Wow!  I came across this on Google Plus and just had to stop to read the recipe.  This looks like another Easter must!!

Prep time:  10 minutes
Cook time: 25-30 minutes
Serves: 20
Specialist equipment:  shallow 31x20cm tin

Ingredients:

175g unsalted butter, softened
175g caster sugar
3 eggs
150g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
50g Bournville Cocoa

Chocolate Icing:

150g Icing Sugar
25g Bournville Cocoa
5 Cadbury Creme Eggs, smashed up

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to Gas 4, 180 C, grease and line a 31x20cm shallow tin. 
2. In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the sifted flour, baking powder and cocoa and fold in.
3. Turn into the prepared tin, push into the corners and level out the  top.  Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes (test with a skewer, it should come out clean if cake is cooked).  Cool and place on a wire rack.
4. Sift the icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl and add a little water (few tsp) to make a spreadable icing.  Spread over the top of the cooled cake and top with smashed pieces of creme egg.
