Easter edition. Since this festive season is now upon us I thought I'd share a common favourite of mine at this time of year. Back in my high school home economics class I was introduced to these revolutionary muffins laden with gooey caramel and chocolatey goodness. Since then and I won't lie, it's been a good 10+ years since that fateful class and these bad boys almost always make an appearance during the festivities.

These pretties are at their best straight from the oven. It's such a thrill pulling one apart and watching molten caramel and chocolate oozing out. Though please keep in mind this glutinous goodness is extremely hot! Something I tend to forget.

This time round this batch didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped. Firstly I muddled up the mixture process by adding the wet ingredients to the dry, which is meant to be the other way round. And finally the caramel eggs where a tad to big. I actually couldn't find any small ones so had to settle for the larger and sadly they didn't melt properly. They still tasted delicious so it wasn't that much of a kerfuffle, just texture wise a harder centre as opposed to a much anticipated softer one.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

 INGREDIENTS: 
2 1/4 cup self raising flour
2/3 cup caster sugar
125g butter, melted and cooled slightly
3/4 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
12 small caramel eggs

Preheat oven to 180°C / 350°F and line a muffin tray with 12 paper cases.
Sift flour and stir in sugar. In a separate bowl whisk the melted butter, milk, eggs and vanilla essence together then transfer to sifted flour and sugar mixture. Mix until just combined.
Spoon 1/4 of the batter mixture into the paper cases and then place one caramel egg in the center and cover with batter.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden.

Don't forget these bad boys are best eaten hot but please be mindful that the caramel is extremely hot! So take care when eating. These are also perfect if you have extra eggs lying around, which most of us will, so why not try something a little different and make the most out of them.

What are you guys getting up to over the Easter break? Perhaps some light baking? Whatever it may be sending you all warm wishes for a gorgeous Easter filled with lots of love and obviously chocolate.

Et Voila.

  53. Yum, I like this as another option for Easter compared to Hot Cross Buns. I made my own batch this year and they totally beat the store bought ones. Theres something satisfying in eating your own hand made food!

    P.s. First time I've visited your blog and I love it!
