I don’t know if you know this, but Easter is merely days away!? I know. It really snuck up on me this year too. Every year my family goes all out for Easter with a massive brunch spread that leaves everyone in a sugar and carb induced coma (in the best way possible). I always find it so hard to decide what to make for Easter though! Donuts? Coffee Cake? Quiche! It’s overwhelming. And then I remember…oh, yeah, I do this as like…my job. And there are SO MANY goodies on the blog to impress everyone with this Easter. So, we’ve rounded up our favorite Crowd Pleasing Easter Brunch Recipes so you don’t have to do all that searching for the best brunch recipes out there.
Carrot Cake is obviously an Easter Staple, but you know what else is a staple for all occasions? Banana bread. And why choose between banana bread and carrot cake when you can have both? You KNOW I love a good quick bread (like hello) and this Carrot Cake Banana Bread is perfect for Easter.
If you’re looking for a quick, easy, and show stopping dish, this Orange Marmalade French Toast Bake is it. You can prep everything the night before so there’s no rush come Easter Morning and better yet, it serves a crowd. Simply take it out of the fridge, pop it in the oven and voila!
It’s easy to get overloaded on the sweets at brunch, so try mixing in a savory side dish! These Garlic Roasted Fingerling Potatoes tossed with dill, goat cheese, and fresh spring peas are the perfect crunchy complement to all those cakes and sweets.
While there are a few steps to this beautiful spring tart, it’s totally worth it. It looks AND tastes amazing, and is the perfect special something for Easter Brunch.
I love upside down cakes. They’re like the inverse of a normal cake–you do all the work at the beginning and then after it’s done baking instead of having to assemble or carefully frost anything, you flip it over and all the magic happens. This Banana Upside Down Cake is perfect for brunch in all it’s sticky, sweet, caramel goodness. YUM.
Growing up, PopTarts (like the ones in the silver foil) were one of my favorite breakfast treats. Level up with these scrumptious homemade Apricot Almond Pop Tarts. Both kids and the grown ups will be going back for seconds.
If there is a time for donuts, it’s certainly brunch. And while we love a good carrot cake for brunch, eating it in donut form makes it a little more fun, doesn’t it? Plus they’re baked, so to me…that’s a health food?
Guys, guys, guys. This bread is SO DAMN good. Like this moist zucchini bread with a seriously addicting cardamom pistachio crumble will actually be gone in approx. 1 hour. I suggest you make 2 if you’re having a large group over 🙂
I know, I know, cookies aren’t exactly a brunch food but we’re all for eating cake for breakfast here. So cookies at brunch? Sounds good to me. Cut out easter eggs, bunnies, or flowers and sprinkle with some fun pastel sugar. Or make it an activity for the kids (or adults!) to decorate!
Everyone loves a good cinnamon roll. You know what everyone doesn’t love though? How long they take to make. If you’re looking for allllll that cinnamon roll goodness in a fraction of the time, this Cinnamon Roll Sheet Cake with a dreamy cream cheese frosting is just what you need.
