20 Scones, Muffins, and Quick Breads to Make for Easter Brunch

Every year for Easter brunch, whether I'm hosting or heading elsewhere, I always bake some treats for the occasion. Not only can I be sure that a platter of muffins or scones will be a hit with the whole family, but these crowd-pleasing treats are also a snap to pull together well in advance. Here are 20 of my top picks.

Muffins with a Sweet Spin

Muffins are a beloved treat, and always make a great addition to the Easter morning spread. Even though Easter is a little early this year, a sweet batch of muffins is the perfect way to bring a pop of spring to the brunch spread.

Savory Muffins

Savory muffins are a great choice when you want add something unique to the brunch spread that doesn't require too much fuss. Make the muffins in advance and then pop them in a warm oven just before serving.


While scones aren't terribly tricky to make, there's something about them that always feels a touch fancy. It's what makes these buttery baked biscuit-like treats one of my favorite make-ahead picks for Easter.

Quick Bread

Quick bread is basically a muffin in loaf form. What I love about this sweet breakfast treat is that you have a little more control over serving size and can stretch it far. I always slice the bread before serving; when there are a lot of guests, I go one step further by halving the slices.

Coffee Cake

It's really hard to beat a good, crumbly-topped coffee cake. Keep it classic, or give your breakfast cake a fancy twist by baking it in a Bundt pan or adding a streusel ripple through the center. Either way, this is a hit the whole crowd will adore.
