Easter has its roots in ancient pagan celebrations prior to Christianity, which represented rejoicing and fertility at the start of the planting season and the beginning of spring.

If you decide to enjoy these days in England with your family, you will be able to enjoy some of its traditional recipes. Take note of these 10 that we share with you. And remember that there are plenty of stores where you can buy all the necessary ingredients.

Easter Eggs


All supermarkets are full of chocolate eggs of different kinds and sizes. Cards with drawings of eggs and rabbits are also given as gifts. A very famous custom is to paint and decorate eggs, especially among children.

Hot Cross Buns


During these days, buns called Hot Cross Buns are served. These buns, made with spices and raisins and glazed, are decorated with a kind of cross on top.

Easter cookies


These cookies are made with raisins and a spice mixture of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and coriander.

Simnel cake


It is made of candied fruit and nuts and decorated with 11 balls made of marzipan, representing each of the apostles, except Judas. It is also decorated with more typical Easter elements such as bunnies, flowers or eggs.



A lesser known tradition that is celebrated in some towns on Ash Wednesday is a race in which participants run with a pancake pan in which they carry their pancakes. They must spin it in the air as they run, avoiding the pancake falling to the ground.

Baked ham


This ham with apricot stuffing is an excellent version of the traditional baked ham with its fruity stuffing.



As Easter falls in the spring, the favorite meat in England is lamb. A simple stuffed roast leg of lamb, or a boneless leg stuffed with fresh herbs, is always a favorite. It is delicious served hot, but this recipe also serves as a sausage for sandwiches and light lunches.

Royal Jersey potatoes


Grown on the island of Jersey, these small potatoes are sweet and need very little to create a delicious side dish.

Chocolate cupcakes
