Easter Appetizers

Easter Desserts

This is seriously one yummy dessert! Kids will have fun trying to get to the hidden egg inside each cupcake.

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.

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.

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.

Hot cross buns are traditionally served on Good Friday and are extremely popular in the UK. 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.

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.

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.

Key lime pie with condensed milk and whipped cream, a gorgeous dessert with a silky filling and a crumbly biscuit crust. Serve it chilled from the fridge, and you’ve got the ultimate treat for a lovely warm day.

Romanian Easter Cake or Pasca is a traditional dessert eaten on Easter Day. There are many variations recipes for Pasca across the country, with different regions having their own traditional Easter Cake. This recipe, however, is really easy to make and very tasty.
