Sweet or Savory Easter baking recipes
Easter is a few days away. And with it spring is coming as well. A time for lighter dishes, for a lot of green stuff in your food, for fresh seasonal ingredients like rhubarb, asparagus or strawberries.
But before we get there, we still have to get over the Easter festivities. Lots of food again: appetizers, soups, lamb, stews, lots and lots of different dishes, many of them traditional food cooked only for Easter.
I grew up with my grandmother, she used to cook a lot every Easter, even if she was cooking only for the two of us. She was a great cook and she would always cook the most traditional food on Easter or Christmas, but except the cozonac – the Romanian sweet bread filled with walnuts – she never actually baked anything.
Either for Easter or Christmas or any other celebration…
But I love baking, so I thought about creating a list containing some of my favorite Easter baking recipes. Sweet or savory, I bake at least 2 or 3 of these recipes every Easter. My family loves them all, I hope you will find something you like as well.
Cozonac – a delicious sweet bread filled with a walnuts, the most traditional Romanian Easter cake.
Pasca – another traditional Romanian Easter baking recipe, a creamy cheesecake with raisins.
This is the best carrot cake ever ever ever. Super moist and tender loaf cake with carrots and coconut, topped with a lemon glaze, it really cannot get any better!
Another moist carrot cake, this time made with almonds and filled with a fruity and delicious orange juice and whipped cream filling, the perfect Easter cake.
And if you don't want to make cake, here are some easy carrot cookies with cinnamon and all spice, topped with orange icing and walnuts.
This is my favorite baked cheesecake recipe. A crustless cheesecake, which can be put together in about 15 minutes. A delight to eat!
Another favorite cheesecake, this time an unbaked cheesecake. A soft sponge with the most amazing yogurt and cream cheese filling and topped with fresh strawberries.
