Kinder Egg Bundt Cake

Kinder Egg Bundt Cake
Kinder Eggs remind me of going to Brownies, back in the day when everyone was trying to collect the elusive 'Teeny Terrapins' from inside them. It was 1991 and there wasn't much else to do other than try not to set yourself on fire by moving too fast in your shell-suit, and gelling your fringe back with green gunk from a tub. We were convinced that we could tell a winning egg from its weight and general demeanour, whereas in actual fact, many of us still ended up with some pants plane which needed constructing from bits of plastic.

Fast forward to 2016... It was my friend's boyfriend's birthday, and he bloody loves a Kinder Egg, so it seemed a fitting challenge. Not content with decorating the cake with a full suite of Kinder products (note the Beunos and Hippos were deemed too cumbersome and binned off - by me), I decided that it was essential that the cake also tasted like 'Kinder'. You can get them in bar form these days, so I blitzed a few in the trusty Nutribullet, and stirred them into my mix. Magic.

This one was a pleasure to make, and got lots of attention in work before it was united with its owner!

  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g Homepride plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 bag of white chocolate chips
  • 200ml plain yoghurt 
  • 10 mini Kinder Egg chocolate bars - blitzed to crumbs in a Nutribullet, food processor, or cut up reeeaaal small
  • 8 Kinder mini chocolate eggs (optional)
  • I jar of chocolate spread - not the hazelnut type
  • A selection of Kinder products to decorate
Kinder Egg Bundt Cake
  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 c
  2. Prepare a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch with Cake Release spray and dust with flour. 
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and white chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the yoghurt into a jug.
  7. Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yoghurt. Repeat this until everything is combined. The chocolate chips will be left in the sieve - stir these into the mix. The flour prevents them from sinking. 
  8. Stir in the blitzed Kinder bars.
  9. Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
  10. Pour the cake mix into the prepared tin.
  11. Push in the Kinder mini eggs and cover with cake mix.
  12. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  13. Leave the cake to cool for ten minutes before removing from the tin.
  14. When the cake is fully cool, loosen the chocolate spread by warming it in the microwave, and tip over your cake.
  15. Decorate with assorted Kinder goodies!
