My Favorite Easter Recipe of All: Pound Cake Easter Eggs

That’s a bold statement, right?

How cute are these Pound Cake Easter Eggs? The good news is that they only require a few ingredients and not a lot of time. It's my favorite #Easter #Recipe

This is the one I’m most excited about, which is why I’m posting it several days before Easter so that if you want or NEED to make it, I’m all yours. What do I love about it, other than everything? My favorite thing about it is that it reminds me of the Little Debbie snack cakes of my youth. I see them at the store now and I always am tempted to buy them, but then I see that they have 4,000 ingredients and I pull my hand back. I say, “No, Tamara. Don’t go down that road. It would be like when you were pregnant and you hadn’t had fast food in ten years and you were craving Burger King fries and you called your mom to talk you out of it.” And she did, and it was fine, but I bought them and sat in the parking lot and ate one. They were terrible!

I’m so glad I know that. I’m so glad that this recipe is NOT terrible and won’t wind up in a dumpster like the fries:

Easter Recipe

Please tell me they remind you of the snack cakes you buy at stores. They taste so much better, though! The “icing” is made from pure melting chocolate, and you can use any color you want. White chocolate! What’s not to love? Taste, consistency, adorability factor = why this is my favorite Easter recipe. It’s so easy. Wow your kids. Wow your adults. Speaking of wowing your kids, how are you all doing on Easter shopping? I’m proud to say I’m done. No more picking through the stormy remnants of the aisles of Target and Walmart, after the last minute shoppers are done with it. My kids are getting a few quality items.

And I had a relaxing time picking things out with Cassidy.

Easter Recipe

Also, we had our annual Passover Seder last night, and it gets more meaningful every year, as the kids grow, and can better understanding the story and the meaning. Cassidy explains it so well, and the kids are gripped by it! Scarlet was obsessed with onion-less latkes (yes, we have them on Passover too apparently) and Des was obsessed obsessed obsessed with green beans. You just never know, huh? I would LOVE to share Passover recipes the way I do with Easter, but it’s more about writing what you know. Right now? I know Easter cakes pretty well. With time, I hope to share Cassidy’s delicious family Passover recipes.

Only the ones not sworn to secrecy in the vault, of course. That said, here’s a non-secret recipe:

My Favorite Easter Recipe of All: Pound Cake Easter Eggs — 15 Comments

  1. I love pound cake so Easter Egg Pound cake makes my mouth water. The fact that they are personal size is dangerous for me. I know I will have to eat more than one. I love that your kids are so excited about Passover. My parents made us go to church a couple of times a week when I was growing up. As much as I hated it I love it now and plan on doing the same to my kids.

  2. Oh, my goodness… these are so cute! I don’t think I’ve ever had a Little Debbie cake before (or Burger King fries, come to think of it). I feel like I’ve been missing out! I’m glad you’re all done with the Easter shopping; I heard it’s been reaching Christmas levels of epic craziness in recent years, so be glad you’re not frantically pacing the aisles at Target and buying things you don’t need but want anyway, since that’s what I always do 🙂

    Hope you and your family had a very happy Passover and that you have a happy Easter! XOXO

  3. Love this quick and easy idea for Easter – think I am going to pick up a pound cake and do this! I totally thought they were Little Debbie Cakes when I saw the photo!
