I know I know. I’m calling it a Gluten-Free Easter Menu, but there’s no ham! I figure you already have your own recipe for ham, your own favorite way to make it. But … what about gluten-free Hot Cross Buns? Gluten-free licorice for the gluten-free Easter basket? See where I’m going with this?
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know the drill with the clickable collage, but just in case—hover over each photo for the recipe title, then click the picture to open a new window with that post and the entire recipe:
And while we’re at it, here’s the 10¢ tour of your Gluten-Free Easter menu (remember – the links are all above):
1. Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Cupcakes: Easter bunnies eat carrots.
2. Gluten-Free Lemon Sugar Cookies in Easter shapes: lemon is in season, the shapes speak for themselves.
3. Gluten-Free Red Cherry Licorice: Licorice seems like it should be naturally gluten-free, but, sadly, it usually isn’t. No worries. Make your own for that Easter basket, and instead of red, make it … pink!
4. Gluten-Free Popovers from Gluten-Free on a Shoestring, the Cookbook: The easiest & most impressive way to get some gluten-free bread on the table, whether your Easter meal is lunch, brunch or dinner.
5. Gluten-Free Hot Cross Buns: Traditional for Easter, and I know you’ve been missing them now that you’re gluten-free.
6. Gluten-Free Potato Pierogi: Traditional at Easter for some, they always remind me of this time of year. And they’re just plain deeeelicious.
7. Gluten-Free Carrot Cake Whoopie Pies: A fun spin on #1 above. Easter = bunnies = carrots = carrot cake…
8. Gluten-Free Strawberry Shortcakes: Easter comes at the veeeery beginning of the strawberry season. It may not be in full swing yet, but if we start now, we might just usher in more Spring weather. And these shortcakes are special, since the cakes themselves are strawberry-flavored—naturally.
9. Gluten-Free Frosted Coconut Cupcakes: Finally, these easy-to-frost coconut cupcakes never fail to impress, and if you load them up with toasted coconut chips and put a few chocolate eggs on top, they’re bird nests! Get it?
Whatever your plans, from my family to yours, I hope you have a fun yet relaxing gluten-free holiday weekend & a Happy Easter to those who celebrate!
