Woodlands Park Hotel Pastry Chef Sarah talks us through her perfect Easter time treat.

Everyone loves Easter time, Easter is the time of the year dedicated to all things chocolate and in the kitchen, it can lead to some great deserts. 

My favourite Easter dessert is baked vanilla and cream egg cheesecake! I know it doesn’t sound too refined but its Easter after all. Easter reminds me of going on egg hunts and always eating too much chocolate, so this indulgent dessert definitely hits the spot. I personally feel that it is best served with a salted caramel sauce as it really brings out the best flavours!
