An Easter brunch has the charm of a cozy get-together for friends and family; combined with a good meal. Pastries, salads, warm dishes, sweet or savory, coffee, tea and wine – there is something for everyone. Many regional recipes are suitable for Easter, even if they are not really Easter specialties. So here are a few suggestions. How about “Falschem Hasen” in a lamb shape, Lübeck swallow’s nests, quixotic baked Easter bunnies, an Aachen Easter bread with candied lemon peel or a Poschweck?
The Easter brunch is not exactly typically German. Maybe that’s why there is no German equivalent for it. But it’s getting more and more popular. Brunch (from English) is a combination of breakfast and lunch.
The traditional Easter meal (Easter is a Christian holiday) on Easter Sunday consists of consecrated dishes and Easter biscuits for breakfast and, for example, an Easter lamb for lunch.
And here are some suggestions with old traditional recipes from different regions in Germany.
15 recipes for Easter brunch
1. FALSE HARE AS EASTER LAMB
If you don’t want the Easter bunny on the Easter table, you can use the traditional “Falscher Hase” meatloaf. In the classic lamb baking pan, it goes very well with Easter meals.
2. RAISIN PLACE, RAISIN BREAD
A freshly baked sweet raisin bread really only needs butter. Here is the recipe for a yeast dough without egg. In the Rhineland, Platz is the name for a yeast pastry made from wheat flour.
3. THURSDAY SOUP
Maundy Thursday without meat. But with the first fresh and healthy spring herbs. The soup can be prepared by anyone very easily. For magic: it must always be 9 herbs. Herb suggestions.
4. BLIND PIGEONS
This makes the pre-Easter abstinence from meat bearable. Buns or rolls are soaked in sweet milk, filled with favorite jam and baked in the oven. Something simple.
5. PROBSTEI EASTER PUDDING
A specialty from the Probstei region of northern Germany: homemade almond pudding is filled in blown-out eggshells. It is accompanied by an aromatic fruit sauce.
6. CARROT PUDDING
Classically, in the past, a lot was prepared in a water bath – a pudding. It has nothing to do with the well-known ready-made puddings. We have here a very fine old recipe with herbs.
7. SWEET MINI CREAM PUFFSS
Small, sweet bites are allowed at Easter. Homemade cream puffs can be filled as desired, for example with a raspberry cream, caramel cream or a simple chocolate mixture.
8. EASTER BREADS FOR CHILDREN
Small decorated Easter breads for children are a variation of the classics at brunches and parties. As a savory alternative, it lessens the excess of sweet Easter surprises.
10. COLORFUL EASTER BUNNIES
Instead of powdered sugar and traditional color decorations, you can simply serve up baked Easter bunnies in a pop-art design. Thanks to the finished colored glaze, this is also very easy to implement.
11. SAVORY MINI CREAM PUFFSS
These mini cream puffs are ideal as snacks on the buffet for brunch and parties. There are no limits to the idea for fillings. Anchovy butter, spicy tomato filling & herbal cream cheese
12. AACHEN EASTER BREAD POSCHWECK
The Aachen Easter bread Poschweck contains lemon peel, orange peel and sugar cubes or rock candy. The bread is spicy and sweet at the same time. Already in the Middle Ages it was the ultimate Easter bread. Just give it a try.
13. LÜBECK SWALLOWS’ NESTS
These simple roulades are a north German specialty. A veal or turkey Schnitzel is rolled into a roulade with ham and boiled egg. Warm with potatoes or sliced cold as finger food.
14. HOMEMADE EGG LIQUEUR
The main ingredients are fresh eggs, alcohol and a vanilla pod. This classic drink is very easy to make yourself. You can season it individually and it goes well with an Easter brunch.
15. EGG BUTTER WITH HERBS AND SPICES
Egg butter is very easy and quick to make. The basic mass consists of butter and yolks from hard-boiled eggs. After that, it can be seasoned with herbs or paprika as desired.
