Easter Yeast Cake

Did someone say springtime? It’s time to bake light and fluffy cakes!



  • Grease the mold with butter and dust with flour. Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and make a well in the middle.

  • In a jug, mix the yeast with 2 tablespoons of warm milk and dissolve. Pour the yeast into the flour well, sprinkle with a little flour from the edges, cover and leave for half an hour.

  • Add the eggs, butter and the remaining warm milk and the sugar to the bowl and knead into a stiff dough.

  • Transfer the dough into the prepared mold and leave to rise for 15 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C for fan assisted ovens and bake for 50 minutes or until baked through and golden brown. Leave to cool.


  • Mix the icing sugar with the cream and rum until you have a thick, glossy glaze. Carefully remove the cake from the mold once cool and pour the glaze over the cake. Garnish with flowers!
