  • 3 teaspoons Baileys Irish Cream liqueur

Method

  • Step 1
    Preheat oven to 170C/150C fan forced. Grease base and side of a 22cm springform pan and line with baking paper.
  • Step 2
    Place chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of just simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Cook, stirring, until melted and smooth. Stir in the sugar. Remove from heat. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.

    To make the meringue topping, preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan forced. Place the egg white and sugar in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water (make sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water). Cook, whisking often, for 4 minutes or until frothy and sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and cool for 1 minute. Use electric beaters to whisk egg white mixture for 5 minutes or until thick and glossy. Whisk in chocolate on low until just combined. Spoon on top of cake and use the back of a spoon to make peaks. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until meringue is firm and crisp. Set aside to cool completely.

Ingredients

  • 250g butter, chopped
  • 180g white chocolate, chopped
  • 315g (1 1/2 cups) caster sugar
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 teaspoons finely grated orange or lemon zest
  • 225g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour
  • 75g (1/2 cup) self-raising flour

Topping

  • 360g white chocolate, chopped
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 800g chocolate Mini Eggs

Method

  • Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 150C/130C fan forced. Grease a 20cm cake pan and line the base and side with baking paper.
  • Step 2
    Place the butter, chocolate, sugar and milk in a saucepan and stir over medium-low heat until the butter and chocolate have melted and the sugar has dissolved. Transfer mixture to a large bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  • Step 3
    Use a balloon whisk to whisk the eggs and zest into the chocolate mixture. Sift the flours over the mixture and use the whisk to gently fold through. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Cover loosely with a sheet of foil for the last 30 minutes of baking.
  • Step 4
    Cool in the pan for 30 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack. Quickly invert the cake so it is top-side up. Set aside to cool completely.
  • Step 5
    For the cake topping, combine the chocolate and cream in a heatproof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water (don’t let the base of the bowl touch the water). Heat, stirring occasionally, for 3-5 minutes or until the chocolate is almost melted. Remove from the heat and set aside for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has completely melted. Stir to combine.
  • Step 6
    Place chocolate mixture in the fridge for 1 – 1.5 hours, stirring occasionally, or until the mixture is cold and has the consistency of custard. Use electric beaters to beat until mixture resembles softly whipped cream (don’t overbeat as it may curdle).
  • Step 7
    Use a serrated knife to cut the cake in half horizontally. Place the base on a serving plate. Spread with 1/3 cup of the topping mixture. Replace top and spread all over with remaining topping. Arrange Mini Eggs all over the cake. Serve immediately (see tip).
