If you’re a fan of Maltesers, you’ll love this cake! The chocolate sponge is slightly fudgy with a subtle hint of malt and the filling is a gloriously smooth and creamy white chocolate malt ganache, the perfect malty centre. To top off everything, a beautiful silky chocolate and malt Swiss meringue buttercream covers this lovely cake!
If you’ve never made Swiss meringue buttercream before it may seem like a daunting task, but we’ve added as many tips and details as possible so you’ll be a buttercream master chef! Of course, there’s nothing stopping you from using a basic buttercream, if you fancy, but we would recommend using less icing sugar in the recipe as the malt powder is already sweetened. We’ve used Horlicks in this recipe, but any suitable malt milk powder will do.
