Creme Egg Cake

This was an eventuality. Its that time of year, chocolate Easter eggs have been on sale for just over a month and we are falling captive to the various supermarket deals on those moreish eggs that are only available for a few months a year.

There seems to be lots of recipes using Cadbury Creme Eggs, brownies in particular. So thought I might as well make a Cadbury Creme Egg cake...hope you enjoy making this one.. super easy and fairly damn impressive! (Makes a brownie-like cake)

Serves 12
Pre-heat the oven to 180°C
Bake to perfection for 25-30 minutes

You will need the following:

350g Butter 
350g Golden Caster Sugar 
6 Eggs 
75g Cocoa
200g Self Raising Flour
100g Nutella 

Middle White Icing 
150g Icing Sugar 
2Tbsp Water 

Middle Orange Icing
75g Icing Sugar
1Tbsp Water 
1Drop of Orange Colouring
Juice of Half an Orange

Chocolate Top Icing
200g Nutella
50g Icing Sugar 
2Tbsp Water 
2 80g packets of mini Creme Eggs, halved

Cream together your butter and sugar 

Add in your eggs one at a time, once the previous has combined into the mix

Sift in the Cocoa Powder and fold into the mix

Sift in the Flour and fold into the mix 

Add in the Nutella 
Divide between two 9inch tins

Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes

Make your three icings whilst the cake is cooking by combining the ingredients in 3 separate bowls, as set out in the ingredients above
Once the cakes have cooled build your cake

Cover the bottom cake with the white icing 
On top of the white icing pour the orange icing in the middle 

Stack the second cake and pour over the chocolate icing 
Halve the mini Creme Eggs and place around the edge of the cake
