Wow, Easter is early this year. It feels like it was just Christmas yesterday and since then we’ve survived January, celebrated Valentine’s Day (or not), eaten some pancakes, remembered our Mums on Mothering Sunday and really long Bank Holiday Weekend is here, thank goodness.
Here at Research Talent Hub we are going to do some baking this Easter! Lots of people make Easter biscuits in the shape of bunnies or eggs, and others make those delicious choccy nest cakes that usually have a few mini eggs on top, but we’re going to do something different. We are going to make a Simnel Cake!
Unlike Christmas Cake, Simnel Cake is a light fruit cake which was traditionally eaten on Mothering Sunday, which was a day of refreshment during a Lenten fast. Now, however, we tend to eat the cake at Easter and it is decorated with eleven marzipan balls representing the twelve apostles (minus Judas who betrayed Jesus). Nigella’s recipe for Simnel Cake is good and has been tried and tested at RTH in the past. Good luck bakers!
If you’re not into baking and want to use the long bank holiday Easter weekend job searching then visit our JOBS page. We will be updating it regularly during the Easter break with exciting new jobs in market research. We have a selection of both: qualitative and quantitative market research jobs from Research Executive through to Research Directors levels in London, Surrey and Manchester!
