Just like a chocolate milkshake, only baked! A moist and fluffy cupcake flavoured with a hint of malt, topped with a cloud-like frosting – bake this weekend for an indulgent treat.
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk or buttermilk
1/4 cup malt powder (if you can’t find, crush 1/2 cup of Malteasers)
12 whole Malteasers
Chocolate malt frosting
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3 Tbs cocoa powder
2 Tbs malt powder
2-3 Tbs milk
2 cups icing sugar
1. For the cupcakes, preheat oven to 175C. Prepare a 12-cupcake pan with cupcake liners.
2. Mix all the ingredients in a mixer until smooth and free of lumps.
3. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack. Once cool, top with frosting.
4. For the frosting, combine all ingrediens in a mixer and blend until smooth and fluffy, about 4-5 minutes. Frost the cooled cupcakes, and top with a Malteaser and straw.
