One-Pan Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies
These are an adaptation of my mom's one-pan brownie recipe, which is made a lot in my home because they are super easy to bake and you only have one spoon to wash (and a bowl if you make icing). Because there are only dry ingredients to measure, I don't even wash the measuring cups—I just wipe them out with a paper towel.
To make these Cadbury Creme Egg Brownies, I added a package of frozen Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs to the batter and made a Cadbury Creme Egg Icing from a couple of the larger Cadbury Creme Eggs. Using frozen chocolate eggs keeps them intact and prevents them from melting before the batter has set.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3/4 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 300 grams Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs, frozen
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup icing sugar
- 2 regular-sized Cadbury Creme Eggs
- (Optional) 2 regular-sized Cadbury Creme Eggs for garnishing the top
- Preheat the oven to 350˚F.
- Remove the wrappers from the mini eggs and place them back in the freezer.
- Place an oven-safe 8x8 baking pan on a burner on top of the stove on medium heat.
- Melt the butter, being careful not to let it burn.
- Remove the pan from the heat.
- Add the sugar and cocoa and mix.
- Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
- Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix well.
- Place Mini Cadbury Creme Eggs about one inch apart, spaced evenly in the batter.
- Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
- Make the icing: Blend the butter, Cadbury Creme Eggs and icing sugar with an electric hand mixer until smooth and creamy.
- Allow to cool completely before icing.
- Optional: Chop two more Creme Eggs to sprinkle on top.
- Cut into 16 pieces.
I hope you enjoy these Cadbury Creme Egg One Pan Brownies as much as my family did. Thank goodness Cadbury Creme Eggs are only available during the Spring, otherwise I would be tempted to bake these a little too often!
