Easter cake baking is one of the great pleasures of the Easter holidays and whether you bake in the lead up to Easter, or if you're finding ways to use up leftover chocolates, then our mini egg recipes are our go-to's for delicious treats every time.

There's something about the pretty pastel colours that instantly transforms an easy chocolate cake into a dessert fit for the Easter table and bring an instant spring-like feel with it. Keep scrolling for our best mini egg recipes for 2024.

Mini eggs also make perfect additions to no-bake Easter treats including Easter bark - which is simply melted chocolate studded with mini eggs and broken up into chunks once cooled (it makes a really thoughtful Easter gift FYI).

They can also be the crowning glory of a simple cornflake cake (the easiest of all Easter recipes) and decorate the top of this simple refrigerator wreath cake.

One of our absolute favourite recipes to make at Easter is our speckled Easter egg cupcakes. Not only are they topped with mini eggs but the pastel green icing is flecked with a mixture of cocoa powder and water to look like the delicate shell of an egg. It's much easier than you might thing and looks spectacular if you're looking to impress your guests, or want a baking challenge for yourself.

Having an easy cookie recipe is always a good idea if you're having friends or family coming around and we particularly love these mini egg cookies. Think of them as a deconstructed cornflake cake with an extra crunch from the cereal and they have that perfect thin, crispy and chewy texture we love.

A real showstopper is our Easter cake, topped with mini eggs, and with pastel icing in pinks, greens and yellows - artfully smudged to create a stunning impression. Trust us. It's much easier than it looks and we've also filmed a video to show you how to get started.

Get baking and Happy Easter!
