The Best Easter Cakes and Treats in Newcastle (and beyond!)

Easter is one of my favourite weekends of the year. Four days off work and the chance to scoff loads of calories without any guilt? Yes please! Before you make your plans for the weekend I thought I'd share with you some of the best Easter treats available in Newcastle (and beyond!) Whether you're a creme egg addict, love hot cross buns or go giddy for mini eggs, I've got something for everyone! Enjoy

Mini Egg Tiffin at Olive and Bean

The tiffins at Olive and Bean are legendary in Newcastle but over Easter you'll discover a special kind of tiffin that's only available when the Easter Bunny is in Toon. The mini egg tiffin is filled with crushed brightly coloured eggs, goes perfectly with a nice cup of coffee and, if you're feeling very generous, is a great treat to share with your favourite person.

Find Olive and Bean at: 17-19 Clayton Street, NE1 5PN

Creme Egg Ice-Cream at Di Meos

Last year we became a little obsessed with Di Meos ice-cream (you'll never get me to confess to you exactly how many cones we had!) and we spent many evenings driving to Whitley Bay for an ice-cream and stroll along the seafront. Therefore I'm definitely qualified to tell you that the Easter special Creme Egg ice-cream at Di Meos is, without a doubt, the best ice-cream you will ever have! Impossible to eat without a bright yellow chin, it's so creamy, so sticky and probably the best thing about Easter in the North East. Please make sure you go and get yourself one before they go!

Find Di Meos at: 9 Marine Avenue, Whitley Bay, NE26 1LX

Creme Egg Bombs at The Brownie Bar

If Cadbury's Creme Eggs are your weakness then you'll find loads of treats at The Brownie Bar. Their Eldon Garden counter and Chillingham Road cafe are bursting with Creme Egg treats including their famous brownies. My favourite is this gorgeous Creme Egg Bomb, ask for it served warm and just watch as the molten creme egg oozes all over your plate. Delicious!

Find The Brownie Bar at: 237-239 Chillingham Road, NE6 5LJ or at Eldon Garden Shopping Centre

Hot Cross Buns at Mason + Rye

I love Hot Cross Buns, they are the perfect breakfast food over Easter! Slightly toasted and slathered in butter - perfect! We always stay clear of the soggy offerings in the supermarket and love to pick up fresh locally produced buns, you'll find these delicious guys at Mason + Rye in the Fenwick's Food Hall - with their perfect sticky top they are the ultimate Easter treat.

Find Mason + Rye at: Fenwick Food Hall, 39 Northumberland St NE1 7AF

Mini Egg Cupcakes at Pet Lamb Patisserie

If you want a guaranteed counter full of Easter goodies then you need to get yourself down to Pet Lamb Patisserie in the Grainger Market. The smell of creme egg brownies makes you tummy growl as soon as you get through the door and the huge variety of cupcakes on offer will make your eyes pop. To save yourself the drama of trying to decide I highly recommend the mini egg cupcakes, take them away and enjoy them on the sofa with a cup of tea - bliss!

Creme Egg Smash at Cake Stories

When I see the Creme Egg Smash out at Cake Stories I know that Easter is well and truly here. These little beauties always appear at this time of year and are the ultimate chocolatey indulgence for Easter. Combining my two favourite things - creme eggs and chocolate cake - they are, no exaggeration, one of the best things about living in Newcastle!

Hot Cross Bun Doughnuts at Proven

The Proven Doughnut obsession continues and they've really created something special this Easter with the arrival of their Hot Cross Bun Doughnut. Spiced dough filled with vanilla custard and orange soaked fruit, I think this may actually be the best doughnut I have ever had! The only problem is it's impossible to just leave with one doughnut and you will end up walking away with a box of 6 .. you have been warned!
