As a child, my father would cast himself in the role as Easter bunny. At my house, this event called for an elaborate scavenger hunt for 3 special gifts. My 2 siblings and myself each embarked on our own unique investigation on Easter morning. My dad would read the first riddle. Then we’d have to solve it. Where did he hide our first surprise? In the laundry room? Under the bathroom sink? Inside my mom’s car? It was always exhilarating to find out. You may not be a master wordsmith like my dad. Not many of us are. But you can still give your friends and family an eventful Easter. How? Simply by pleasuring their taste buds with these 3 monkey bread recipes fit for an Easter celebration!
1. Orange Rolls
Oh My! Sugar High created a delicious, quick, and easy roll recipe that would generate ear-to-ear grins at your kitchen table this Easter morning. Her orange rolls require only 5 ingredients and take about 10 minutes to prepare. Combine the liquid ingredients, dip the dough balls in the mixture, and pop in the oven for about 26-32 minutes. Easter signifies the start of a new season. Greet your loved ones with this zesty and refreshing orange-flavored dish this year.
2. Mimosa Monkey Bread
Are you spending your Easter with the girls? Or just looking for a new monkey bread recipe to share with your wife or husband? Try this Mimosa Monkey Bread from Barefoot Wine & Bubbly. This concoction will also have a tinge of orange taste to it, similar to the orange rolls. If you bake this recipe, you’ll have the opportunity to dump the biscuit dough into Prosecco. Unwind this Easter day with a sweet slice of Mimosa Monkey Bread.
3. Easter Egg Monkey Bread
Of the featured recipes, this is by far my favorite. Probably because I am partial to chocolate, especially in the form of Cadbury Eggs. I can’t make it through one Easter season without eating the little chocolate-filled eggs. Trust me, I’ve tried. That’s why when I came across this Easter Egg Monkey Bread recipe from Pillsbury, I just had to tell the world about it. The recipe is great for kids, as the treat is transformed into a mini culinary scavenger hunt. When producing this recipe, the monkey bread baker will alternate placing a brown sugar and cream cheese mixture or a Cadbury Egg into a flattened piece of Pillsbury dough. Those who consume your creation will enjoy each bite – a surprise in their mouth!
