Easy cake recipes for Easter

     I don`t  know about you, but whenever a holiday is aproaching, I`m always on the clock. Such in a hurry all the time; the cleaning, th food, the sweets. It`s like 24 hours per day is not enought. This is why I thought to put together some of my yummiest and easiest cake recipes. The best part of these cakes is that you can make them ahead. They can all be stored easily in a cool place, so you can make them with a couple of days before Easter.

So, here we go:

   1. Lemon Cake 

The Lemon Cake is a refreshing cake, for which you have to use cake sheets. If you haven`t done those until now, don`t worry, I have it all explained right here. 

     2. Baigli with nuts and poppy seeds

This recipe it`s been in my family for years. This is a hungarian recipe, a kind of rolled cake with nuts and poppy seeds. It`s perfect for any ocasions. We usually do it for Christmas and Easter. My mother has a strange taste : she eats baigli with Easter eggs. It`s a strange combinations, but she says it tastes amazing.

   3. Ishler - chocolate cookies

 These ishler cookies  require to make a dought, but don`t worry, it`s easy to make. The best part of these cookies is that you can make them as small or as big as you want. These are so easy to store. After the frosting is stiff, you can put them in a box, on the top of eachother.

  4.  Chocolate cake wrapped in coconut

This is our version of the Australian cakes named lamingtones. I learned this a couple of days ago. The process of making this cake,  is a little bit messy, but it`s worth it.

    As I said, all these cakes are easy to make, and you can make them ahead with a couple of days. 
   Let me know what kind of cakes you will make this Easter. And of course, don`t forget to share, or like, or maybe even drop me a line :)
