Cadbury creme egg chocolate lava cakes are a chocolate lovers dream. Rich chocolate cake with a molten center of a cadbury cream egg. Your Easter dessert just took a left turn.
That left turn is a good, nay a GREAT thing. Because if you’re a fan of chocolate lava cakes, I took them up a level by adding an Easter twist on it and popped Cadbury creme egg in the center and baked them. That’s a warm molten creme egg! In the middle of a chocolate cake! I know! I’m excited too! (I’ll stop the exclamations).
When I got to the store to buy the creme eggs, to my delight I see they now have caramel eggs in addition to the regular eggs. Where have I been? I clearly need to get out more. I bought both because chocolate and caramel are my 2 favorite dessert items.
This could be your new family Easter dessert. With its impressive presentation, people will think they were made by a pastry chef.
- Non stick cooking spray
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 8 tablespoons /1 stick unsalted butter

To a mixing bowl or stand mixer add the eggs, egg yolks and sugar. Beat on low speed for 1 minute then faster speed for 2 minutes until pale and fluffed.
Pour the melted butter and chocolate slowly into the egg mix while whisking.
Add the flour and in small batches, whisking in-between additions, until well combined. Stir in the espresso powder.
Fill the molds half full and place a creme egg in the center. Fill the molds so they mix covers the eggs.

To remove from the mold, turn onto a serving plate and serve immediately.
