cadbury creme-egg cupcake


Well there is no escaping the fact that Easter is fast upon us!.. The shops are brimming to the top with every kind of Easter egg under the sun INCLUDING  and I kid you not a cheese one. Check out this  CHEASTER EGG now available in Iceland supermarkets. That is most definitely not on my Easter Bunny’s List. I can just imagine the looks on the kids faces. Chocolate all the way for me!

Now love them or hate them Cadbury Creme-Eggs are everywhere and the blog world is chocker full of delicious recipes featuring these overly sweet but addictive creme-egg.

Last year I made a very scrumptious over the top Creme-Egg Easter Nest Cake,  you can check out that recipe here



This year it’s all about the cupcakes,  no ordinary cupcakes mind-you.  These are serious indulgent.  A rich chocolate sponge hides a mini creme-egg and I’ve topped them with the most scrumptious lemon mascarpone cream frosting.  I finished each cupcake with meringue sprinkles and another creme-egg.

The recipe for the cupcake is a simple chocolate sponge . I  drop a couple of spoonfuls of batter into each muffin case then place a mini creme-egg on top of the batter and cover with more batter.  This is the important bit make sure you use the mini Cadbury creme-eggs, not the normal size ones. Another great tip is to  freeze the creme eggs before using them ( a couple  of hours will do) , this will prevent them from melting in the oven.  Once the cupcakes are baked, the creme-eggs  inside the cupcake will be soft and gooey but still look like a creme-egg.

The crowning glory here is the lemon mascarpone frosting made with fresh whipped cream.  Of course you could just use a simple lemon buttercream, but  why go for plain and simple when you can have something glorious and indulgent and after all it is Easter.
