Easter Cake

Easter is a great time to get yourself and the kids into the kitchen to do some family baking. This recipe is really easy to make and tastes delicious. We’ve used mini eggs to flavour and decorate, but you can add any of your favourite chocolates. We have also served this cake warm with ice cream for a nice simple Easter dessert.

Easter Mini eggs chocolate concrete cake

Makes 1 cake

Prep time 15 minutes

Bake time 35 minutes



255g caster sugar

255g margarine or soften butter if you prefer

170g plain flour

170g self raising flour

30g cocoa powder

1 beaten egg

2x 80g bags mini eggs


Here’s how

Preheat your oven to 170c

In a mixer or with a bowl and wooden spoon, beat together the sugar and margarine until pale and fluffy

Add the egg into the mixture and combine together.

Sieve and mix in the two flours and the cocoa powder until all the ingredients are fully incorporated and you have a stiff, cookie dough like mixture

Spread the mixture into a non stick or greased and lined square tin

Push the mini eggs into the dough so that you can just see the top of the mini eggs and they are level with the top of the mixture.

Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until firm

Sprinkle with sugar or drizzle some melted chocolate over the top while still warm.
