I got this recipe from my mom, but I don't know where she got it from. These are really good and simple. Don't let the amount of flour scare you. It can be sifted and reused, as it's just used in this recipe to form the egg mold.
I hunted through a dozen pages of recipes to make sure this was not duplicating, couldn't find one like it. This is an incredible cake--light, creamy-like custard, flavoured lightly with vanilla, all in one. The perfect Easter pastiera, originally from Martha Stewart Living.
Ok.. I am sorta famous for making this for BBQ's, Church Potlucks and other gatherings.. And I would LOVE to claim it as my own.. But I actually got this one from my Auntie Nan a couple years back.. I am so glad I did, because everyone ALWAYS raves about this wonderfully EASY recipe.. Hope you enjoy.. :) You can EASILY double this recipe if need be.. (the picture (strawberry w/ blueberry cross) that I have posted is a doubled version on a cookie sheet, instead of a pizza pan) Cooking Time may vary.. But the result won't... :P
These are adorable and make a cute centerpiece for an Easter table. Instead of baking the cupcakes in paper liners, these are baked in the waffle bowls used for ice cream. The cupcakes can be stored for up to 1 day at room temperature. After a day, the cupcakes will begin to pull away from the sides of the waffle bowls. Times are approximate. Cooking time includes allowing the cakes to cool for 30 minutes before frosting.
These cookies are called several names but our family always called them Easter Cookies, because that's when my Grandmother made them, and the name stuck. Prep time also includes forming the dough into desired shapes. Amount of cookies will vary depending on their size.
This is my favorite coconut cake recipe. What makes it so delicious and unusual is the frosting. It is made in a very different manner and isn't ultra-sweet. Just yummy. I think this recipe appeared in the Columbus Dispatch when they posted award-winning recipes from the Ohio State Fair. I can see why it could have walked away with a blue ribbon.
Grandma Rose was from Calabria Italy. We always had this at Easter time. Great for toast and really good for French Toast. Just eat with a dab fresh butter and a cup of coffee. If you braid it, you can put sugar cubes on top that will burst in the oven in those areas, That is how the Italian bakeries do the tops. Ours is plain....
Easter just doesn't get any better than this! These eggs are FABULOUS... If you need a chocolate fix these are good anytime!Great project to make with the kids. Be prepared to make an afternoon of it! Please try my other recipes for Easter Eggs too! Recipe #220417 and Recipe #220316.
Just my take on a favorite recipe!! There are so many out there but this is the way I like to make them!! When I made this today I yielded 6 large muffin tins, 6 small, and two left over "hand formed" nests. ;) Total of 14 assorted sizes - depends on your pans what you will yield. Cook time is chill time.
I've been making this cake since 1972. In fact I made it for my youngest sister when she about 5, she's 40 this year! I dug the recipe out this year and made it for our grandchildren, hubby ate most of it though. You can always just use a cake mix and frosting to save time.
I get really frustrated with Jello that doesn't set-up. I have made these "fool-proof" jigglers a million times for my kids. It's the only recipe I've used that's firm enough to cut out with cutters. Very easy for kids to make, too.
This was a recipe of my grandmother and maybe her mothers. My grandmother was born in 1869. These eggs were always a favorite in our easter baskets,as well as those of my children. If you ask, someone in produce will be happy to provide you with the onion skins.
These are very cute and very tasty little dinner rolls. They are sweeter than normal ones because of the honey, but make a good companion to food none the less. Perfect for Easter because of their cute bunny shapes! Just make sure that you plan ahead to make these because it takes times for them to rise and to shape them. i think they taste better warm and are more of a dense sweet bread good with coffee or tea
This can be made into a roll. It's filled with raisins Chocolate chips and cinnamon and sugar! A little secret remember you are in control of the dough. If any problems do zaar mail me and I'll walk you through. I came up with this because I had extra dough from making poppy seed rolls. Using what decorations I had on hand. The M&m's run so place them on after baking using icing to adhear.
Did you know that you probably have everything you need to dye Easter eggs naturally, right there in your kitchen cupboard? Vegetables such as red cabbage, onion skins, and coffee can be used to color plain white eggs and turn them into beautifully muted, soft pastel colors - Easter treasures! Kids really enjoy figuring out what color different materials will produce -- pretty much the same way our foremothers did when they were experimenting with homegrowns! *Vinegar acts as a dye mordant or dye set. Vinegar works best with spices such as turmeric or beans such as coffee. You do not need to add vinegar to dyes made with berries or herbs. It may morph your color to grey or brown.
