Happy weekend!

This is the first year I’m hosting Easter. At age 31, I feel I should have done this by now? But it’s always been a family holiday at my parents’ or in-law’s. With our home finally coming together after nearly a year, I figure it’s the best time to gather together and celebrate with a big Easter meal.

The menu isn’t 100% decided yet, but there will be ham. I’m thinking brown sugar glazed, yum! A potato side dish of sorts, asparagus side dish– or maybe from-scratch green bean casserole, which is Kevin’s favorite (is that Easter-y?), homemade biscuits, and a bright colorful salad. Dessert will be pineapple upside down cake and an Easter nest cake, for which I’ll use this carrot cake recipe as the bundt cake. Oh, and deviled eggs for sure! Breakfast is undecided, but I’m leaning towards classic easy cinnamon rolls.

I’ve been brainstorming and gathering several Easter recipes together this week, so I figured I’d simply share them with you too. There’s everything from egg dishes for breakfast or brunch, cinnamon rolls + scones, desserts, homemade candy, supper, and side dishes. This list should cover everything we need!

  1. That Easter Nest Cake is amazing! And I’m so up for trying that Fruit Pizza – I saw the video for it the other day on Instagram. It looks so easy to make 🙂

    How about my Creme Egg Cheesecake? It would make the perfect showstopper dessert for an Easter feast – ://whatcharlottebaked.com/2017/03/25/creme-egg-cheesecake-no-bake/

    Although, Pineapple Upside Down cake is always a great idea too!

  2. Wow, what a compilation! I am sure everybody has the chance to find the perfect combination.

    I have gotten into meringue recently. I piped some nests made of meringue and filled them with Easter chocolate eggs. An alternative would be strawberries and cream, see here: https://jennyisbaking.com/2017/04/05/quick-easter-nests/
    Another idea is to make to meringue circles and then put some of your delicious lemon curd in between.
    In Germany eggnogg (well similar) is common for Easter. I was thinking of trying this eggnogg layer cake recipe: http://baketotheroots.de/kleine-eierlikortorte/ (it’s in English)

  3. I always wish we had family nearby so I could host a big holiday dinner or brunch.  But my sister will be visiting so it will be her, my husband, and I to cook for.  My mom always made cheesy potatoes on easter which I loved.  I also had my first piece of king cake a few years ago, that was amazing!  

  4. Thanks for the amazing compilation!  I can’t wait to find something fun to make for Easter!  Thank you for posting!

  5. So, so, so yum! I can’t wait to try out some of these recipes! Especially saltine toffee, Easter bunny bark and the nest cakes! 😀

  6. I actually made my second batch of your easy from scratch cinnamon rolls today, trying to get better with yeast. I think this is way off topic but I just wanted to tell you! Not hosting Easter but I have a feeling more people will want me to make these for any gatherings in future. They truly are easy and they’re the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had!! Now back to perusing this list. It’s making my stomach growl!!

    1. glad you’re getting comfy with yeast! I absolutely swear by those easy cinnamon rolls. My favorite and very approachable if you’re new with yeast!

  7. Holy moly – I am not hosting Easter but I could certainly agree to share some of these with my peeps. What a fantastic list! Thank you Sally. It will be nice to show off your new house, won’t it?!
