Malteser MaltEaster Bunny & Mini Egg Chocolate Cake

This beautiful Malteser MaltEaster Bunny & Mini Egg Chocolate Cake is very easy to make and perfect for anyone who loves Easter and the chocolates that come with it! 

It always irks me how as soon as Boxing Day has passed, you can buy Easter eggs in the shops! Now don’t get me wrong, I love eating a chocolate egg as much as the next chocolate egg eating person, BUT I do feel selling them straight after Christmas is just too early.
My favourite little easter treats are mini eggs. They are so scrumptious and pretty and easy to eat! I have made a few recipes now which include them (see the bottom of this post for some), and the other week I decided to make another cake incorporating them and, hence, this Malteser MaltEaster Bunny & Mini Egg Chocolate Cake was created.

I thought that I could make a chocolate cake which had the Malteser bunnies, big ones and baby ones, around the outside, a bit like those kitkat or chocolate fingers cakes.

  • 200g unsalted butter
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 160g self raising flour
  • 40g cocoa powder
  • 250g full fat cream cheese
  • 1 x 400g jar of chocolate spread (I used the Tesco value one)
  • 10 large Malteser Malteaster chocolate easter bunnies
  • 10 mini Malteser Malteaster chocolate easter bunnies
  • 1 x 328g bag of Cadburys mini eggs
  • 1 x 90g bag of Tesco micro chocolate eggs

  1. pre heat the oven to 180oC / 160oC (fan)
  2. grease and line 2 x 8 inch sandwich tins
  3. cream the butter and sugar together for about 5 minutes until pale and soft
  4. add the eggs and a spoonful of the flour and beat for a few more minutes
  5. fold in the remaining flour and the cocoa powder
  6. divide the batter between the two tins and then cook in the oven for 22-25 minutes approx
  7. leave the cakes to cool
  8. once the sponges are cold to the touch, make your frosting by beating the cream cheese and chocolate spread together
  9. sandwich the two sponges together with some of the frosting
  10. then cover the cake with the remaining frosting
  11. take your chocolate bunnies, and stick around the side of the cake alternating between a big and a small bunny
  12. then once this has been done, carefully pour/add the eggs onto the top of the cake
  13. serve and enjoy 🙂
