Cadbury Creme Scrambled Eggs for Serious Eats

It's a simple enough question: What would happen if you scrambled Cadbury Creme Eggs as if they were regular eggs?

Well, I recently found out the answer by testing it in my own kitchen. Now, the results may not be surprising: what you get is a big, buttery glob of chocolaty goo. I experimented a little bit more, by adding some heavy cream and whisking vigorously before scrambling, and while I wasn't able to avoid the ugly factor, at least this version had a little more substance and shape. The taste of the eggs is not exceptional on its own (it tastes like a Creme Egg melted in butter and cream), but it's rather good when put on top of "potatoes" made from diced day-old doughnuts that have been fried in butter and "toast with jam" made from pound cake.

Conclusion? In the future I may stick to regular eggs for scrambling—but it was a valuable lesson to learn that melted Cadbury Creme Eggs taste delicious on top of pound cake!

Creme de la Creme Egg: A Collection of Sweet Cadbury Creme Egg Posts

It's the most wonderful time of year, when Cadbury Creme Eggs proliferate in grocery and drugstores, like little sugarbombs waiting to be hatched in your mouth.

And to celebrate, I want to list a batch of my favorite posts (from my site and others) dedicated to the magical Creme Egg. You're welcome.

Egg-stra Special: Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict for Serious Eats

Eggs Benedict is like pleasure overload: savory little stacks of delicious excess, topped with a crowning glory of Hollandaise.

But could this brunch classic be recreated in a totally sweet form?

You bet your bottom silver dollar pancake. It's time to say hello to a new classic: Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict. It combines all of the excess of the savory dish, but in completely sweet form, comprised of stacks made of doughnut, brownie, melty Creme Eggs (complete with oozing yolk!), and a topping of rich frosting, all accompanied by a mound of fried pound cake to give the effect of side potatoes.

It's a sweet egg-stravaganza.

  • 2 Cadbury creme eggs
  • 1 plain cake doughnut
  • 1 brownie, the fudgier the better
  • 1 large slice pound cake, cut into small cubes
  • 1 tablespoon butter, such as Challenge Butter
  • Red sugar sprinkles, to garnish

Prepare your plate. Slice your doughnut in half; place the halves, cut side up, side by side on your plate.

Cut your brownie in half, the way that you would slice a bagel (so that you have two fully sized but thin brownie pieces). Either cut or shape each piece into a circle so that it is slightly smaller in circumference than the doughnut halves. Place the circles on top of the doughnut halves.

Prepare the Creme Eggs. The idea here is to get them lightly melty, but not so much that the yolk oozes out. I found that the best way to do this was to either put them on a sheet of aluminum foil atop a baking sheet and put them in either a toaster oven on high or a preheated moderate oven for about a minute. As soon as the tops of the chocolate eggs starts to get a bit shiny, remove them from heat, and very carefully (so as to not puncture the chocolate and let the yolk ooze out) transfer each egg to the top of your two prepared brownie and doughnut stacks. Top with lightly melty frosting.

Sprinkle each finished stack with red sugar sprinkles; serve immediately.
