With Easter around the corner, we peek into the recipe books of Diana Fernandes, the wedding cake and sweets expert behind Diane’s in Malad, and Desiree Bradford, the owner of Bandra’s Goodie Bag Co. Giving us a traditional take on the classic Easter egg, Fernandes shares her mother’s recipe that she’s tweaked to perfection over the years. This includes adding almonds for softer and more flavourful marzipan dough.

Bradford’s chocolate surprise egg

The nuanced flavours of marzipan might not be a favourite with kids. So for her mini clients, Bradford adds the chocolate surprise egg to her Easter menu. Filled with candy, jujubes as well as tiny marzipan eggs, the joy of eating a chocolate egg doubles when you break it open for the treats inside.

>> Compound chocolate from Morde or Vanleer
>> An Easter egg mould
>> Treats to fill the chocolate casing like Skittles, Gems, jujubes, jellybeans, and gummy bears

Melt the chocolate using the double boiling method or in the microwave for one minute at a time to avoid burning. Cover both sides of the mould in thin layers, cooling the chocolate between each layer. Form a thick shell and rim so that the chocolate does not melt easily and you can join both halves. Fill one side with the treats. Join the cooled shells with melted chocolate.

Fernandes’ marzipan Easter egg

>> 200 gm cashews
>> 50 gm almonds (blanched, dried, and ground)
>> 400 gm powder sugar
>> 1/2 teaspoon almond essence
>> 1 teaspoon rose water 
>> 2 eggs whites


Mix all the ingredients together. Cook it on a medium flame for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring continuously, and till a crust forms on top. The dough will look soft but will solidify once cool. When cool, divide the dough into sections and add food colours if you want. Shape the dough using moulds. Decorate with royal icing or gum paste flowers.
