The Easter Bunny is getting rePurple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette Cakesady to hop along to our house, and we made these yummy Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette Cakes to celebrate and share. I’ve partnered with Bob’s Red Mill to bring you a yummy recipe for Easter.

Carrot cake is one of mine and my husband’s favorite desserts. It’s isn’t overly sweet, and it is loaded with flavor. For this recipe, I decided to use purple carrots instead of orange ones just to give it a new color on the inside. I colored the cream cheese frosting so that it looked like grass and decorated the bundtlette’s with chocolate eggs and bunnies to make them festive.

This is the first time I’ve made a bundt cake let alone little bundtlettes! I loved the design of this pan and thought it would make cute little nests.

I also love that I’m able to find everything I need in organic! There is a big shift happening in the organic industry, and more and more companies are providing organic options for the consumers that want it, and there are a lot that wants it. Bob’s Red Mill is one of those companies. I’ve been using Bob’s Red Mill flours and lots of other products to make recipes for my family. Organic Unbleached White Flour is freshly milled from Organic hard red wheat. Both the bran and the germ have been removed leaving the endosperm that is made into white flour. It is not enriched with any additives. This is the same high protein flour used by professional bakers, and it always results in light, airy baked goods. I just love it. 

If you can’t find purple carrots, you can use any carrots for this recipe. I only used them because purple carrots are slightly sweeter than orange ones and I thought they would make the cakes look a little festive on the inside. Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette CakesOne of my good friends Karen gave me an awesome tip about coating the bundt pan to make the cake come right out. Lightly spray with bakers cooking spray (the kind with flour in it) and then dust the man with finely ground bread crumbs. You can also dust with flour. After dusting, I turned the pan over to get out any excess. This worked like a charm, and the cakes came right out when I flipped them over onto the cooling rake. Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette CakesWhile the bundtlette’s were cooling, I made the cream cheese frosting and then made it green. Because I don’t have the #233 grass tip, I used a #1 tip to make thin ribbons of icing all over the top of the bundtlette.Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette CakesThen, I decorated the carrot cake bundtlette’s with little chocolate eggs, and caramel filled bunnies. You can also use jelly beans as “Easter eggs.”Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette Cakes This recipe makes about 22 bundtlette’s. Because it is spring break, I couldn’t send them to school with the kids, so all of my neighbors got them to try. It was a sweet little surprise to start the time off. It keeps them off my waistline also. Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette CakesI almost forgot to tell the neighbors what was inside the cake. That would have been a surprise to see purple carrots in a carrot cake! I love that these bundtlette’s are the perfect serving size. You can hand a cake to each person if you’re hosting an Easter gathering and they are still decorated. Purple Carrot Easter Bunny Bundtlette Cakes
