Deep Fried Cadbury Eggs

Easter’s not really my thing.
I mean, I’m pretty religious and all– so I’m on board with that part.
But pastels? Not my fave.
Cadbury Cream Eggs? I could live without.
Carrot Cake? …you know how I feel about that.
All of that just amounts to: 
Easter? Meh. I’d rather not.
But if I have to endure this pastel-and-cotton-balls-inflicting holiday…
a little deep frying will be involved.
As previously mentioned– Cadbury Cream Eggs aren’t really my thing.
But as a dessert blogger, I kind of feel obliged to dabble in all of the major holiday dessert foods.
So into the fryer they went :)
I ate four of them.
And totally enjoyed it.
Turns out they’re kind of my thing after all.
PS- Cadbury Chocolate Eggs? Totally different story.
I don’t eat those. I inhale them.

Deep Fried Cadbury Eggs
  • 12 Mini Cadbury Cream Eggs
  • Approx. 4 c. vegetable or other oil for frying
  • 3/4 c. flour, divided
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a small sauce pan on stove until ready for frying (about 375º or 10 minutes).
  2. Mix together 1/2 c. flour, baking soda, salt, milk, vinegar, and oil.
  3. Unwrap Cadbury Eggs.
  4. Place 1/4 c. flour in a small bowl. Coat each of the eggs in the flour.
  5. Insert a toothpick* into one end of an egg. Dip it into the batter, tap excess off into bowl.
  6. Dip egg into the oil for a few seconds, holding the toothpick, before dropping the entire egg (and toothpick) into the oil.
  7. Using a slatted wooden spoon, rotate the egg so all sides are evenly fried to a golden brown. Use slatted spoon to remove onto paper towel layers for cooling.
  8. Repeat with all eggs. I suggest removing the saucepan from the heat for a minute in between each frying (just while you’re preparing the egg) to prevent the oil getting too hot. If it gets too hot, it will burn the outside, but you’ll have an unmelted and dough-y inside.
  9. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve warm.

*You don’t have to use the toothpick– I just think it’s easier!

    I deep fry a lot of things. I come from IN and at our State Fairs you can find anything deep fried. Deep Fried Oreos are good! Love this deep fried cadbury egg. I am going to get some today and try it.
    Would love to have you come join our link party, 3 blogs = 1 party.

    So. Awesome. I’ve never fried anything, but I really need to start. Sugar + Deep Fry = Better. What’s funny is that I’m totally into Easter – just for the cuteness. But I have not decorated my house yet…just made cute treats. :)

    I didn’t even know they made mini cream eggs. This looks good, but I am not sure I would ever actually do it myself. But if I saw them somewhere I would definitely taste them.

    Yay! To this day I’ve never had a Cadbury egg. I know, I’m crazy. We’re not Easter people, either, but I have to say, I think I’m turning a new leaf after this post…

    um, YUM! I have been looking for a recipe for batter for frying candy so thank you!

    Wowzer. And totally agree on the Cadbury Chocolate eggs. Someone please come stop me.

    Love this idea! I just learned how to deep fry safely and this recipe is a MUST TRY!

    Um WHAT?!?! These look AMAZING. Wow. I’m speechless.

  13. Mindie Hilton posted on March 26, 2012 at 11:06 pm (#)

    I would have never thought of deep frying one. To be honest not sure if I have had one, I think I have tried the ones with caramel in them, not sure if that counts as an Easter one. These sound dangerously good. Sorry you are not much for Easter, I am usually big on it, but I am slacking this year, don’t even have any decor up yet for the holiday.

  14. Sue posted on March 27, 2012 at 12:20 am (#)

    These must be amazing! Everything tastes better deep-fried, especially when chocolate is involved:)

    Hello deliciousness!!! OMG definitely going to have to do this…… soon!

  16. Jocelyn posted on March 27, 2012 at 11:39 am (#)

    I’m pretty sure deep fried anything is my thing!! I do love the cadbury eggs so I just know this is going to be the bomb!!! What an awesome and different way to enjoy them!!!

    Put these on a stick and you might make a MILLION dollars at the Minnesota state fair! How fun – I would definitely eat these and I am not a huge fan of the cadbury.
