Malteser Cupcakes

 Every year when The Great British Bake Off hits the TV screens it immediately makes me want to bake again plus I absolutely love baking when its cosy inside and the weather is dismal outside which  is exactly what it is like in the UK at the moment and I'm not complaining! These cupcakes are possibly the easiest things to make with an all in one method and none of the toppings need to be made!


For the cake:
 175g Butter
150g Caster Sugar
1tbsp Golden Syrup
2 Eggs
5 tbsp Milk
150g Self Raising Flour
25g Cocoa Powder

Malteser Chocolate Spread
1 Bag of Maltesers


Preheat the oven to 180°c

I started making the cupcakes by measuring all the cake ingredients (Thats everything but the maltesers and spread) into one big bowl and mixed them all together into a lump free, glossy consistency. 

TOP TIP: Make sure to sieve the cocoa powder and flour otherwise it can be grainy!  

Then the mix is done told you it was easy!!

I then spooned the mixture into 12 cupcake cases making sure each case had an equal quantity in.

Depending on the oven they take around 30 - 35 minutes to bake. 

Once cooled, I used 1 tea spoon of Malteser Chocolate spread  to decorate the tops and spread using the back of the teaspoon. It really doesn't have to be perfect!

I then chopped each malteser into half - again can't be perfect as some crumbled quite a bit but that adds to the effect! - I then placed two maltesers onto the top of each cake.

Finally... Enjoy!

Let me know if you try making these yummy scrummy cupcakes!
