What is the one thing that should not be missing on your Easter table? Right, Easter eggs and Easter bunnies, of course! Many people have them made out of chocolate – the range of products you can get in supermarkets is almost endless here ;) I am perhaps a bit old-fashioned, but I actually like to bake my Easter bunnies and Easter eggs. Simple and Fluffy Easter Bunnies (with Quark-Oil-Dough) like these here are ready in no time and extremely delicious. No need to get the chocolate ones from the store ;P
Yeast bakes are always welcome in our family when it comes to breakfast. For as long as I can remember, we’ve had delicious sweet braided loaves for breakfast (not only) at Easter. My mom rarely made them herself though – she preferred getting them from the bakery close by. My brother, on the other hand, liked to get into the kitchen and baking them from time to time. At some point, as a teenager, I also started to work with yeast… and I still like to do it today ;) I think there is nothing better than a freshly baked Spelt Sweet Braided Loaf with a little butter on top. Simply terrific!
Easter without a cake is like a birthday without a celebration. You could do both, but I guess it would be strange for some people ;) Luckily, I got the perfect cake for Easter: a delicious German Hazelnut Eierlikör (Advocaat) Layer Cake. If you are a fan of advocaat this might be the perfect cake for you. I know not everyone likes this type of booze – some consider it to be a »grandma« liquor… but I kind of like it. At least for baking ;P
Easter means work. A lot of baking is happening. Every year. Braided loaves, bread, bread rolls, cakes, or pies… the list of things you can do is long ;) If you want to invest as little time as possible but still want something nice and sweet for Easter – make cookies! Chunky Easter Egg Chocolate Chip Cookies like these here are super easy to prepare and look great, in my opinion. They are a bit chunkier (absolutely intended) compared to other cookies – this means they are a great substitute for a slice of cake ;P Well, almost…
Easter is the time for yeast bakes. Easter would be impossible without a Sweet Braided Loaf or a Classic German Easter Bread like this one here. At least in our family. Those bakes are necessary for Easter like Christmas cookies are for Christmas ;) Our Easter breakfast/brunch would not be perfect without it. To make things easier you can prepare the dough in advance and bake the braided loaf or bread the next morning. Preparing the dough does not take long – it needs quite some time to rise… that’s all. Same for all yeast bakes ;P
If you always wanted to command an army of little Easter Bunnies – this is your chance to live your fantasy ;P I made a bunch of sweet little Easter Bunny Cookies with sugar icing and chocolate candy (asses). They are super easy to prepare and are a great option if you want to bake with kids. They can easily work with the dough and decorate the bunnies with the icing. And I assume they will also love to bite their ears and heads off ;P
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
