Easter Cake Bars

On this page I’m sharing the recipe for Easter Cake Bars. These cake slices are decorated with chocolate Easter eggs and it’s a great sweet treat to serve during Easter.
By using a brownie tin instead of a cake tin, you get these flat cake bars. They’re easy to cut in squares and this way you’ve got more surface to decorate. So more buttercream per serving!

I decorated these Easter Cake Bars with chocolate Easter eggs, but not all chocolate eggs will give the same colorful effect. I used Dragee Easter eggs. That are chocolate eggs with a hard sugar coating. This way you can pick out chocolate eggs with nice colors for Easter. Otherwise you’d only have brown chocolate eggs on top.
I made these Easter cake bars even more colorful with a purple butter cream and sprinkles. Scroll down for the recipe of these Easter Cake Bars.

Recipe Easter Cake Bars

200 grams sugar
200 grams butter, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 eggs
200 grams flour
1.5 teaspoon baking powder
200 grams dragee Easter eggs

200 grams butter, room temperature
200 grams powdered sugar
2 tablespoons of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
A few drops of food coloring (I used purple)

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Grease a brownie tin. Chop the chocolate easter eggs in smaller pieces.
Put the sugar, butter and vanilla extract in a bowl and mix for 5 minutes until combined and airy. Add the eggs one by one, and mix well in between. Carefully spoon in the flour, baking powder and half of the chocolate eggs, so that the mixture stays airy. Spoon the batter into the brownie tin and bake for 60-70 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).

For the frosting, beat the butter until creamy. Add the powdered sugar 50 grams at a time and mix well in between. Add the milk, vanilla extract and food coloring and mix for 2 more minutes.

When the cake is done, let it cool in the brownie tin for a few minutes and then transfer it to a cooling rack.
When cooled, spread out the frosting on top of the cake bars. Decorate with the remaining chocolate easter eggs. Cut into squares.
