Recipe: Mini Egg Chocolate Cake | FOOD

You can’t beat a classic chocolate cake for a spot of afternoon baking and I wanted to share my recipe for a mini egg chocolate cake. This is a perfect Easter recipe but you can decorate it with any chocolate you’ve got in the cupboard.

I made this a three tiered cake and just divided up the mix into three tins – I used the Wilton set of tins which are slightly smaller but with three tiers it gives the cake some good height. I sometimes find a large, wider cake a bit too overwhelming.
