Creme Egg Cupcakes

These cupcakes are a crowd pleaser and also very tasty too! We just love crème eggs so had to make crème egg cupcakes, these ones are inspired by crème eggs. You can hide a mini crème egg inside the cupcake if you want to as well! We did half with a crème egg in the middle and half without! We are also lucky enough to have duo icing bags (from Lakeland) so were able to do duo icing of white and orange. If you don’t have a piping bag then you could just swirl the orange food colouring into the buttercream.
Have fun making these and enjoy surprising your guests with the hidden middle!

Cakes:
120g sugar
120g butter
100g self raising flour
20g cocoa powder
2 large eggs
1 tsp baking powder

Icing:
250g icing sugar
80g butter
25ml whole milk
Orange food colouring

½ bar dark chocolate
Bag of mini crème eggs

Method:
1) Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and put cupcake cases in a tray
2) In a free standing mixer beat together the butter and sugar until soft and fluffy looking
3) Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and add the eggs and baking powder, mix until combined but do not over mix
4) Spoon the mixture into the cases, do not be tempted to over fill, ans cook for 15-20 minutes
5) To make the icing beat all the ingredients together with a free hand mixer or in your free standing mixer. The longer you beat the fluffier the icing.
6) Put half of the icing in one side of the piping bag
7) Add orange food colouring to the rest of the icing and mix well. Then put the icing in the other side of the bag
8) Pipe the icing generously onto the cupcakes
9) Melt the dark chocolate and then drizzle over the top of the cupcakes

Happy Easter!

Livia’s Kitchen Blueberry Porridge Squares


When we came across Livia’s Kitchen Blueberry Porridge Squares we knew we had to make them. If you read this blog regularly or follow any of our other social media platforms you will know we are obsessed with porridge, so of course we were going to jump at the chance of making these delicious sweet treats.

The blueberry porridge squares only contain 5 ingredients all of which are healthy and nutritious (and you are most likely to have the ingredients in your kitchen cupboard which is a bonus and makes the recipe inexpensive). They took us less than 5 minutes to prepare and cooking time was between 15-20 minutes. There are lots of other porridge square recipes on Livia’s kitchen and we are certainly going to be testing them out, the Cacao & banana ones look divine.

The squares would be perfect to have for breakfast if you are in a rush or as a mid morning of afternoon snack enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee. We were going away for the weekend to Sheffield so thought they would be the perfect car snack for the 2 ½ hour drive.
