I know it’s only the 27th of march and I’m a little early but at this point are we even surprised when it comes to me sharing new recipes for a special occasion early? I seem to always start sharing occasional bakes early these days but in my mind, I think to myself that at least you get time to bake them and enjoy them… Anyway, the special occasion I’m talking about today is Easter.
Oh yes, the time has come for the Easter bakes to begin and I’m so blooming excited to share the sweet treats I’ve made with you all. Saddle up guys, your about to enter a world of seriously good indulgent treats… WOOP WOOP!
I’m kick starting the Easter bakes with a good’en – two mini Bundt Cakes. This is a cake I’ve never actually made before but boy I’m glad I gave it a go because it’s turned out to be the perfect Easter cake to kick start the Easter season.
I saw a Easter Bundt Cake picture on Pinterest which completely sparked my imagination and got me wanting to create my own. After making this cake, I’ve come to realise that this cake will honestly make the perfect centre piece for your food table this Easter, the outcome is beautiful and i can guarantee it’ll catch peoples eye straight away. My family absolutely loved this and I think you guys will too.
So before I ramble on for any longer about how perfect this cake is, let’s get baking…
Category: Sweet Treats
Serves: Two Mini Bundt Cakes & 8 Slices Per Cake
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 50 Minutes
Decorating Time: 10 Minutes
Overall Time: 1Hour 10Minutes
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- 250g Of Butter / Stork
- 230g Of Caster Sugar
- 5 Medium Eggs
- 2tsp Of Vanilla Extract
- 350g Of Plain Flour
- 2.5tsp Of Baking Powder
- 125ml Of Whole Milk
Ingredients You Need To Decorate:
- 150g Of White Chocolate
- 150g Of Dark Chocolate
- 1 Bag Of Mini Eggs
How To Make Bundt Cake:
- Firstly, gather together your equipment and ingredients, grease and flour your bundt tin and preheat your oven to 190C / 170C Fan / Gas Mark 5.
- Secondly, in a large bowl, mix together the 350g of plain flour with the 2.5tsp of baking powder, then set aside.
- Next, in a large bowl using an electric whisk, cream together the 250g of butter, 230g of caster sugar and 2tsp of vanilla extract until light and fluffy in texture.
- Now, one at a time, beating between each addition, beat in the 5 eggs.
- On a low speed, add the flour, one third at a time, alternating with the milk, beating well after each addition until just combined.
- Pour half the batter into the bundt cake tin (if you’re making two mini cakes, half the mixture BUT if you’re making one large bundt cake, pour the entire batter into the tin).
- Place the tin into the oven and allow to cook for around 50 minutes until a skewer placed into the centre comes out clean.
- Once the cake has baked, take out the oven and allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool down completely.
- At this point, if you’re making two mini bundt cakes, re-grease and flour the tin and add the second half of the mixture into the tin and bake for the same amount of time.
How To Decorate Your Bundt Cake:
- Once your cake has completely cooled down, it’s time to decorate.
- Pour half a bag of mini eggs into a bowl and using the end of a rolling pin, press down on the eggs to break them into smaller pieces, then set aside.
- Now, chose whatever chocolate you want for either cake.
- Break the white chocolate into a microwavable jug, then place into the microwave and in 30 second blasts, melt the chocolate until nice and runny.
- Next, pour the white chocolate over the top of the bundt cake, allowing it to drizzle down the sides.
- Repeat these steps with the dark chocolate and pour over your second cake (TIP: dark chocolate is much thicker in consistency than white chocolate so it won’t be as runny but it will still give the same effect).
- Finally, sprinkle the smaller pieces of mini eggs all over the top of the bundt cake and finish by adding a few whole mini eggs to the top.
That’s your Mini Egg Bundt Cake prepared, baked, decorated and ready for you to eat!

Egg Bundit cake seems like a fun baking activity for the kids this Easter. I see you use castor sugar alot in your recipes. I used it in my culinary arts class in college, but can’t remember the look or taste. The eggs on top pays homage to the easter holidays. Elle, thank you for continuing to share such interesting sweet treats.
Ooo yes, the little ones would love making these as they are so simple to make and the outcome is absolutely delicious! Caster sugar is one of the most used sugars, I love using it in my cakes especially. These are a great Easter treat, aren’t they? Thank you so much Kevin, that means the world.

I love that you made two cakes; one with chocolate icing and one with vanilla! The color of the cakes is just right and the egg decorations draw my eye immediately. 🙂
These are the perfect sized cakes too. One batter made both so I thought I’d make them a little different from one another so they stood out. The mini eggs are the perfect Easter addition! Thank you so much for commenting Xo
I love a bundt cake, they always look more special. Although I do always worry about getting them out of the tin
They look amazing, don’t they? Something about a Bundt cake that always looks really complicated but really, they’re not! These just slid out the tin, it was really easy. Thank you so much for commenting Xo
