For the Sponge- 

  • 175g Unsalted Butter
  • 175g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Large Free Range Eggs
  • 175g Self Raising Flour
  • 25g Malt Drink Powder

For Decorating – 

  • 250g Maltesers


  1. Oven to 180C. Line a muffin tray with the baking cases.
  2. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat the eggs, one at a time. Whisk in the flour, cocoa powder, malt drink powder and milk until you have a batter.
  3. Evenly spread the batter between the baking cases, keeping the edges clean of batter.
  4. Bake for 15-18 mins until a skewer comes out clean. Cool for 10 mins before turning out on to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For the frosting. In a clean bowl, whisk the butter until soft and fluffy. Beat in the icing sugar and cocoa powder in stages. Add the milk if the frosting is too stiff. Transfer to a piping bag, snipping off the end.
  6. Pipe the frosting on the top of each of the cupcakes evenly. Top with as many Maltesers you can put on the top, eating the remaining – chef perks.
