4 Recipes for an Easy Easter Brunch

Tomorrow is Easter, which means family and friends will be hippity-hopping to your home for egg hunts, good laughs, and fresh food. Are you ready? I wasn’t!

I had my entire immediately family heading to my house in just a few hours, and I had no plans for our Easter meal! The clock was running out. I needed several recipes that I could produce quickly, and my dear friends, that’s exactly what I have for you today.

Pumpkin Roll Stand-up Cake

Nothing says fall quite like pumpkin. When late September hits, so does the flood of pumpkin-flavored goodies, and we just can’t get enough!

I was inspired by an image I saw on Pinterest (of course) for a Valentine’s Day chocolate cake roll. I’ve made dozens of pumpkin rolls for the fall, and I’ve had chocolate cake rolls before, but this one definitely stood out. Or should I say, stood up!

Tuna Niçoise Salad Sandwich

Nick-o-eyes. Nee-co-eese. Nye-soys.

When I first came across this recipe, I had no idea how to say it, let alone know how to make it. Tuna Niçoise salad has a hoity-toity reputation, definitely much fancier than its cousin, the plain-old tuna salad.

Apple Bread with Spiked Caramel Sauce

 

In my house, sweet breads are traditionally a breakfast food. We’ll pop a slice of banana bread in the toaster to crisp it up, melt the chocolate chips inside–there’s no better way to start the day.

As far as this recipe goes, well, it’s definitely one way to start the day.

Typically, this boozy take on a caramel apple is best served as a dessert, but if you leave the caramel sauce off and sub out the spiked cider for applesauce, there’s no  reason this bread can’t join the ranks of familiar breakfast breads.

Guinness ‘Cottage Pie’

It’s not always sweet here in the Faust Bakes kitchen, and what better recipe to be the first savory dish on the blog than a Guinness cottage pie?

Now, the reason I put cottage pie in quotes in the title of this post is because, as I learned while researching this recipe, this is only technically a cottage pie, but in no way traditional.

Cranberry Eggnog Bread

Eggnog is always a big holiday favorite in my family, and since I’m always looking for a treat that’ll make a splash, I was all over this!

I originally saw this bread on the Sprinkle Bakes blog, and was absolutely determined to make it exactly as Heather had. It looked so fabulous, why mess with it? The only problem is that I was having no luck finding the fruit cake mix the recipe called for.
