With some white cake mix, strawberry gelatin, fresh strawberries and a few basic baking ingredients, you are in for a world of moist, bright flavor in this cake. Strawberry gelatin makes the cake beautiful pink throughout, but also imparts its sweetness throughout in all the right ways.

If there’s one flavor that is particularly perfect for spring, it has to be lemon! It pairs well with so many berries and flavors of the season, adding its tangy sweetness effortlessly to anything it touches. All you need to make these delicious lemon cookies is the zest of 3 lemons and lemon juice, the rest is just like a basic sugar cookie! Bonus points for the powdered sugar topping. 😍
The combination of an easy recipe and wildly unique flavor makes these cookies a home run for springtime. Using ground lavender, these cookies mix the light, subtle flavor of lavender with rich, warm pecans in a simple cookie dough. Ready in under 30 minutes, these would go great with a white tea.
Made with lots of butter and brown sugar, these blondies are rich as can be and sweet enough to make any day special. To get your browned butter, melt butter and let bubble 3-4 minutes before adding in brown sugar to dissolve into a velvety caramel toffee. Bring your toffee to room temperature before adding in eggs and vanilla before combining with your flour, baking powder and salt. Finally, you’ll fold in your white chocolate chips before spreading in a brownie pan and baking 20-24 minutes. Yum!
Although they are a great choice year-round, funfetti is a great spring flavor for its bright colors that are very much reminiscent of all the flowers blooming this time of year! While you could add sprinkles to pancakes and call it a day, this pancake recipe utilizes funfetti cake mix itself for the pancakes so you get the same confetti-ed flavor throughout. Topped with a thick and creamy frosting, these are a great way to kick off any birthday or celebratory day!
Super fluffy with a moist center, these cookies put pink lemonade mix to use in a way few have before! If you have not used pink lemonade powder before, it is pleasantly sweet with a slight sourness to it. When combined with standard cookie ingredients and alternative sugar, the tangy-ness of this mix shines very much like lemon does in other uses. Topped with a pink lemonade frosting, we know these are a refreshing change of pace for any sweet tooth!
Filled with the luscious flavors of coconut, raisins and pecans, these carrot cake cookies are loaded with enough good-for-you fiber and nutrients to get away with as a breakfast treat!

It’s amazing what a half teaspoon of orange extract and 2 tablespoons of orange zest can do! In this case, it turns otherwise perfectly yummy sugar cookies into tangy, bright, rich and exotic orange creamsicle goodness! It’s the combination of orange with gooey white chocolate chips that makes these cookies a home run, the perfect addition to any barbecue!

There’s something to love when a recipe is no-bake. Just combine your ingredients and let set in the refrigerator for the flavors to meld and pure-deliciousness to set!

Prepped in under 10 minutes and requiring just a few hours in the fridge to set, this coconut cheesecake is a great way to get away from classic chocolate and vanilla desserts!
