For those of you who know me, you'll have guessed I'm a bit of a Malteser addict. These are the most delicious cupcakes and once you've eaten one you'll immediately want another.
200g self raising flour 200g caster sugar 200g Margarine/Butter 1 Tbsp Ovaltine handful of crushed malteasers 4 eggs 1 tsp vanilla 3 tbsp milk Buttercream 600g icing sugar preheat the oven to 170 300g unsalted softened butter 3 tsp milk 30g Cocoa 1 Tbsp horlicks To finish 12 whole and 20 crushed malteasers Mix the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs slowly mixing between until well combined Fold in the flour, stir in the milk, vanilla, ovaltine and malteasers mix well to combine. Divide the mixture between 12 cupcake cases, I use an ice-cream scoop to get even cakes Bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Cool on a wire rack Mix together the buttercream ingredients together in a freestanding machine, whip until light and fluffy. (about 8 mins) Spoon into a piping bag and pipe swirls onto the cupcakes and top with a malteaser and crushed malteasers.
