Small Batch Easter Baking – Bake from Scratch
This Classic Hummingbird Cake still features all the delicious elements you know and love, but serves them up in one-layer for those occasions when you need a smaller cake to feed a smaller crowd. Top it off with generous swirls of cream cheese frosting, and you might not even miss that second layer!
2. Carrot Cake Cheesecake Bars
Who needs cream cheese frosting when you’ve got a layer of cheesecake filling? These bars combine two of our favorite cakes in one: crumbly chunks of carrot cake baked into a velvety layer of cheesecake. Fair warning: you may not be able to have one without the other again.
3. Jam and Cream Brioche Tart
In a 1997 episode of Julia Child’s Baking with Julia, Nancy Silverton baked a brioche tart that was so good it made Julia cry. In our take on this groundbreaking dessert, we filled a pillowy brioche “crust” with velvety cream cheese custard and swirled it with fruit preserves. Finished off with crunchy pearl sugar, this stunner might just make you shed a tear, too.
4. Almond Bundt Cake with Coconut Glaze
Simple, elegant, and a touch whimsical, this Almond Bundt Cake with Coconut Glaze was made with Easter in mind. Nordic Ware’s 6 Cup Heritage Bundt Pan lends a mesmerizing swirl to this sour cream pound cake, forming the perfect canvas for our rich Coconut Glaze. Finish the cake off with toasted coconut and candied chocolate eggs to make a centerpiece-worthy Easter egg nest.
5. Milk Chocolate Egg Cookies
A nostalgic ode to Easter candy, this Cadbury egg-studded cookie is all about the texture. Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and with a boost of crunch from the candy-coated chocolate eggs, it’s a new and improved way to indulge in the iconic Easter treat.
