Easter Recipes

 

If you are trying to think of some different dishes to fix this Easter, here are a few that you might like.  Some are more ambitious than others to make, but worth the effort.  The Italian Easter Breads are very easy to make and delicious - they are a sweet bread.  The Pesto Eggs are super easy and the Edible Easter Egg Nests are something different that will get the attention of everyone at the table.  They make cute little place setting decorations.  The Italian Easter Pie is definitely a labor of love, if you want to try your hand at it.  Buona Pasqua!

Angel Food Cake with White Whipped Frosting

 

Doesn't this cake look like Spring and/or Easter?   I even thought some Peeps on the top and sides might be cute. I put a little tiny jar in the middle of the cake where the hole is, filled it with water and put in some little rosebuds.  I wish I had some spring flowers to put in the cake but it's just too early here in Michigan.

Thomas Keller's Pineapple Upside Down Cake

 

I'm a big admirer of Thomas Keller and everything that he has created.  He is so innovative and amazing so I think it's funny that one of his favorite desserts is a good old fashioned pineapple upside down cake.  Of course, his version uses a fresh pineapple and dark rum but it's still a great classic dessert.  You can also use almost any other kind of fruit in this recipe instead of pineapple.

The recipe starts out with making what he calls a "pan schmear" - a combination of brown sugar and butter with other flavorings - that is spread on the bottom of the pan.  The recipe will make more than you need, but it's difficult to make a small amount.  So you can either use it within a couple of weeks, freeze it for a later time or make two desserts.  In my version I used a little more than he called for and froze the rest.
