For Easter Dessert I wanted to make something with spring flavors. Poke cakes are super easy to make so I decided to make a Raspberry Lemon Poke Cake.
The cake is just plain vanilla made from a Betty Crocker mix. I was thinking about using a lemon cake mix, but I thought the lemon would be too overpowering.
I poured raspberry sauce into the poke holes made from raspberry jam and water.
I topped the cake with a lemon pudding and cool whip mixture. This turned out so yummy. There was a light lemon flavor in the topping, just enough to stand up to the cake.
I also made these Cranberry Sage Cookies cut out like bunnies and butterflies for Easter gifts to give my parents, sister and mom-in-law. They are like a shortbread cookie packed with flavor.
For a wine pairing with Easter dinner, of which consisted of ham, I chose a sparkling Rosé (Korbel Brut Rosé Champagne). It is light to medium bodied to not overpower the ham and has fruity flavors of strawberry and cherries. If your ham is sweeter you should probably go with a sweeter wine like a Riesling. Pinot Noir is also a good choice to pair with a ham dinner.
