I’ve been getting a lot of requests from you all this week to share my favorite Easter recipes! To be honest, Easter is sometimes a holiday I don’t put a lot of thought into recipe-wise. I’ve only made a handful of Easter hams, as most of my family members are not huge fans. That being said, mom has always loved this oldie-but-goodie ham recipe from way back in 2014. Of course, I have plenty of other colorful spring recipes that are equally perfect for the Easter table!! 

So I thought I’d take some time today to gather them all in one place. I’d love to hear what recipes you plan to make this year! 

Oh, and be sure to check back this week for a few more Easter recipes. Along with an easy (and cheesy) dinner, plus a last-minute cocktail!

  1. Hi Tiegan! What happened to the Carrot Cake Sheet Cake recipe? I was planning on making it this weekend for Easter but can’t find it anywhere on the site anymore. Thanks for your help!

      1. Hi, I, too, am wanting to make the carrot sheet cake recipe for Easter. I had that recipe “saved” in my email inbox but when I click to open it, the page is “no longer found”. Please resend.
        Thank you . Have a Happy Easter!

      1. 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
        1/2 cup brown sugar
        2 large eggs
        2 teaspoons vanilla extract
        11/3 cups grated carrot
        11 4 cups all-purpose flour
        1 teaspoon baking soda
        1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
        1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
        1/2 cup shredded coconut (optional) (optional)
        1 stick salted butter, at room temperature
        1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
        1/4 cup heavy cream
        3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
        11/2 – 2 cups powdered sugar
        2 teaspoons vanilla extract

        Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a 9 inch square
        baking pan with parchment paper.
        2. To make the carrot cake: In a mixing bowl, beat
        together the coconut oil, brown sugar, eggs, and
        vanilla until combined. Mix in the carrots. Add the
        flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, beating
        until just combined. Stir in the coconut, if using.
        3. Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan.
        Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until center is just set.
        Remove and let cool for at least 30 minutes before
        frosting.
        4. To make the frosting: Melt together the butter,
        brown sugar, and heavy cream in a medium
        saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes or
        until the sugar has dissolved. Add a pinch of salt.
        Remove from the heat and add to the bowl of a
        stand mixer. Let cool completely, then add the
        cream cheese and beat until creamy. Sift in the
        powdered sugar, then add the vanilla. Beat until
        well combined. The frosting should be creamy, if it
        feels too runny, add powdered sugar to thicken it
        or stick it in the fridge to firm up.
        5. Spread the frosting over the cake. Slice and enjoy!
