15 must-try Easter recipes: appetizers, main courses and desserts

Easter appetizers
  1. Naturally-dyed Easter eggs

Painting eggs for Easter is a tradition in Romania, we just cannot imagine Easter Sunday without these lovely (usually) red eggs on the table. No need to buy egg paint though, you can easily do it at home using red onion skins.

8. Carrot cake with walnuts and cream cheese icing

Carrot cake with walnuts and a scrumptious vanilla cream cheese icing, a family-favourite dessert not only for Easter, but also all year round. It is beautifully moist, with a dense texture and a magnificent blend of spices that works very well with the sweetness of the cream cheese icing.

9.  Chocolate rice krispie Easter egg nests

Chocolate rice krispie Easter egg nests, the sweetest Easter treat for kids. What a fun way of using up chocolate Easter eggs, and keeping everyone entertained. Only 5 ingredients needed, just try not to eat too many chocolate eggs at once, as the Easter menu can be rather generous.

10. Classic lemon drizzle cake

Classic lemon drizzle cake, one of the most loved cake recipes. And most probably the easiest one to whip up. It might not look as posh as other luscious cream cakes, but the flavour is definitely the winner here. Tangy, yet sweet, moist and gorgeously golden, this cake is pure heaven.

11. Easter hot cross buns

Hot cross buns are traditionally served on Good Friday and are extremely popular in the UK, nowadays being available in supermarkets all year around. Sweet, lightly spiced and containing either currants, raisins or sultanas, they can be easily recognised by the cross on top, which symbolises the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. A must-have Easter dessert!!

12. Meringue nests with lemon curd

Meringue nests with lemon curd, a fantastic treat for your Easter dessert menu. Nothing beats a homemade lemon curd and some scrumptious meringue nests that are crunchy on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside.

13. Mini lemon cheesecakes with Easter eggs

My mini lemon cheesecakes with Easter eggs are the best dessert for Easter. The bite-size treat has such a mixed range of textures and  tastes. The base is crunchy, yet crumbly at the same time, while the cream cheese filling is rich, soft and sweet, and the lemon curd brings sharpness and freshness. And then you have the chocolaty mini eggs. Can it get any better than this?
