Cadbury Creme Egg Foo Young: believe it or not, it's actually quite good.
Taking visual inspiration from the Chinese takeout staple, this trompe l'oeil sweet starts by frying pancakes studded with Cadbury Creme Egg pieces, which are then topped with melted peanut butter "gravy" and served atop a bed of rice pudding.
The pancakes, which do not require sugar for the batter, are plenty sweet owing to the Creme Eggs. The crispy edges and warm, soft, gooey interior of the pancakes are wonderful when paired with the creamy rice pudding, and the peanut butter "gravy" adds just enough savoriness to cut through the sweetness. It's a delicious dessert prospect—perhaps the only thing that is missing is a Cadbury Creme Egg Roll!
