Mardi Gras 2021 is going to look different this year with no parades happening and parties now on the down-low. But you can still get your fill of King Cakes to get you through this carnival season. I found 9 Amazing King Cake Inspired Recipes for Mardi Gras. Some of these have a unique spin on the King Cake idea that you can make while you ‘Yardi Gras’ at home so you can get that fix one way or another. There’s the traditional cakes, cookies, donuts, puppy chow, monkey bread, and more.
So, if you’re on that piece-of-King-Cake-a-day-diet you just might enjoy this variety to spice up this year’s lack of festivities. Once you click on the picture, it will take you to the fellow food blogger page so you can view their recipe and any additional photos – be sure to leave them a comment and tell’em Red Beans and Eric sent you!
If you have a favorite King Cake recipe, whether it’s a traditional one or a fun variation, leave it in the comment section below, we’d love to see it.
If you’re looking for a King Cake in the New Orleans area – or interested in having one shipped to you – following the list of King Cake recipes, I’ve included a list of some of the popular spots in NOLA that you can check out. Some may offer you the opportunity to have the cake shipped out to wherever you are so you can not only help a local New Orleans bakery at this time of need, you can also partake in an original authentic one while helping yourself through this crazy time.
Laissez les bon temps rouler!
