Happy Easter! For many of us, this Easter looks very similar to last year — still in lockdown. Once again, we won’t be celebrating with family, but I still want to do some baking, just not traditional Easter recipes. In years past, I’ve made Italian Easter Bread, Hot Cross Buns, Macarons, and Bunny shaped Cupcakes. Last year, I made Easter Coronavirus Cookies (white chocolate, raisin, cornflakes, and sprinkles), and you can find that recipe in my Easter Recipes Round Up. In this post, I share 5 non-traditional baking recipes for Easter, which you can try if you’re looking for something different to make this holiday!
This Easter I’m making cinnamon rolls, which will provide a much desired euphoric sugar rush.
Are you still making sourdough? I must confess I’m not; my sourdough starter went to live on the farm with the other sourdough starters. It wasn’t that I didn’t enjoy making sourdough, it’s because my stomach didn’t react favorably and I was making myself ill. Nonetheless, if you still have sourdough discard to use up, this carrot cake muffin recipe is delicious, and is a popular recipe on my blog!
I made this cake for mother’s day years ago, and it’s a great option if you’re looking for a straightforward recipe. It’s a big cake, so it would work well if you’re living with a family, or if you just really want to eat a lot of cake. The glaze adds a punch of fragrant vanilla, making this recipe a reliable option for those who prefer classic flavours. The fondant daffodils do take time to make, but are a fun crafting opportunity!
This is such a pretty cake! It has a slight earthy flavour from the beets, but is similar in taste to a carrot cake. I highly recommend if you’re looking for a cake with a bit of a twist.
What’s that, another bunt cake? This is a legitimate 18th Century recipe for a pound cake flavoured with caraway seeds, rosewater, and sherry. Sounds weird, but tastes delicious, so why not try a historical recipe this Easter?
Don’t want to bake anything sweet this Easter because you’re focusing on the chocolate? Try baking cornbread! This buttermilk cornbread, also called Johnny Cake, is fluffy and moist, and is perfect served with chili, or warmed for breakfast.
There you have it, 5 non-traditional baking recipes for Easter! If you try any of these recipes, let me know how they went. 🙂
