cake with 11 marzipan balls to represent the disciples excluding Judas.

Simnel Cake   Originally, this cake was made for Mothering Sunday, but it has for a long, long time been an essential Easter confection, the marzipan balls on top representing the apostles: eleven in total as, for understandable reasons, Judas is persona non grata.  I make this a very light fruit cake, totally different in taste and texture from the damp, dark offerings of Christmas.
