Author: Grace Hall


  • 115 g Stork tub
  • 115 g caster sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 115 g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 40 g Stork tub
  • 3 tbs golden syrup
  • 6 tbs drinking chocolate powder
  • 18 tbs cornflakes or branflakes
  • 1 ½ bags Cadbury mini eggs


  • Preheat your oven to 190°C (Gas mark 5/375°F).  Line a muffin tin with 12 silicone cups or paper muffin cases.
  • Measure out your cake ingredients into a large bowl, cracking the eggs and sifting the flour and baking powder as you go.  Beat until well mixed, then divide the mixture between the 12 muffin cases.
  • Bake cakes in the oven for 15-20 minutes until golden and springy to touch.  Leave to cool on a wire rack.
  • Once cool, prepare the chocolate nest topping.  Gently melt the stork and golden syrup together then stir in the chocolate powder until completely combined.  Add the cornflakes and gently stir until they are fully coated in the chocolate mixture.
  • Place a tablespoon of the mixture on the top of each cupcake and arrange in a nest shape.  Finish off with the mini eggs (I added three to each nest) and leave to set.
