Cadbury mini eggs cake recipe is the perfect recipe for Easter! A deliciously moist and fluffy vanilla cake with bits of mini eggs inside and a robin’s egg blue buttercream frosting is one of the best mini eggs cake ideas!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line the bottoms of two 8-inch cake pans with parchment paper and spray with baking spray.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream sugar and softened butter 3-5 minutes or until fluffy, scraping the bowl down as needed.
1¼ cup granulated sugar, ½ cup unsalted butter
Add eggs one at a time, followed by vanilla, oil, and buttermilk, mixing well after each addition.
2 large eggs, 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract, ¼ cup vegetable oil, 1 ¼ cup buttermilk
Sift in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and fold in until just combined.
2 ½ cup cake flour, 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder, ½ teaspoon baking soda, ¾ teaspoon salt
In a separate bowl, stir crushed mini eggs with 1 tablespoon flour to coat.
1 cup Cadbury Mini Eggs
Add coated mini eggs to the batter and fold gently until just combined.
Transfer batter to prepared cake pans and bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick entered into each cake layer comes out clean.
Allow cake layers to cool in pan for at least 15 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
Vanilla Buttercream and Topping
In a large bowl with an electric mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and 4 cups of powdered sugar until creamy.
8 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup 2 sticks unsalted butter
Add milk, vanilla, and salt until mixture is smooth and creamy.
½ cup milk, 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon salt
Gradually mix in additional powdered sugar until mixture reaches desired consistency. Add 1-2 drops of blue food coloring, if using. Frost cake as desired.
blue food coloring
To achieve speckled "robin's egg" look, stir together cocoa powder and vanilla extract in a small bowl. Dip a pastry brush in the mixture and, holding the pastry brush at least 8 inches away, gently flick pastry brush toward the frosted cake to create the speckle effect. Decorate cake with more mini eggs, if desired
Cake Flour Substitute: You can make a cake flour substitute for this mini eggs cake using all-purpose flour and cornstarch! Just use your kitchen scale to measure out 272g of all-purpose flour and sift it with 40 grams of cornstarch. Or if you don't have a kitchen scale, measure out 2.5 cups of flour using the spoon-and-level method, then remove 5 tablespoons of it and replace it with 5 tablespoons of cornstarch. Sift them together and add to your dry ingredients as usual!Buttermilk Substitute: If you don’t have buttermilk, feel free to use whole milk, replacing a tablespoon of the milk with vinegar. This will create the acidic effect of buttermilk to help your cake layers come out even more moist and tender.
