Carrot Cake Pancakes and Uses for Leftover Easter Eggs

It's almost Easter and the Easter Bunny is hopping over to our house today with these delicious Carrot Cake Pancakes I'm sharing over at This recipe was pretty simple (and healthy). And I'm completely in love with the Maple-Cinnamon Cream Cheese Spread on top. I've been eating the leftover spread on toast. Yum.

And, of course, we're dying Easter Eggs again so I'm planning on making a few of my favorite recipes to use up hard-boiled eggs next week. My husband is super excited about that, because he is absolutely in LOVE with deviled eggs and egg salad sandwiches.

The Results
I really like these pancakes (especially the spread) I think next time I make these I'm going to try adding carrots and walnuts to our new favorite pancake recipe, IHOP-Style Pancakes, because the Carrot Cake pancake base is a little dense for my pancake tastes.

  1. Great ideas! We always dye eggs, but no one around here ever eats them hard-boiled...will have to try one of these out!

  2. What I did this year was to open just one end of the eggshells with a knife and pour the raw eggs out into a bowl (had to poke the yolk to break it) and use them for cooking, and then we dyed just the shells. As it happened, my preschooler wanted ALL THE EGGS YELLOW, so I used a turmeric solution. That way I didn't have to worry about the waste from no one wanting to eat turmeric-flavored eggs. :)

  3. This is such a great post, with three really delicious sounding recipes. It's always nice to have inspiration for how to use up the leftover hard boiled eggs from Easter!
