Easter Nest Cake Recipe

Several parents have asked me for the recipe for the Eatser nest cakes that we made on Thursday, so I thought I would put it on here for anyone who would like to make some more.


150g Cornflakes
100g Butter
1 heaped tbsp Cocoa powder
a good squirt of Golden Syrup
2 packets of Cadbury's Mini Eggs (other brands are available :-))

You will also need some paper cake cases.


Melt the butter in a large saucepan on a low heat.  Add a good squirt of golden syrup (about 6 tablespoons), or enough to ensure it binds the cornflakes together.  Then add the cocoa powder.  Stir together until it is a lovely dark chocolately brown colour.

Turn off the heat and gradually add the cornflakes.  Keep stirring until every cornflake is coated in the chocolate mixture.

Add about a tablespoon of the mixture to each paper case and top with 2-3 mini eggs before the mixture starts to set.  Put in the fridge to harden.

Makes about 30 cakes

Enjoy :-)
