  • 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


  • Grease and flour the cake tin to prevent sticking. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.
  • In the stand mixer, beat the softened butter until fluffy.
  • Add the sugar bit by bit and continue to beat until soft.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one.
  • Add the vanilla bean paste and mix well.
  • Measure the dry ingredients (flour, bicarb, pinch of salt) in another bowl. Add half into the mixer bowl. Then add half the yoghurt.
  • Repeat and add the remaining flour mixture and yoghurt. Mix gently to ensure it is well blended.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Bake for 60 minutes or until golden and a skewer comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes them remove from the bundt tin and leave to cool fully.
  • 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.
