This carrot cake is extremly rich and moist thanks to one special “secret” ingredient…the wonderfully nutritious and delicious pumpkin!
All of the traditional flavors of this carrot cake pair perfectly with the taste of pumpkin, and it really takes the ‘moistness‘ of this spice cake to a whole new level! The interesting part, however, is that you can’t taste the pumpkin, but it adds a wonderful rich texture.
This bread is traditionally braided and shaped to look like a wreath and bright and beautiful decorated eggs are nestled in the dough. This bread is served on Easter Sunday . The eggs represent life, fertility and rebirth, and the ring shape represents the crown of thorns. The women in my family get together to make this bread every year and we give them out as gifts to neighbors and friends. Please Enjoy!
In my family, it just isn’t Easter without chocolate bunnies and PEEPS® Marshmallow treats! While you can use white or milk chocolate, I found dark chocolate to work best with the very sweet center. You can also dip just the ears or skewer them on a lollipop stick and dunk the whole thing, but I think the bunnies’ shocked expression lends itself nicely to sinking neck-deep in chocolate.
My best friend’s mom makes these every Easter. The first time I spent Easter with their family, I was hesitant to try these, but now Easter’s just not Easter without Mom Stigers’ pickled eggs! If you’ve never had pickled eggs, try these—you’ll love them! There’s just something so surprising and wonderful about cutting one of these in half and seeing the dark purple outside fading to a white ring around the yellow yolk.
