Gooey Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies that have creme eggs IN the batter and on top!
- 115 grams (1/2 cup or 1 stick) unsalted butter, chopped
- 200 grams (1 and 1/3 cup) good quality dark chocolate, pieces
- 100 grams (1/2 cup) caster sugar
- 90 grams (1/2 cup) brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 large eggs
- 85 grams (2/3 cup) plain flour
- 100 grams (1/2 cup) mini Cadbury Creme Eggs, chopped
- 3 large Cadbury Creme Eggs, cut in half
- Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F) standard / 160 C (320 F) fan-forced. Grease and line a square 8-inch cake tin with baking or parchment paper, ensuring two sides of the paper overhang.
- Pop the butter and chocolate in a heatproof bowl and place over a medium saucepan that is filled with a bit of water, say 5cm (2 inches) high or so. You need to ensure the bottom of the bowl will not touch the water below. Place on the stove on medium heat and stir while the chocolate and butter melt. Once the mixture is lovely and smooth, remove the bowl from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
- Next, add the sugar and vanilla to the chocolate mixture and beat with an electric beater until combined. Add the eggs, one at a time and beat again. Then sift in the flour and beat until the brownie mixture is smooth. Add your chopped mini Creme Eggs. Pour the brownie mixture into your prepared tin and smooth the top.
- Bake the brownie for about 25 minutes, then gently pop the large Creme eggs on top and press them slightly into the brownie. Pop the brownie back into the oven for an additional 20 minutes or until the brownie no longer wobbles in the middle. Leave to cool completely.
The brownie can be hard to cut with the chocolate eggs on top, so it is best to leave it to cool completely before serving. Or even pop into the fridge for a few hours before slicing.
