Littlemummy’s Guide to Easter

The holidays are here again, only ten minutes since Christmas it’s time to stuff our faces again in the name of religion.

The Littlemummy household have been trying and testing some goodies ready for the festivities.

Playmobil Easter Eggs

Too close to Christmas for chocolate? Give these Playmobil Easter Eggs a go. Inside each one is a mini playmobil set to play with either on its own, or as an add on to one of your other sets.

Each egg is only £5.99, the same price as many of the chocolate ones. The range this year includes a mini playground (shown) and a knight on horseback.

Available to buy from: Toys R Us, John Lewis, the Playmobil online shop playmobil.co.uk and other good toy shops

Welch’s Juices

We’ve been sent a massive selection of Welch’s juices including Purple Grape and White Grape & Raspberry. All the juices are reduced sugar and so qualify as ‘light’. When I posted this picture on social media I got lots of people saying how tasty Welch’s is and they’re not wrong. The whole family including Erin is hooked. I love a fresh juice in the morning, the perfect accompaniment to an Easter breakfast.

Raspberry and Rhubarb Shloer

We like shloer in our house. We don’t drink much alcohol so it’s a nice grown up drink that goes well with sunday lunch. Erin loves it as she feels grown up drinking it out of a wine glass. Shloer’s new flavour for summer is Raspberry and Rhubarb. It’s like summer in a glass, even though we were surrounded by snow I could easily imagine it as the perfect barbecue drink. Now we just need the weather!

To go with your rhubarb (did you know rhubarb is botanically classed as a vegetable, not a fruit) tipple try this

Shloer’s Rhubarb Crumble

Ingredients

10 sticks of rhubarb

4oz brown sugar

6oz self-raising flour

4oz butter

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

5 tablespoons of caster sugar

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.

Slice the rhubarb into 1-inch pieces and place on an oven tray. Drizzle with some water and the caster sugar and soften in the oven for 10 minutes;

Place the cooked rhubarb in an ovenproof baking dish and add the vanilla;

In a bowl, rub the butter into the flour and brown sugar to make the crumble topping. Then sprinkle it over the rhubarb and bake in the oven for approx. 45 minutes or until the crumble topping is golden-brown and the rhubarb filling is bubbling.

Serve with double cream or vanilla ice-cream….
