Mini Egg Bundt Cake Recipe

Mini Egg Bundt Cake Recipe

With my children’s birthdays in February and March I get the chance to make big birthday cakes, and this year for my oldest daughter I made this Mini Egg Bundt Cake. It is decorated very simply with mini eggs on top plus purple and yellow icing, and also has purple swirls marbled inside, so is really easy to finish off once the cake is baked. It would make a great Easter centrepiece as well as being ideal for birthdays around Easter time!

These are actually micro eggs rather than Mini Eggs as that was what I had to hand – Tesco does micro mini eggs which are just the same but smaller than the standard mini eggs. Picking up the colours of the eggs in some vibrant water icing makes this a pastel-lovers dream! As you can see, I’ve made this cake using a Nordicware elegant heart bundt tin, they make a beautiful shaped cake with lovely detail. See below to order yourself one from Amazon.

While it may seem daunting to make such a large cake, it is really quite simple as you only need to use one tin, there is no splitting the mixture between tins needed, and the tin itself shapes the cake so you don’t need to worry about levelling the cake or anything like that. I’ve made cakes using this type of tin before and as long as you make sure you have the right quantities to use so that the tin is full enough and doesn’t overflow, you will be fine. To do this, make sure the recipe you are using for your cake is for the same size tin, otherwise you might need to increase the quantities.

I’ve baked in this tin before and in the past have found the cake dry due to the shape of the tin which has some very thin areas, so this time I’ve used my favourite 0% fat Greek yoghurt in the recipe (I loosely followed quantities from and adapted this bundt cake recipe) to keep it moist. You could use any type of Greek yoghurt, it doesn’t need to be 0% fat, that was just what I had in the fridge. Yoghurt makes cakes lovely and moist, you’ll find several in my archives.

As for what equipment you need to make this recipe, well a good Nordicware bundt tin is a must, and then a good mixer is also useful when making a larger amount of cake batter than normal. These are what I used (note that these are affiliate links and I make a few pennies if you buy using the links, at no extra cost to you):

Course: Baking
Author: bakingqueen74
Ingredients
  • 225 g butter unsalted, softened
  • 350 g caster sugar white
  • 4 free-range eggs medium
  • 350 g plain flour
  • 250 ml 0% fat Greek yoghurt (1 cup)
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • purple gel food colour
For the icing:
  • 100 g icing sugar approx
  • water
  • purple and yellow gel food colours
Instructions
  1. Grease and flour the cake tin to prevent sticking. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.

  2. In the stand mixer, beat the softened butter until fluffy.

  3. Add the sugar bit by bit and continue to beat until soft.

  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.

  5. Add the vanilla bean paste and mix well.

  6. Measure the dry ingredients (flour, bicarb, pinch of salt) in another bowl. Add half into the mixer bowl. Then add half the yoghurt.

  7. Repeat and add the remaining flour mixture and yoghurt. Mix gently to ensure it is well blended.

  8. Take about a third of the cake batter and place in another bowl, then add a small amount of purple gel colour, to your desired shade, and mix well.

  9. Spoon the plain and purple cake batter alternately into the tin until all used up. Take a knife or skewer and marble the colours together.

  10. Bake for 60 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean.

  11. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes them remove from the bundt tin and leave to cool fully.

  12. In a couple of small bowls make the icing: mix approx 1 tsp of water with enough icing sugar to make a paste. Make sure it is not too runny. Colour as desired using the gel food colours. Drizzle over the cooled cake then decorate with Mini Eggs.

I’m a Bundt tin fan and this cake is so pretty. I’ve used the micro eggs in a couple of bakes and really like them.
