Can I freeze Chocolate Creme Egg Cakes?

- Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a large bowl, whisk the sweetener and eggs until really frothy – this can take around 5 minutes.
- Sieve the self-raising flour and cocoa powder into the egg mixture and fold gently until mixed thoroughly.
- Spray the silicone moulds with low calorie cooking spray. Fill each of the egg moulds with the cake mix until they are around 3/4 full – this recipe makes 12 cakes. Place in the oven for 17 minutes until cooked through.
- Once cooked, pop out of the moulds and leave to cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, make the icing by stirring around 1.5 teaspoons of water into the icing sugar – it should be thick but runny enough to spread.
- Take 1 teaspoon of the icing and put into a separate small bowl with a couple of drops of yellow food colouring and mix well.
- Once the cakes are cool, use a teaspoon to create a little dip in each of the cakes. Place a little of the white icing into each dip being careful not to over fill. Drop a tiny bit of the yellow icing into the middle of the white icing to create the “yolk”. They’re ready to serve!
