Mini Egg fridge cake recipe: Frequently asked questions
Can I make this recipe gluten-free? Is it suitable for Coeliacs?
It is gluten-free, though nobody would know just by tasting it – trust me!
Bear in mind that minimising cross-contamination is hugely important if you’re Coeliac or making this for someone who is. Here’s some tips from Coeliac UK on minimising the risk of cross contamination:
Also, make sure that all ingredients used don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients. Then make sure that they also don’t have a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten, wheat, rye, barley, oats (which aren’t gf), spelt and khorasan wheat (aka Kamut).
Here’s some more info from Coeliac UK on identifying safe gluten-free products.
Can I make your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe dairy free?
Yes, but of course, as Mini Eggs aren’t dairy-free – you’ll need a suitable substitute. So here’s all the swaps you’ll need to make to make this dairy-free:
- Instead of using milk/dark/white chocolate, use dairy-free milk/dark/white chocolate.
- Instead of using Mini Eggs, use dairy-free chocolate chips – feel free to use any Easter dairy-free chocolate too, if you can find any down the free from aisle.
- Instead of using butter, use a block of Stork hard margarine or any hard dairy-free butter alternative.
Can I make your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe vegan?
Yep, follow the advice to make this dairy-free, then you’ll just need to make one more simple swap – the marshmallows.
Fortunately you can easily buy gluten-free AND vegan marshmallows online from Amazon.
Can I make this recipe low FODMAP?
Sadly not due to the amount of golden syrup. Whilst lactose-free alternatives to chocolate are available, the amount of golden syrup is too high to be safe for the elimination phase of the diet.
Are Mini eggs gluten-free?
Yes, they are in the UK! They don’t have any gluten-containing ingredients or a ‘may contain’ warning for gluten.
Tap here to read the ingredients label for yourself – it never hurts to double-check! You’ll find them down the seasonal aisle in the supermarket.
Do I need any special equipment to bake your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe?
As I mentioned, you should definitely make this recipe by hand, so you certainly don’t need any crazy appliances or anything like that.
What you will need however is a 9″ square baking tin – here’s the one I use. Apart from that, you’ll just need a little baking paper too!
Does this recipe need xanthan gum?
You’ll see xanthan gum in a lot of my recipes as it’s an essential ingredient in gluten-free baking.
However, as this is a no-bake recipe, it’s not required.
Do I need weighing scales to bake your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe?
In short… yes, yes and yes! And I wouldn’t advise attempting any my recipes without them.
A lot of work went into fine tuning ratios and quantities and for me, baking is all about consistency and precision. I want you to make this recipe and for it to turn out EXACTLY like mine did.
For example, adding too much flour can make things dry and crumbly, whereas not adding enough sugar means it’ll lose its crisp exterior. I don’t want you to be disappointed, so please weigh your ingredients!
I’d recommending using digital cooking scales like these so you know you’re getting an accurate measurement and replicating my recipe as accurately as poss.
Can I make your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe with less sugar / without sugar?
You can feel free to reduce the amount of golden syrup a little, but bear in mind that it stops the melted chocolate from setting too hard. Not enough and it’ll be like biting into a rock!
How long can I keep your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe for?
I’ve kept them for about 4-5 days in an air-tight container with no problems. If you need to keep them any longer than that, I’d highly recommend freezing them (see advice below for doing that).
Can I freeze your Mini Egg fridge cake recipe?
Of course, just allow it to fully cool first! I’ve frozen them for up to 2-3 months no problem. Make sure you slice it up before freezing, then you can easily defrost a few slices at a time instead of the entire thing.
When you want to enjoy one, each slice should take around 3 hours to defrost at room temperature.
How can I tell when my Mini Eggs rice crispy squares are ready to cut?
Of course! I’ve frozen them for up to 2-3 months no problem. Slice them up before freezing – that way you can simply defrost slices as and when you need them.
Plus, they’ll thaw a lot quicker. When you want to eat one, each slice should take around 3 hours to defrost at room temperature. You’d never know they were frozen!
