Spring has sprung! Though it may not feel like spring in the northeast quite yet, Easter is just around the corner. Growing up, Easter was always one of my favorite holidays because it packed so many things I loved into one day... baking, brunch, pastels, creative egg-dying, warm weather (in theory), family time, and of course, all the Easter bunny's treats.
Well, it turns out that things don't change all that much as you grow up. I still love Easter for all of the same reasons and this year, I'm psyched to share an amazing Easter treat recipe that will put the perfect sweet finishing touch on your holiday meal.
This perfectly moist and fabulously flavorful traditional carrot cake recipe comes straight from the cupcake experts themselves: Katherine Kallinis and Sophie Kallinis LaMontagne, the Georgetown Cupcake sisters! And in an amazing turn of social media events, Katherine and Sophie tweeted their approval of my version of their recipe in response to a photo I posted on Instagram (see below)! If that's not reason enough for you to give these a try for your Easter get together, I don't know what is!
The tender cupcakes are packed with freshly grated carrot and tart apple. Topped with a cloud of thick, vanilla cream cheese frosting and a sprinkle of your favorite springtime sprinkles, these treats are sure to give the Easter bunny a run for his money! ;) Enjoy!
