Recipe: Chocolate Easter Egg Muffins

I decided to try something a little different this Easter and bake some easter eggs inside muffins – hoping it would result in an oozy, delicious centre to the muffins and it did not disappoint! These lasted approximately 0.05 seconds from the oven, with my housemates happily taking on the task of taste-testers (and then going back for seconds!)

I used caramel filled easter eggs but I think these would work equally well with solid chocolate eggs, peppermint filled eggs or any other that takes your fancy!

Ingredients List

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk (I use almond)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Salt
  • Easter Eggs

Steps

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F
  2. Whisk together the milk and vinegar and set aside for a few minutes to slightly curdle
  3. Add the sugar, oil and extract and mix together until foamy
  4. Sift in flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt and mix until no large lumps remain
  5. Pour into patty-pans until 2/3 full
  6. Place an unwrapped easter egg in the middle then cover with remaining mixture
  7. Bake for 18-20 minutes
  8. Enjoy while warm

What’s your favourite flavour easter egg? Hope you’re having a lovely start to the long weekend!

    These are so CUTE! What a great idea!! I’m not a big fan of easter eggs generally – they use such cheap chocolate in them these days – gotta say though, I’ll always be a sucker for caramello eggs!

      I’m actually not that big a chocolate fan (is it okay to admit that?!) but caramello eggs are definitely my favourite easter eggs so this was a nice way to use them!
