Domestic Goddess | Creme Egg Brownies

Back at you today with a special Easter 'Domestic Goddess' post featuring the nations favourite sweet, the great British Creme Egg.  I saw this recipe in various forms across platforms such as Buzzfeed, Pinterest and it has even began to grace Facebook so being the budding baker I so truly am I thought I would do my own rendition of Creme Egg Brownies and share them with you here today.

This sweet is great for an Easter spread if you're not into the traditional hot cross buns or plain chocolate eggs we are so used to receiving, or perhaps you're just like me and have a serial sweet tooth and cake addiction, the first step to solving any problem is admitting there is a problem... step two for me is embracing said problem and baking myself stupid anyway! These (as usual) are really easy to bake, in complete honesty they are just a normal brownie recipe with a few sweet modifications, in fact if you're feeling super lazy you could even buy ready to mix brownie batter, but mine taste way better so please do try this before throwing the mitts in!

Digital Scales
2 Bowls
Baking Tin
Wooden Spoon

200g Cadburys Milk Chocolate (or your favourite brand)
6 Creme Eggs
275g Caster Sugar
40g Cadburys Coco Powder
185g Unsalted Butter
85g Plain Flour
3 Large Eggs
White Chocolate Chips

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C then melt your butter and Cadburys chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a boiling pan of water. When completely melted set to one side to cool.
  2. In another bowl crack your 3 eggs and add your sugar. Whisk this until the eggs and sugar are combined and the mixture is a mousse like consistency (this will take a while and some elbow grease) Add your two mixtures together and mix well until fully combined.
  3. Seive in your flour and coco powder then gently fold into the wet mixture. When the mixtures are to a thick, chocolatey consistency add in as many of your white choc chips as you like and mix well so they are evenly distributed throughout.
  4. Pour the mixture into your baking tin (as you see mine is new and heart shaped from ASDA - which I love!) and bake in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the mixture from the oven and you're ready to add your creme eggs. Cut them all in half and place them on top of the mixture evenly spaced (they will sink in - this is fine!) Cook them for a further 10 - 15 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Serving suggestion:

Serve warm with some cream and strawberries on the side.

Your brownies if stored properly, covered in foil in a tupperwear box, will last around 3 or 4 days, but as this mixture makes a rather large amount of brownies I doubt you'll be able to finish them yourself (despite the fact I did) Do let me know if you give these a go I would love to see how you got on and of course if you loved them just as much as I did. Be sure to comment any thoughts, questions or general musings you have below, Tweet me your baking pictures or of course if you'd just like to see a bit more be sure to follow Granite City Girl on Bloglovin.

Until next time folks, happy Easter!
