While going through pattern magazines the other day I found this page with sweet, good looking easter recipes. While I´m the person to bake big fancy cakes (we´re just two, who´s supposed to eat all that?) I love to make cookies and muffins and stuff like that. So when I saw the little easter eggs made of sponge cake at the top it was love at 2nd sight (or worse. I don´t know how often I have ignored these cuties before.) The recipe states to do them just before easter so that they don´t become to dry. That means I haven´t made them yet. But they sound great and simple to make. And there´s two more recipes on this page so there´s something in it for everyone ;)
Here´s a rough translation for you:
Ingredients: 3 eggs, 250 g flour, 125 g sugar, 1/2 sachet of baking powder
1. Beat eggs with sugar for 30 minutes until fluffy (look, the recipe even has a fitness program included!)
2. Add flour and baking powder
3. With your hands form little eggs, put them on a baking tray and bake them in the oven until they are golden yellow
4. Heat one part chocolate powder, two parts sugar and a little water until it becomes a really hot sticky icing. Use it instantly to ice the eggs. (I´ll use couverture.)
Seems simple. I´ll make them on friday and will report! Hopefully with pictures.
