Malteser Cake Instructions -:
- Preheat oven to 160C or 320F
- Grease a 20cm round cake pan with butter or a light cooking spray. Be sure to line the sides and the base of your pan with a good baking paper.
- In a microwave-safe bowl combine your butter, milk and brown sugar and cook on high. Be sure to stir every minute for around 4-5 minutes. You want the butter to be melted and the mixture to be a nice smooth texture.
- Grab your whisk and combine your cocoa powder and flour into your butter mixture. Next whisk in your eggs. Now it’s ready to pour into your round pan. You will bake for 55 minutes. Be sure to test with a skewer at intervals. When you skewer comes out clean, you know your cake is ready. Do not overcook.
- Let your cake cool for a few minutes prior to popping on a wire rack. You want your cake to completely cool.
Chocolate Ganache Frosting Recipe
You will need to place the chocolate, cream and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. You will cook on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Again, you should keep your eye on things, ensuring you stir every minute and you want a nice smooth mixture.
Beat your extra butter with a Barmix or electric beater until it has a pale and creamy appearance. Next add your malted milk powder, icing sugar and the extra tablespoon of milk. You want a nice fluffy texture. At this point beat in one and a half tablespoons of ganache.
With the remainder of your ganache, leave it to one side for around 90 minutes. It should be thick and glossy but most importantly spreadable. This is very important!
You will now need to cut your cake horizontally into four layers. It’s suggested that you use a serrated knife for this step. Pop your cake base on a platter. Divide up your frosting evenly in thirds. Use one third per layer as you layer the cake and finish with a layer of cake. It’s now into the fridge for 90 minutes to chill.
The final step is to spread the ganache nice and evenly over the entire cake. Pay special attention to the top and side of the cake. Next, decorate with Maltesers working from the center out to the edges. You can make all sorts of fun patterns and introduce White Maltesers too if you like!
