A very naughty Malteaser Cake recipe!

Malteaser cake recipe via Toby & Roo :: daily inspiration for stylish parens and their kids.

Don’t worry, I’m not turning into a food blogger, though I have thought about setting up a food blog many times because I genuinely love cooking. I just seem to have a tonne of recipes at the moment that I really want to share with you all because they are so scrummy. This Malteaser cake recipe was the product of a very sweet Grandparent and toddler exchange this weekend between my mum and Toby who were equally impressed with their efforts! Not only was it easy enough for him to get involved with and make but it was super tasty and made a lovely winter pudding with some custard on an otherwise dull Monday evening.

I also think this would be a really tasty cake for Easter, something that we are starting to get more into now the kids are older and that we are looking forward to this year!


  • 175g butter
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 120g self-raising flour
  • 55g cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 medium eggs


  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 121g Malteasers

Preheat your oven to GM 4/180C and grease and line two 20cm sandwich tins.

Make the topping first so it can cool while the cakes cook. Crush the Malteasers in their bag with a rolling pin (remove a few first for decorating) transfer to a pan and add the milk. Melt over a low heat and and stir until smooth, then take off the heat and set aside.

In a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together then add one eggs and a tablespoon of the flour to stop it from splitting. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and blend then transfer to the sandwich tins and bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 mins. Allow to cool on a wire rack, then spread the Malteaser topping over one cake, place the other one on top and use the rest of the topping to cover. Decorate as you choose with the leftover Malteasers and devour.

If you do manage to keep any this makes a very tasty pudding cake with custard the following day (or for up to 3 days later).

    What happens to the other 2 eggs? Do they count as dry ingredients or should it be add the eggs not add one eggs?

    I think I could quite literally eat this entire cake right now, I’m craving chocolate so bad.

    Oh yum! Love malteasers. They’re the lighter way to enjoy chocolate so it’s not all bad right 😉

      Yeah I may have spoiled that for the purpose of the cake haha 🙂 xx
