Later than planned I have managed to write up this Mini Egg Cake on the train(s) to Gatwick (thanks to holiday engineering work it’s taking 3 hrs just to get to the airport). I’m heading home to Cornwall for Easter and made this chocolate and vanilla cake for my neighbours as a thank you for feeding my little monsters while I’m away. Rob declared that he doesn’t like chocolate cake but I’m pretty sure this will bring him round. Happy Easter folks!
My new landlady/housemate Kim asked me if I could make her some earl grey hot cross buns for Easter and as if by magic the March edition of Waitrose Kitchen magazine had these beauties by Izy Hossack of Top with Cinnamon fame so I gave them a whirl. Travelling down to Cornwall for Easter I didn’t get chance to taste one but I’ve been assured that they taste better than they look! Happy Easter folks!
Post move my mac has decided it’s full. Despite having no photos on the HD it seems to think it has over 3GB of the swines. I have had to sacrifice a whole series of New Girl just to open Photoshop and everything is painfully slow. It took me less time to make this mini egg chocolate slab than it did to edit the shots! It makes a great alternative to Easter eggs. I love Hotel Chocolat’s slabs so thought I would have a go at making my own in the run up to Easter. Super easy to do and a fraction of the cost of shop bought eggs.
