Quirky, cute, sometimes controversial, always delicious recipes from Jessie Oleson.

Around Easter time, the culinary emphasis for dessert is on candy, not cakes. Here's a recipe designed to end this sweet segregation by uniting candy and cake in one delicious recipe: Cadbury Creme Egg in Hole Toast.

This sweet dish is inspired by the look of "egg in hole toast", a morning delicacy made by griddling a slice of bread with an egg tucked inside. Instead of bread, this Easter version is made with thick slices of pound cake, and Cadbury creme egg halves are used instead of, well, actual eggs. When heated on a griddle with plenty of butter, the fondant-filled eggs get nice and melty in the middle, making for an extra sweet surprise in the middle of your cake slice.

It's a fantastic way to have your cake and eat Easter treats, too.
