Ingredients

  • 100g soft unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1 tbsp cocoa, for dusting
  • 150g dark chocolate, at least 72% solids, chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 40g plain flour
  • 4 Cadbury Creme Eggs

Step by step

Get ahead
Make these up to the end of step 5 and keep in the fridge until needed. Remove 30 minutes before cooking and cook for 15-17 minutes.
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Grease 4 x 200ml mini pudding basins thickly with soft butter and dust well with cocoa, so that all the butter is covered.
  2. Put 100g butter and the chocolate in a heatproof bowl, set over a pan of hot water to melt gently, stirring occasionally. Set aside and leave to cool completely.
  3. Whisk together the whole eggs, egg yolks and sugar on a fairly high speed for at least 5 minutes using either a stand mixer or hand whisk. The mixture should have a very thick mousse-like consistency, be doubled in size and very pale in colour. When you lift the whisk from the mixture it should leave a thick ribbon trail on top of the surface.
    Tip
    You can speed up chilling the chocolate butter mixture by setting it in a shallow bowl of cold water. Make sure that no water goes into the chocolate.
  4. Whisk in the cooled melted chocolate mixture, then sift over the flour and fold in well. As you mix everything together the mixture will thicken and reduce in volume. The mixture should be thick enough to support the Creme Egg – more spreadable than pourable.
  5. Gently spoon the mixture into the moulds to fill each one about half full, then lay a Creme Egg on top. This should go in sideways, rather than upright. Cover with the remaining mixture.
  6. Put on a baking tray and bake for 12-14 minutes – the mixture should rise about 1cm above the edge of the moulds. Turn out onto serving plates, run a small palette knife around the edge gently to release, if needed. Dust with more cocoa or icing sugar if you like and serve straight away.
