Our Chocolate Malt Cake with crispy Maltesers is an original eye-catcher

While it's true that every chocolate cake tastes great, this latest culinary invention from the Scrumdiddlyumptious kitchen has something extra special. For its eye-catching design, we've taken our delicious cake to another level by covering it in Maltesers. Take a look for yourself...

You'll need:

For the dough:

  • 1⅓ cups flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup Ovaltine
  • ⅗ cup sugar
  • 1 dash baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 6.7 oz soft butter

For the butter cream:

  • 5.3 oz soft butter
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2.8 oz milk chocolate couverture

For the ganache:

  • 5.3 oz chopped up dark chocolate couverture
  • 5 fl oz warm cream

For the finishing touch:

  • 3 packets of Maltesers

Here's how:

  1. Add all of the ingredients for the dough to a bowl and mix them using an electric whisk.
  2. Add the dough mix to a small springform cake pan and bake it at 350°F for 35 minutes.
  3. To prepare the buttercream, first whisk the butter and icing sugar before adding the milk chocolate couverture.
  4. To prepare the ganache, pour warm cream onto the pieces of dark chocolate couverture and stir the ingredients until the chocolate has completely melted. If you leave the mix for several minutes before stirring, the chocolate should already be almost fully melted.
  5. Remove the baked, cooled cake from the springform pan and cut it into two pieces horizontally. Next, spread all of the buttercream on top of the cake base before crowning it with the top half. Then cover the outside of the cake with the ganache.
  6. To finish, decorate the cake by pressing Maltesers into the ganache until it's completely covered.

Wow! The attractive Malteser design really gives this tasty treat a stunning finish. Whether it's for a birthday surprise or coffee with friends, our Chocolate Malt Cake is sure to get mouths watering!
