This list has recipes for 20+ Best Spring Desserts for the sweetest Spring yet! You're going to love every seasonal flavor, fluffy meringue, and buttercream swirl on this list!
What Makes a Good Spring Dessert?
I'm all for making whatever you want, whenever you want. That said, there's a seasonality to food that complements the weather and provides the most flavorful ingredients! Here are a few things that make a dessert perfect for Spring for me:
- Colorful - The first thing I think of when it comes to Spring are beautiful colors! With flowers finally coming into bloom, we need some desserts to match! I'm not a big fan of food colors, so while you'll see lots of colorful options in this list, not a single one has any food color!
- Lighter Fare - While I love a decadent Chocolate Ganache Cake as much as the next girl, I gravitate toward lighter desserts with berry and citrus flavors.
- Seasonal Ingredients - lemons and limes, berries, apricots, rhubarb, and kiwi are typical spring fruits. Keep in mind that the more locally the produce was grown, the more flavorful it will be!
