5 Easter Cakes as Sweet as Spring
Celebrate Easter with delicious cakes and tartlets featuring rhubarb, carrots and meringue
Easter is just around the corner! And after a long period of
fasting, the holiday offers us the opportunity to spend time with family,
relax, and indulge in good food. Christians celebrate Easter to commemorate the
resurrection of Jesus, while others use the long weekend to welcome the
much-awaited spring season. In any case, you should not miss out on a cake or
two for your Sunday get together.
and festive Easter cakes and desserts, April also welcomes fresh and fruity
ingredients like rhubarb, lemons, and yogurt, which are perfect for Easter
baking. You will taste spring and warm sunshine in every bite!
Spring calls for rhubarb! Rhubarb compote or
jam are great, but nothing beats fresh
and slightly sour rhubarb bits in combination with an almond base and a sweet
meringue topping. This cake is much easier to make than it looks - and almost too
pretty to eat.
Lemon curd is a British all-rounder! Whipped up
in no time, this creamy curd can be used as a delicious spread or cake filling.
With the help of ready-to-bake strudel dough, you can make these little Strudel
cups shine with a fresh citrus touch.
Make way for this classic Easter favorite that everyone
will enjoy! A cake that should be in everyone´s baking repertoire and that is
so melt-in-your-mouth-moist, it will never fail. Welcome spring with loads of carrots and a divine
cream cheese frosting.
The only things prettier than this cake are the
actual flowers blooming outside! True to say that strawberry season is not
right around the corner, but who can resist this fluffy sponge cake, also known
as Angel cake. Whipped cream and any fresh fruits are a winner with this cake.
To make it extra fluffy, make sure to not overdo folding the egg whites into
the egg yolk mixture, otherwise the cake will come out dense and short.
Combine white chocolate and cream cheese to get a
smooth and creamy cheesecake without having to turn on the oven. The only hard
part is waiting for it to set. Your Easter visitors will truly be pleased!
