Ingredients

  • 185g unsalted butter
  • 185g best dark chocolate
  • 85g plain flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 3 large eggs
  • 275g golden caster sugar
  • 6 cadbury's Crème Eggs, cut in half

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160c and grease a 20cm square baking tin.

  2. Melt the butter and dark chocolate together either in the microwave or in a bowl over hot water.

  3. Break 3 large eggs into a large bowl and tip in 275g of golden caster sugar. With an electric mixer on maximum speed, whisk the eggs and sugar until they look thick and creamy, like a milkshake! This can take 3-8 minutes. TIP, you'll know its ready when the mixture becomes pale and about double it's original volume.

  4. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mousse, then gently fold together.

  5. Hold a sieve over the bowl of eggy chocolate mixture and sift the cocoa and flour mixture, shaking the sieve from side to side, to cover the top evenly. Gently, fold in the mixture.

  6. Pour into the baking tin and cook for 15 minutes then take it our of the oven and gently press the Cadbury's Crème Egg halves into the mix spacing them apart evenly. Put back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.

  7. Leave to cool before removing from the tin and cutting.

  8. Enjoy!

Just made this for my daughters birthday, followed instructions exactly and was left with a sloppy mess in the baking tin which I thought would set in time for her birthday tea. Now off to the supermarket for a cake as I don't have time to make another . Very disappointed.

I agree that these need longer than the stated time - I left mine for 35 minutes at 180c and then added the Creme eggs and baked for another 10 minutes and they were perfect. Has anyone tried an alternative to Creme Eggs? Now that Easter is over I was thinking of trying something different but wasn't sure if anyone had any good recommendations? :)

Good recipe but does not cook after 25 minutes on fan 160. Needs to be cooked for double the time otherwise it is raw.

Does not bake at all! Still just liquid below crust even after being in oven for 15 min over suggested time.

These were delicious-but the recipe needs adapting. I cooked them for about 50 minutes and they set really well if cut left in the fridge and then cut into squares. I baked on greaseproof paper and they were easy to come off. If you want the chunks of chocolate (which were yummy) put the eggs in at the start, but if you want to see the in the brownies add them after 20 minutes or so. Enjoy!

As others have mentioned in the comments, these brownies do not cook after 25 mins at 160 degrees! My advice would be to not add the Crème Eggs after 15 minutes, but to add them when you feel that the brownies are nearly cooked. Otherwise, the sugar in the cream eggs starts to go hard and burn!
