“Do Easter Bunny’s bleed purple?”

I had so much fun reading through all of your favorite Easter foods. I literally read every single comment drooling over all of the foods listed. Most of you said you love a good savory ham but there were a couple of Easter foods that were new to me like Butter Lamb and ZOPF (a German bread).

For me, my favorite’s definitely gotta be Cadbury eggs. I’ve been eating them since January :)

I was really surprised that the majority of you said you loved:

#1) The Reeses’ Peanut Butter Eggs – and YES, they are so much better than the regular peanut butter cups! Maybe more peanut butter to chocolate ratio?
#2) Deviled Eggs – These came in a close second. I thought I was the only person that popped these like popcorn but apparently a lot of you are fighting over the deviled egg platter at Easter. It’s almost a sure sign that I’m pregnant when I start craving these. I’m craving these now but NO I’m not pregnant. You all just reminded me how good they are.

Many of you said your mom or grandma makes an Easter Bunny cake with coconut. Sounds just like the one I make too. But say your grandma doesn’t make this cake…don’t you think you should start the tradition? It sounds intimidating to make but it really is easy and I am not a cake expert by any means.

Betty Crocker asked me for a Bunny Cake recipe and I told them I had one but I was sure they already had it on their site because it’s a common one that everyone makes. Surprisingly they didn’t.

You can make this Bunny Cake with the Easter colors inside or just plain. It’s really simple, easy, and good. But the best part is the look on your kid’s faces when they see it. Trust me, you should have seen my kid’s faces when I cut into the cake. They said, “Mom…do Easter Bunnies bleed purple?” I’m sure they thought momma was a little off her rocker making a Bunny Cake in mid-February!
I think you have to be a BettyCrocker member to view the
recipe but all you have to do is give them your email address and your a member!

  1. Deviled eggs are the best at Easter since you make them to use up your dyed eggs and they are nice purple, green and blue colors!

    This cake is too cute! My family never had a tradition of having an Easter Bunny cake on Easter but it is a wonderful idea and a tradition I might have to start!

  2. Love the Easter bunny cake! So colorful. My grandma used to make them. So cute!

  5. Love the Easter Bunny Cake! My mom was allergic to coconut, so I’ve never had something like this before. I’m adding it to my list of things to make this year. My kids would be so thrilled about the inside. New to your blog, but looking forward to finding great food on here!

  9. This cake is adorable!! Rainbow cakes make me really happy, I’ved blogged two already! — I’m a huge fan of deviled eggs, too! However, generally my cousin eats almost all of them before I can ever get to my second egg.

  10. I’ve seen this cake many times and always thought it cool looking, but yours looks even better!. I’m afraid I’ll never taste this lovely things as I’m very allgeric to coconut. I’m so allgeric that I know the chemical names for it! you would be suprise where you can find coconut oil :)

      When you try to print it, the diagram shows up but you’re right it looks like it’s not there on the Betty Crocker site. I will email it to you.
