Ever had a deep fried Mars bar? Deep fried Easter Creme Eggs are a fun indulgence — a tasty, gooey once-a-year treat! The batter is light and fluffy, perfect to counteract the sweetness of the treat inside.
Balls of (not overly sweet) challah are rolled in butter, cinnamon sugar, and a very lightly toasted sesame mix before getting packed into a Bundt pan so it develops a deeply sweet caramelized shell as it bakes. Then you sit around the table and pull it apart with your fingers. A solid win.
Packaged snacks are great. If you have the bandwidth, spend the weekend working on a few baking projects as a family. The fruits of your labour become a satisfying after-school tummy grumbles. Plus, they're all very delicious. Take note, some double as on-the-go breakfast eats.
