Whether you're a seasoned baker or lockdown has been your first foray in the wonderful (and delicious) world of baking, you might have noticed that the country seems to have gone mad for all things flour-based.

But as fun as baking is, we’re not sure we can face making another banana bread and don’t get us started on a sourdough starter.

Luckily, Cadbury has come through for us all (when do they ever not?!) and launched a Creme Egg Cookbook packed full of sixty egg-citing sweet and savoury recipes.

We’ll just let that sink in for a moment...

There’s one recipe in particular that we predict we’ll be making for a long time to come: the Creme Egg Frying Pan cookies.

So simple, so gooey, so moreish.

And because we think sharing is caring, we’ve got a little sneak preview of the cookie recipe here, so that you can whip up a batch yourself as soon as you’ve finished reading.

How to make Creme Egg Frying Pan Cookies

Serves: 8

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


150g butter, softened

175g golden caster sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

250g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

3 crème eggs

Vanilla ice cream to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas 5

  2. Butter a 20cm oven proof frying pan or cast iron skillet – if you don’t have either you could use a 20cm shallow cake tin.

  3. Cream together the butter and sugar with a hand held whisk until pale and creamy, add the egg and vanilla extract and beat again.

  4. Fold in the flour and baking powder, chop the crème eggs into small pieces and fold into the cookie dough.

  5. Spoon the dough into the frying pan and smooth to the edges with a spoon then bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden.

  6. Leave to rest for 10 minutes before serving with scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Viola! Your very own Creme Egg Cookie. (Cadbury)
