After discovering that a Malteaser spread had been released, I knew I had to get my hands on it. The spread is called ‘Malteaser Teasers with malty crunchy pieces’ and it’s heaven in a jar. Cue Malteaser cupcakes…

Ingredients:

For the Cupcakes:

  • 6 oz/170g Sugar
  • 6 oz/170g Butter, room temp
  • 3 Eggs
  • 4oz/110g Self Raising Flour
  • 2oz/60g Cocoa Powder
  • Dash of milk

For the Filling

  • Half a jar of Malteaser spread

For the Icing:

  • 10oz/300g Icing Sugar
  • 3.5oz/100g Butter, room temp
  • 1.5oz/40g Cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp Milk
  • Half a jar of Malteaser spread
  • One box of Malteasers

Method:

    1. Preheat your oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4 and line a 12 hole tin with cupcake cases
    2. Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale.
    3. Beat in the eggs a little at a time.
    4. Sieve and fold in the flour and cocoa powder, adding a little milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency.
    5. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full.
    6. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until they bounce back when softly touched and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean.
    7. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
    8. For the buttercream icing, beat the butter in a large bowl until soft.
    9. Add half the icing sugar and beat until smooth. Then add the remaining icing sugar with one tablespoon of the milk, adding more milk if necessary, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
    10. Once the cupcakes are cool enough, scoop out a small section of cupcake from the centre of the top
    11. Fill the holes with the Malteaser spread
    12. Spoon the icing into a piping bag and pipe the icing using a spiralling motion onto the cup cakes in a large swirl. Alternatively, you can spoon the icing on top
    13. Top with Malteasers

After making these, I had a request for Nutella cupcakes. They follow the same style and recipe, you just have to trade out the Malteaser spread for Nutella/chocolate spread and swap the Malteasers for Ferro Rocher/other chocolates – I found a good dupe in a pound shop!
