One of our favourite things about Easter is the glut of Creme Eggs that hit the supermarket shelves. If you've been stocking up on these gooey treats, this melting Creme Egg bundt cake is a great way of making them go even further. With a rich, chocolate sponge and a thick chocolate topping, this cake is a chocoholic's dream. This cake has 6 Creme Eggs hiding inside the sponge so when you cut into it you can reveal it's gooey, melting insides. It is also topped with more Creme Eggs which have been cut and melted slightly thanks to the warm chocolate topping. This is the perfect showstopper come Easter Sunday.

Ingredients

For the cake:
  • 300g butter
  • 300g caster sugar
  • 5 medium eggs
  • 250 self-raising flour
  • 150g cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 6 Creme Eggs
To decorate:
  • 200g milk chocolate
  • 4 Creme Eggs
You will also need:
  • A small bundt tin
  • Cake release spray

If your bundt has cooked outside in, cover with tin foil and pop back into the oven. Bake for another 5 mins, check and then repeat if needed.

Method

  1. Preheat oven 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 and spray the bundt tin with the cake release spray.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk all of the ingredients together, except for the Creme Eggs. Once the mixture is combined, pour into the bundt tin. Standing the Creme Eggs upright, push them gently into the mixture spreading them evenly apart around the tin. Make sure they dont touch the base of the tin. Cover the top of the eggs with the cake mixture, you can use a spoon to do this. Mark on the tin with a pen where each egg has been placed so you know where to cut.
  3. Pop in the oven and bake for 30-35 mins until springy to touch.
  4. Leave to cool in the tin.
  5. Meanwhile melt the chocolate in the microwave on low heat in short bursts, stirring until melted. Place the cake onto a serving plate, marking from the lines on the tin where each egg is. Pour the melted chocolate over the top.
  6. Whilst the chocolate settles, cut the remaining Creme Egg with a sharp knife right down the middle to reveal the gooey centre. Decorate around the cake, being as messy as possible.
  7. Serve and cut to reveal the gooey Creme Egg centre using the marked points on the plate.
