Ingredients & Equipment Used In This Recipe

While most ingredients can be bought in grocery stores, for your convenience, any specialized or notable ingredients and equipment needed for this recipe have been linked to Amazon or other stores if available online.

It may not include staple ingredients such as oil, salt, sugar, etc., as you’re likely to have those in your kitchen. The complete list of ingredients with measurements is found in the recipe card.

  • Light Brown Sugar
  • Cake FlourThis is a finely milled flour that has a lower protein content, less gluten, and is lighter and softer than all-purpose flour. You can make your own cake flour by measuring 1 leveled cup of all-purpose (plain flour), removing 2 tablespoons, and then adding 2 tablespoons of cornstarch (cornflour). Sift well before using.
  • All-Purpose Flour also known as Plain Flour.
  • Cornstarchalso known as Cornflour.
  • Baking Sodaalso known as Bicarbonate of Soda.
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Cadbury Mini Eggs or any brand of chocolate mini eggs.

Recipes on The Purple Pumpkin Blog use both cup measurements and/or weighted measurements. American cups and kitchen food scales are handy pieces of equipment to have in your kitchen as it means you’ll be able to make all of the different recipes on my blog. I try to give American, imperial, and metric measurements in my recipes. Please note, you can mix cup measurements with weighted measures, but never mix imperial (pounds, ounces, pints, etc.,) with metric (kilograms, grams, litres, etc.,).
