Cadbury is my favourite chocolate, but making a cadburys cake hadn’t come into my kitchen until now. For an Easter recipe, it seems a good idea to use one of the things that we only get for a few months each year, the renowned Cadburys Creme Egg.
The kids wanted a tray bake to take to a friend’s house, but I had so little that would actually fit into any one recipe and sponge didn’t seem to be the answer. I had too few eggs, so it had to be brownies.
My eldest pottered round to the local co-0p and came back with a variety of cream eggs, with different fillings. It wasn’t quite what I’d asked for, but hey ho, they were all Cadburys chocolate of some sort.
We ended up with some full sized Cadbury Creme Eggs, and some Cadbury Caramel Mini Eggs. I was at a bit of a loss, so brownies seemed to be the answer for this conundrum. I’m just glad these are going out of the house, as they are delicious and far too calorie laden to be more than an odd treat.

- 250g Unsalted Butter (Softened)
- 375g Caster Sugar
- 200 Grams Plain Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 50g Cocoa Powder
- 5 – 6 Cadbury Creme Eggs
- 16 Cadbury Mini Eggs
- 1 teaspoon Coffee Powder (Optional)
Preheat your oven before you start and set it to 180ºC, or reduce it to 160ºC for a fan oven.
Grease a medium to large baking try or roasting tin.
fAdd all the ingredients to the mixer, or bowl, and mix/fold until smooth. Many people will beat the sugar and eggs together first, but I don’t bother for brownies. I just throw it all in.
Pour into your choice of baking tray and smooth it all into the edges.
fPut into the oven for 20 minutes, lightly score the top of the mixture in the cake tin into portions and push half or a whole mini egg into each portion.
fPut the brownies back into the oven for a further 20 – 25 minutes, or until the mixture stops wobbling when you shake the pan.
fLet your Cadburys Brownies cool down before putting smushed pieces of Cadbury’s Creme Egg on the top and serving. The kids wanted a bit of colour, so we added a little icing writing to the plate, which pleased them very much.
