In the Kitchen -Cadbury Cupcakes

Ladies and gentlemen I’d like to say I’M BACK!! Although I’m still recovering from my knee injury for the first time in months I was inspired enough to step into the kitchen and bake something new. I don’t promise that I will have weekly posts going forward, but I will try to be more active. I’m still relying on my taste testers to tell me if a recipe is good and this cupcake got the seal of approval! I will say though that these cupcakes are EXTREMELY sweet and not for everyone. I noticed a lot of recipes online mentioning using Cadbury cream eggs as the base & I decided to take 2 recipes I found and combine them together. I took my recipes from Pizzazzerie (which I have been a fan of for a VERY long time) and Culinary Concoctions by Peabodyย (which I found through good ol’ pinterest).

cadbury cupcakes

Cupcake Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3.4 oz Jell-O instant pudding in Chocolate Fudge (1 package)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs

Instructions:

  1. pre heat oven to 350 degrees
  2. combine all ingredients together and beat on medium high until fully mixed, about 60 seconds
  3. bake for 18-20 minutes

Frosting Ingredients:

  • filling from 24 Cadbury cream eggs (you’ll want to save the shells to garnish your cupcakes
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 4-6 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • milk to thin frosting if needed

Instructions:

  1. place butter in mixing bowlย 
  2. add 4 cups powdered sugar
  3. add vanilla extract
  4. beat with mixer until smooth and creamy, 3-5 minutes
  5. at this point you can taste the frosting and see if you want it to be sweeter, I added the extra 2 cups of powdered sugar but you can choose not to
  6. if you frosting is too thick you can pour some milk while beating to make it a better consistency
  7. frost cupcakes and garnish with half of a Cadbury egg

The most tedious part of the whole process was sitting there and scooping out the insides of all the Cadbury eggs! The insides are my favorite so it was very hard for me not to just eat it all! This cupcake will truly be something everyone will love at your Easter celebration. I hope you enjoyed this sweet Easter treat & follow me on Pinterest to help me pick what I make next! Also I just want to say I truly appreciate everyone who has stuck around while I took this unplanned hiatus, hopefully the road to recovery continues to go smoothly.
