Easter Baking Ideas for a Hoppy Holiday

Celebrate spring with tasty treats even the Easter bunny will want a bite of.

In America, Easter afternoons are spent hunting around the yard for sweet surprises left by Peter Cottontail.

Elsewhere, like Bermuda, Northwestern Europe, and France, the holiday is celebrated by flying a kite, lighting a bonfire, and making an omelet respectively. 

But one thing many cultures have in common when it comes to Easter is celebrating with a sweet treat, whether it’s candy, chocolate, or cake.

So don’t stress about what to bring to Easter lunch or dinner—we’ve got you covered.

There are tons of Easter baking ideas out there for those who want to keep it classic or try something.

What Are Some Popular Easter Desserts?

Depending on who you ask, different people may have different opinions on what a classic Easter dessert is.

One person might say cake, another might say cookies.

That said, there are some desserts that generally tend to show up on Easter tables across the board:

  • Carrot cake or cupcakes
  • Sugar cookies
  • Lemon cake or pie
  • Chocolate-covered marshmallows
  • Bread pudding
  • Fruit cobbler
  • Banana pudding 
  • Strawberry shortcake

So what should you bring to your Easter gathering or bake at home to celebrate?

The good news is, there’s no right or wrong answer.

Let’s look at some options, from traditional treats to non-traditional ones.
