Mini Egg Tiffin

Mini Egg Tiffin

This fantastic no bake Easter cake comes courtesy of Jules over at The Butcher Baker Blog. Hubby has an unhealthy addiction to mini eggs so he was in heaven with this and the fact it can be made in 10 minutes is an added bonus (the downside is you have to wait for it to set!).

  1. This would be great to "cook" with children - I'm going to send it to my sister to try out with her little ones.

  2. "No Bake" always catches my eye.

  3. Snap! Made this very recipe myself the other day. None of it is still surviving though as it was inhaled by both of us in quick smart time! Good thing its so easy to make!

  4. Yes, I saw this on Chele's blog yesterday. Definitely an indulgence cake mmmm!

  5. I think this is addictive. I love the surprises when biting into this cake :D Best of all, it's so simple to make. I like it.

  6. Weirdly, my partner also has an unhealthy obsession with mini eggs! I think I'm going to have a go at this tomorrow if I get time! Thanks for the recipe!

  7. Heaven! I love mini eggs too. I made jelly bean Biscotti on Friday for the first time, which was rather nice but this I must try.

  9. This is fab Beth, love it...I have had to undo the top button of my jeans today - as they feel tight:)so maybe I will have to leave this to make next year! :) Happy Easter! x

  10. Is it possible to have an "unhealthy" addiction to cadbury's mini eggs?
    Lovely looking tiffin!

  11. Not even showing this to my husband with his cadbury mini egg addiction!

  12. So cute and tasty - my kids would gobble this right up.

  13. Mmmmmm, I bet this was popular :)

  14. This sounds scrummy. Those mini eggs are so moreish.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
