it is again Easter time and I finally came to my blog entry for the Easter cakes, very happy for that. I still remember, that I already wanted to share an Easter cake recipe last year, but somehow missed it. Anyway, now I have it on time, more or less. 😉

When Easter stays almost in front of your door I already start to get happy in the days before. Well, I think the main point is that we only had a four days work week and next week will be the same, wohooo!! As we are not celebrating Easter in a traditional way anymore, I thought to go at least for something sweet to share, which means that we certainly do celebrate. 🙂

Now I am just enjoying the days off, having time for myself and sleep long in the mornings. I think that these Easter cakes are perfect for having a small dessert after a good Easter lunch.

Happy Easter to everybody and hopefully you are enjoying the time as I do… 😉
