Ingredients
  • 10 Asda Whole Cardamoms
  • 100g Asda White Chocolate
  • 175g butter, softened
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 small orange, finely grated zest of
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 75g dessicated coconut
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • For the icing:
    75g unsalted butter
  • 300g Asda White Chocolate
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • Asda Mini Eggs, to decorate
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 160C/140C Fan/Gas 3. Put 8 mini loaf cases on a baking tray. Split the cardamom pods and remove the seeds. Crush the seeds in a pestle and mortar or small bowl with the end of a rolling pin.

  • Break the chocolate into squares in a bowl. Put over a pan of simmering water until just melted, ensuring the base doesn't touch the water. Remove the bowl. Leave until the chocolate is cold but still liquid.

  • Beat the butter and caster sugar together. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then the zest and crushed seeds.

  • Gently stir in the flour, coconut and milk. Put in the cases and level the tops. Bake for 30 minutes or until the tops spring back. Cool.

  • For the icing, put the butter and chocolate in a bowl and melt as in step 2. Stir in the icing sugar and spread or pipe on top of the cake. Decorate with mini eggs.
