Malteser Cake

Finally! I've baked it! Malteser Cake! I've been planning to make this cake for quite sometime now, I've been so busy with work I haven't been baking lately. Last Sunday morning, I woke up early and dedicate myself in making this cake. I found the recipe in Nigella Lawson's Book aptly called "Nigella Feast".

What made me decide to try this cake is because it has Malteser's on it, which I sooo love! The recipe called for malt powder and I have no idea where I can find that I've seach supermakets around Metro Manila I can't find them. So decidedly I use ovaltines, a chocolate malt drink (hey it has malt in it!). Its an easy cake to make even the frosting is quite a breeze to make. Though I have to tweak the recipe a bit to suit my family's taste I find the frosting too sweet even though I have already reduce the sugar the recipe calls for. The cake itself is a bit dry and I like moist cakes and more importantly I can't taste the malt! So it's not yet a Malteser Cake.....Hmmmm..... I better find some soon to try this recipe again...


I'm a nine to five pencil pusher who loves to play with flour and paper during my free time. Dreams of going to Europe and eat croissants and make pastries all day long!
