While the Easter Bunny may have a basket full of candy, the Easter holiday can spark some creativity. Libby’s Vegetables offers carrot cake recipes that take traditional flavors and present them in a new way. Ready to serve up new treats for the holidays?
At Easter, carrots are often on the table. While the bunny may love nibbling on those raw carrots, the reality is that a holiday celebration is more than a plate of raw vegetables. Whether it’s a side dish, entrée, or dessert, there are plenty of ways to put those carrots into the mix.
Recently, Libby’s Vegetables shared some tasty ideas that transform the flavors of carrot cake in a new way. While the carrot takes center stage, the marriage of flavors presents the taste in a new way. Combine this with a creative presentation, everyone will applaud to see carrots on the table.
With Easter brunch being a popular holiday choice, a recipe that will delight everyone is Easy Carrot Cake Waffles with whipped cream topping. While some people may like a traditional Belgian waffle, this Carrot Cake Waffle takes all the classic flavor but serves it up in a different way. When serving these Carrot Cake Waffles, consider some toasted nuts to enhance the texture.
For another treat that pairs perfectly with this latte, consider making some Carrot Cake Biscotti This crunchy texture is the perfect vehicle for the carrot flavors. Also, think about pairing drinks to bring out the flavors. A Cinnamon Dolce or even a Chai would be a nice addition to this treat.
Finally, dessert shouldn’t be served with that pesky guilt. With a little thought, this sweet treat might have mom telling you to have a second serving.
Take into account Southern candied carrots with ginger crisp. After the Easter basket has been plundered of its candy, this dessert satisfies both the sweet and the crunchy. Even though people may seem slightly puzzled by the item on the dessert table, that first bite will have them coming back for more.
