Brilliant bakes

Our March issue is packed with inspiration for brilliant bakes, from this outrageously good orange & chocolate tart to a truly spectacular gravity-defying sweetie cake and a beautiful display of cupcakes by celebrity chefs to raise awareness for Red Nose Day (24th March).

Mum's the word

Planning a Mother's Day lunch? How about this amazing fall-off-the-bone butterflied leg of lamb with coriander? The recipe comes courtesy of Rachel Allen, who shares the recipes handed down by her mum. In addition, 2012 Bake Off winner John Whaite and his mum Linda share their favourite Mother's Day bakes: John’s white chocolate & raspberry cake and Linda’s fruity traybake.

Budget bites

We know that balancing your budget is hugely important to Easy Cook readers – but that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on taste. Check out this month's Super Saver Suppers – 10 simple meals that won’t break the bank, each taking just 15 minutes to prepare. We also give you four twists on the mighty fish finger sandwich. 

Buy local

Buying local and eating seasonally matters to us all, so this month we’re celebrating one of spring’s star ingredients – rhubarb. Bake a rhubarb buckle or this rhubarb & custard tart. Or, for something lighter, try tonka bean panna cotta with roasted rhubarb or rhubarb & star anise sorbet.
