Malted Chocolate Tray Bake

Updated: Jun 18

Everyone that knows me will be aware that I love Maltesers and Horlicks so a quick bake that uses both is a must for me!



I made an all in one chocolate traybake topped with malted milk icing and topped with Maltesers.


This really is my ideal quick bake! It certainly doesn’t last long in my house.



Preheat oven and line a 9 x 9inch or 23 x 23cm cake tin with baking parchment. Available on Amazon


Put the Stork, caster sugar, SR flour, eggs and cocoa powder into the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on a medium speed until the ingredients are creamy and fully combined.



Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.



Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.


While the cake is cooling make the icing. Sieve the icing sugar and malted milk powder into the bowl of a stand mixer with the butter. Whisk until light and fluffy then add enough milk so it is soft enough to pipe.


Put the icing in an icing bag fitted with a Wilton 1M star nozzle. Starting at the left and going from left to right pipe the buttercream until the cake is covered.


Decorate with the Maltesers then leave to set before cutting into squares.
