Chocolate Malteser Cake

Chocolate Malteser Cake

A fun birthday cake for children, this crunchy chocolate delight requires two 18cm sandwich cake tins and a bag of Maltesers – so best to hide them before baking, as they won’t last long otherwise! Don’t worry if the cakes crack a little on the surface, as they will be covered with the chocolate icing anyway.


  • 250g self raising flour
  • 250g soft brown sugar
  • 50 g cocoa powder
  • 250 g plain chocolate, 70% cocoa solids
  • 250g butter
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • For the icing: 400g plain or milk chocolate
  • 284ml pot single cream
  • 25g butter
  • 100-200g icing sugar 
  • 175g pouch of Maltesers
  • You will need 2 x 18cm sandwich cake tins

Preparation method

  1. Heat the oven 160ºC conventional (shelf below centre), fan oven 150ºC, gas mark 3 (centre shelf). Base line the cake tins with greaseproof paper.
  2. Sieve the flour, sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
  3. Melt the chocolate and butter with 200ml of water in a pan, gently.
  4. Add to the flour with the eggs. Mix well.
  5. Pour into the prepared tins and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. They may crack a little on the surface.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tins and then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool fully.
  7. To make the icing: melt the chocolate with the cream and butter until smooth. Allow to cool until it is spreadable and beat in enough icing sugar to make the mixture stiff.
