Spring dessert recipes

Bake a fruity dessert or two this season with our spring dessert recipes. The sun is staying out for longer, so celebrate with sweet treats like strawberries, gooseberries, or blackcurrants in a tart, crumble, or pavlova topped with lashings of cream.

Our spring dessert recipes make the most of the season’s flavours: think elderflower, lemon, gooseberries, and of course, shocking pink rhubarb!

There’s also some classic spring treats like pannacotta, posset, lemon meringue pie, and cheesecake. Enjoy!
