Cadbury Creme Egg muffins recipe

Creme Egg

Ok, these are going to kick your arse.  Honest. ;)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 75 g soft (room temp) butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar/Splenda or alternative
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 12 mini cadbury creme eggs

Equipment:

  • Usual bowls and mixing things
  • An oven
  • 12-pan muffin tray – for making medium sized muffins
  • Cute Easter themed muffin tray liners

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. In a large bowl combine sugar, eggs, melted butter, vanilla essence and milk.
  3. Fold the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) into the wet mixture.
  4. This makes a dozen, so spoon most of the mixture out into a standard 12-muffin tray, lined with the cutest Easter themed muffin liners you can find. <3 Leave a bit of mixture in the bowl as you need to cover up the Creme Eggs.
  5. Push a Creme Egg into the center of each muffin and cover them up with the left over mixture. This is where you can add a light sprinkling of chocolate chips to the top of the muffins… no?  Go for it, go on! ;)
  6. Bake for approx 15 minutes.

You can tell when a muffin is cooked as it bounces back on top and is slightly golden around the outside. Or you can poke it with a cake-poking-stick (skewer) and they come out clean. Well, maybe not in this case as there are Creme Eggs in the middle…

Happy Easter!
