So easter is fast approaching and one of my absolute favourite things to eat at this time of year is a good old Crème egg. My thighs don’t thank me for it but a girls got to do what a girls go to do. If you know what I mean? 

If you fancy trying one of these delicious treats here is what you will need.

  • 110g/4oz caster sugar
  • 2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extractwp-1490021131409.jpg
  • 110g/4oz self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tbsp milk

 

For the buttercream icing

  • 140g/5oz butter, softened
  • 280g/10oz icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk
  • Crème egg minis
  • maple syrup
  • chocolate any kind I used Cadbury dairy milk

(For the buttercream add the icing sugar milk and butter to a bowl and mix until it becomes a thick consistency, its that easy).

My method is easy –

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (Fan assisted) do this whilst your faffing around measuring things.
  • Put your mini crème eggs in the freezer.
  • I put all my ingredients in a bowl and mix mix mix, I know people say separate this first and whisk that but my cakes have always turned out beautifully doing it my own way!.
  • Once the batter is prepared separate into your cake cases, I used 12 and I had no cake batter left over after .
  • Put into the oven for around 15 – 20 minutes until golden.
  • Let them cool on a wire rack.
  • Whilst they are cooling take the crème eggs out of the freezer and cut in half.
  • Melt some chocolate.
  • I then piped my buttercream onto my cakes, followed by half a mini crème egg a drizzle of chocolate and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  • Then Eat, oh yeah and enjoy!

  1. Oh my God! Those look ah-maaazing! I’ve got a lot of the ingredients at home already which makes me EVEN more excited. The only thing is that I don’t think they sell the creme eggs here, but I’m sure that with Easter around the corner I can find a suitable replacement.
