Easter recipes for kids


Easter is around the corner and it’s also one of my favourite holidays for family bonding. Kids usually love the morning egg hunt and the chocolate eggs, but they can also enjoy and have fun getting together in the kitchen to help prepare easy and yummy Easter food the whole family will love to eat. So let’s take the opportunity to get the little chefs helping out in the kitchen with these easy Easter recipes. 

Bunny Buns 

What you need:

  • 600 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 8 grams of active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of warm milk
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 egg

This is how you make it:

  • In a bowl give the yeast and milk a little stir until it dissolves.
  • Then add the egg, the butter, sugar, honey, salt and the flour. Knead the dough with your hands or use your kneader attachment on your mixer.
  • Cover the bowl with a wet cloth and let it rise for about two hours or until double. Divide the dough into several equal sized balls and place the dough onto a greased tray. Cover and let it rise again for another hour.
  • Make the little eyes with a skewer or chopstick, and cut the ears with kitchen shears smoothing the edges around the bunny ears.
  • Bake at 180° for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. 

Tip: Leave some space between the buns as the dough will double volume and you don’t want them to stick together.

Puffed carrots stuffed with egg filling

What you need:

  • Puff pastry dough
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 table spoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 tea spoon of mustard
  • salt and pepper
  • orange food colouring
  • parsley 

This is how you make it:

  • Cut the pastry dough into strips 1-1.5 cm wide. Then roll the strips and wrap each strip spirally around a metal cone, starting from the narrow part.
  • Add an orange food colouring to a beaten egg and coat each cone.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 200 C degrees for about 15 minutes. After they cool completely, take the cone out and they will be ready for the filling.

For the filling:

  • Boil 3 eggs and let them cool down.
  • In a bowl smash the boiled eggs with a fork and add 4 table spoons of mayonnaise, 1 teaspoon of mustard, salt, pepper and chopped parsley. 
  • Mix well and stuff each carrot, and decorate with some parsley or other fresh herbs at the top. 

Tip: In case you don’t have metal cones, you can make cones using aluminium foil. 

Carrot truffles

What you need:

  • 1 carrot
  • 1 can of sweet condensed milk 
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • ½ cup of sugar 
  • fresh leaves for decoration 

This is how you make it:

  • Grate the carrots in a food processor. 
  • In a pot over low heat, melt the butter and add the condensed milk and the carrot, stirring continuously until you can see the bottom of the pot when dragging a spatula through. Wait until you can see the bottom of the pot for 2-3 seconds when dragging a spatula through before removing the pan from the stove.
  • Pour into a plate and let it chill for about an hour.
  • Take a small amount in the hands and roll into carrot shape. Roll the little carrots in a bowl with sugar and decorate the top with small fresh leaves. Mint leaves are my favourite for this recipe.

Easter bunny potatoes

easter food 5 - Happy Go KL

What you need:

  • 4 potatoes
  • 25 g breadcrumbs 
  • 50 g grated cheese
  • 3 table spoons of extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 tea spoon of salt
  • 8 sage leaves for the ears
  • 4 cloves for the eyes 
  • small pieces of raw carrot for the nose

This is how you make it:

  • Hold the potato at one end, and gently slice thick sections the way down into the potato, leaving the base solid.
  • In a bowl mix oil, salt, breadcrumbs and grated cheese. When all of the potatoes are cut, place them cut side up in a baking dish or small roasting pan. Use a pastry brush to spread the mixture evenly over the potatoes and in between the slices of each potato.
  • Pre heat the oven at 200°C and cook the potatoes for about 40 minutes or until golden.
  • When they’re cooled down, decorate the potatoes using the sage leaves to make the bunny ears, the cloves for the eyes and a small piece of carrot for the nose.

Tip: an easy way to check if the potatoes are ready, is to use a thin wooden skewer. If it enters the potato with little resistance, the potatoes are done.

I’m sure the whole family will love these tasty recipes and as they need adult supervision, it gives you the perfect excuse to spend some quality time with the kids. Plus the food will make a beautiful decoration on your Easter brunch table. Hope they will also be an inspiration to make your Easter day fun and charming…
