Cream Eggs ideas:
« on: January 28, 2014, 07:36:15 pm »

1 recipe of your favorite pizza dough
4 Cadbury Creme Eggs
powdered sugar, for dusting
4 cup vegetable oil, for frying
Freeze the Cadbury Eggs for at least 4 hours. (This prevents them from melting in the fryer.)

Divide pizza dough into four small balls. Flatten each into a disk no larger than the palm of your hand (trim any excess). Wrap each Cadbury Egg in a disk of dough, rolling well and sealing the edges.

Carefully drop each doughnut into hot oil and fry until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.

Remove from oil, and drain on a paper towel. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired, and eat while warm.


Makes about 20 small brownies


for the brownies

85 g plain flour

2tbsp cocoa powder

170g milk chocolate

113 g butter

2 eggs

140g caster sugar

1tsp vanilla extract

10 mini creme eggs

for the creme topping

85g golden syrup

2tbsp butter

1/2tsp vanilla extract

170g icing sugar

for the chocolate topping

100g milk chocolate

50g butter


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F.

Grease and line a 20cmx20cm tin.

In a heavy based pan, melt the butter and chocolate together over a low heat. Stir constantly and watch the chocolate carefully to make sure it doesn’t burn. Take the chocolate off the heat. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract, then the sugar.

Sift in the flour and cocoa powder. Fold it into the mixture until just combined. Pour into a lined tin lined with grease-proof paper (make sure paper rises up a little higher than the sides to give you space for the toppings). Stud the mixture with the mini creme-eggs, pushing them right down into the brownie mixture.

Bake for 25-30 minutes. I like my brownies still a little gooey so I take them out juts before the look completely cooked. Let the brownies cool completely.

To make the cream, beat the golden syrup, butter and vanilla together until smooth and well combined. Slowly add in the icing sugar and beat until creamy. You might need to add a little water to help it mix. Spread over the top of the brownies and chill in the fridge for about two hours.

Finally, melt the butter and chocolate together in a heavy based pan. Pour over the top of the brownies and leave to set.

OMG! Deep fried Crème Eggs. Think I have to pass on those. No Crème Eggs for me this Easter as I have some excess weight to shift. Saw Crème Egg biscuits the other day but managed to walk away!
Old but spicey!
