Creme Egg Surprise Cake

This delicious Creme Egg Surprise Cake is a vanilla flavoured sponge containing Cadbury Mini Eggs ,aswell as hidden Cadbury Creme Egg slices in every slice. Delicious!

With Easter almost here, what better excuse to get baking with Cadbury Creme Eggs and Mini Eggs. Of course there are so many amazing recipes out there already using these yummy chocolates, so it is hard coming up with new ideas. However, I hope that my Creme Egg Surprise Cake is not too common.

It is a fairly easy and straight forward cake to make , and of course decorating it with mini eggs helps it to look pretty with their pastel colours. 

The ‘surprise’ element to this cake, is that fact that each slice contains half a Cadbury Creme Egg.

The only slight trouble with using creme egg slices, is that a lot of the gooey centre oozes out of the cake while it cooks, which adds a wonderful caramelisation to the cake. However, it does mean that the cake slices while containing a slice of creme egg, it is mostly the chocolate left!

Mind you, this does not take away any yumminess!

You can just see the crushed mini eggs that were cooked inside the batter also

  1. This cake looks incredible! I know it’s another one of your bakes that my husband would love as he is addicted to mini eggs and creme eggs. I have to hide them from him if I ever buy some to bake with! Thanks so much for featuring my peanut butter cookies too x

  2. Completely get what you mean about it being hard to come up with new Easter recipes! It seems to be the time of year when the most sweet recipes have already been made!
    I love the look of your mini egg surprise cake. As someone who isn’t too keen on creme eggs, I like the idea of them melting into the cake because their sweet flavour would work nicely with the yummy cake. x

  3. wow what a cake Jenny! I love the creme eggs baked inside, that gives such a lovely flavour doesn’t it. and mini eggs are so pretty on top! I would love a slice or two please!

  4. Your cake has got Easter written all over it Jenny and the Creme Egg surprise element is a great idea! Super decadent with all that chocolate and to be honest that’s what Easter is all about! Love it! xx

  5. That’s a lovely round-up Jenny….. and quite some cake too! You definitely won’t miss out on Easter chocolate with this one. So pretty with the mini eggs on top….. I always think mini eggs are so photogenic x

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, a virtual cup of tea and slice of cake awaits you x
