Dessert Ideas for Easter Brunch

By Eric Olesen - 3rd generation owner

For us, Easter is that renewal that we look forward to.  It’s no secret that Wisconsin winters can be long, cold and somewhat dark.  Many times Easter arrives and it’s exactly the spark that we need to gather together and see family and friends.  And since every holiday meal needs a showstopping treat to top it off, we’ve done all the hard work this Easter.  If you’re planning a traditional Easter brunch, we have a range of tempting Easter breakfast pastries or Easter desserts to choose from that you and your family and guests will love.  From Kringle to layer cakes to petit fours, these Easter brunch sweets are perfect any time of day.

1.  Easter Kringle

If you’re looking for dessert ideas for Easter brunch, you can’t do much better than our Easter Kringle.  This unique dessert is made with our traditional flaky pastry stuffed with our Grandma’s Famous Carrot Cake and topped with smooth cream cheese filling.  We sprinkle the whole thing with pastel-colored sugar for a festive and sweet look that you won’t be able to resist.  It looks great as a centerpiece for your Easter brunch and it tastes just as good!

2.  Easter Layer Cake

Easter Bunny Layer Cake For us, Easter isn’t Easter without cake.  One of the best Easter brunch desserts we can think of is our lovely Easter Layer Cake.  We start with layers of our moist white cake and add pretty pink, green and yellow buttercream frosting in between.  The entire cake is then frosted and decorated in a fun Easter theme for everyone at your table to enjoy.  Your guests will ooh and ahh over how beautiful and spring-like this cake is as you cut each tempting slice.

3.  Easter Basket Crown Cake

Nothing says “Easter” like our adorable Easter Basket Crown Cake.  We take our Grandma’s Famous Carrot Cake, a moist, densely-packed delight, and frost it with delicious cream cheese icing before garnishing the whole thing with chocolate Easter eggs and festive sprinkles.  This cake is truly one of our favorite Easter brunch sweets.

4.  Petit Four Eggs

How about a sweet Easter egg hunt?  Our sweet egg-shaped petit fours are moist white cake hand-dipped in white icing, then drizzled delicately with more icing in the colors of spring.  These mini cakes are perfect for many different occasions, from weddings to baby showers to teatime.  Try them paired with our Easter Kringle for a perfect dessert package that’s right at home on any Easter table.

5.  Carrot Cake Brownies

Carrot Cake Brownies for Easter No list of dessert ideas for Easter brunch would be complete without our irresistible Carrot Cake Brownies.  Carrot cake and cream cheese are perfect partners in this sweet delight.  We make up eight large brownies using our signature carrot cake recipe and finish them off with our famous cream cheese frosting.  Finally, we hand decorate each one with a cute carrot guaranteed to make your guests smile.

6.  Mediterranean Apricot Kringle

Our Apricot Kringle tastes so light and sweet, you’ll wish it was available year-round.  We use deliciously tart and bright Mediterranean apricots grown in central Turkey to sweet, juicy perfection.  Layers of flaky pastry wrap around the delicious apricot filling, and then topped with smooth white icing.  It’s no wonder this is one of our most popular flavors when it comes around in the spring.

7.  Easter Braided Colored Bread

Braided Easter Bread Not all sweets have to be traditional pastries!  Our Easter Braided Colored Bread may not be sweet to start with, but when you serve it warm and top it with jam or other sweet toppings, it’s the perfect addition to your Easter brunch.  Or, slice it and use it for sandwiches for a casual get-together — the festive spring colors speak for themselves.  One super tip:  use this as french toast for a fun and tasty way to celebrate Easter brunch!
