I can't believe it's almost Easter - it's really early this year and seems to have snuck up on me. Last year I made Easter eggs with a twist - cake baked in real eggshells. This year, I made brownies and cupcakes. Guess I'd better start planning for next year! :)
I got this recipe from Jo's Blue Aga. Jo is the winner of 2011 Great British Bake Off and has really great recipes on her site. I remember seeing this last year and bookmarked it to try so here it is. It's a brownies recipe with mini eggs inside and on top. I put the mini eggs in the freezer as suggested but mine still cracked after baking :( My new oven is very hot so next time I might try baking at a lower temperature. The brownies were crisp and chocolatey and I loved the addition of the mini eggs.
I'm entering this to Calendar Cakes hosted by Laura from Laura loves Cakes and co-hosted by Rachel from Dolly Bakes. The theme this month is Easter Extravaganza.

I finally get to use my jar of vanilla sugar which has been in storage for months and smells heavenly.
