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.

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.

Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.

TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
