Easter Cupcakes – Devil’s Food Cake with Mini Cadbury’s Creme Egg inside
I’ve had the past two weeks off work (score!) and I had been planning to do some baking with my free time, I managed to get half way through my second week off before I realised I had forgotten all about my grand plans. But on Wednesday I whipped up these Creme Egg filled Devil’s Food Cake Cupcakes in a couple of hours. I did cheat and use a ready made cake mix from Betty Crocker though, when I blend my own flour and sugar and whatnot my cakes never rise but Betty’s always do! I prepared the mix and poured it into my cake cases before popping a mini Creme Egg in each, I then baked them for 30 minutes on Gas Mark 4 and they came out looking like this. I don’t think I’ve ever had a batch of cakes rise so well, maybe the Creme Egg’s helped!
I then made some little Easter themed flags to decorate the cakes before digging in, just some craft paper and washi tape stuck to cocktail sticks – super easy. The cakes are so moist and delicious but not too rich which chocolate sometimes can be, I could have eaten quite a few without feeling sick.
Here’s what the cakes looked like in the middle:
