Wishing everyone a happy easter. In the spirit of all things cute and fluffy and easter-like, I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest. This was the perfect recipe to pleasantly spend a rainy, grey afternoon.
It's a cake!! Baked inside an eggshell!! So you give someone a basket of eggs and they crack the egg open to reveal a cake inside. Logical? No. Cute, lol, definitely!
This is a long enough process, so just get a cake mix for the inside. I used Trader Joes vanilla bourbon cake mix and threw in some peanut butter chips.
For the outside - 6 eggs.
Oil - a teaspoon
1. Prick a small hole on the bottom of the egg and drain out the contents.
2. Rinse the eggshells in hot water and then allow to soak in cold salted water for about 10 minutes.
3. Drain the water and pour a little oil into the eggshell and swish it around.
4. Now pipe the cake batter into the hole in the eggshell and fill it up half way.
5. Place in a mini cupcake tin in a bed of aluminium foil to prevent tipping. Bake for 12-15 minutes (or the recommended cupcake time on the box)
6. Allow to cool for about 30 minutes and scrape off any excess cake on the surface of the egg shell.
Voila - fresh cake eggs are ready to pleasantly surprise your loved one!! I'm sure this will be a huge hit with the kids. I had a lot of fun trying out the recipe and hope you will too!
