An Easter Egg bundt.

I’m new to this bundt game. I have friends who love them but the tins are expensive and when i saw them in the US at a sensible price I couldn’t get them home for frear of racking up a huge amount of excess luggage fees. So, when I saw this beautiful tin in the sale at Lakeland I was able to treat myself.

I am now in love. The tin produced this most beautiful cake. I used a marbled bundt recipe from BBC Good Food and it was obviously for a slightly smaller tin than the one I have but nevertheless it it is a start. I shall now get on with creating some recipes of my own.

As I had also been sent a selection of Easter goodies to try by Sainsburys I used the Taste the Difference Swiss chocolate mini eggs in milk, dark and white chocolate to decorate the cake. . When looking up the price just now I discover they are on offer at two bags for £3. Bargain! I toyed with leaving them wrapped as they are lovely pastel foils but the teen rightly said that you’d want to eat the cake not pfaff with unwrapping the eggs!

The bundt was drizzled with a very simple glace icing and then the unwrapped solid eggs, milk, dark and white chocolate, were popped into the niches in the cakes surface. the hardening glace icing held the eggs in place

Iced and egged.

I do wish we could set up some kind of bundt tin lending library, then we could try all the different shapes without either taking out a mortgage to buy them or find cupboard space when we do succumb. I am very fearful this is the first tin of many!
