Malteaser Bundt Cake

Malteaser Bundt Cake
I fancied baking again this morning, but had no idea what to make. I put it out to Facebook. Someone mentioned Malteasers, and it was a done deal. It's been on my mind ever since I saw the Malteaser spread in Tesco. Had to be done.

This uses my basic moist chocolate cake recipe, but is 'thugged up' a little with the addition of almost every Malteaser themed product out there! The spread has lovely little malty spheres in it, which once my OCD had calmed itself, made a lovely topping. This will go down an absolute dream at work tomorrow...

  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 310g plain flour
  • 40g good quality cocoa powder
  • 1 sachet of Malteaser hot chocolate drink mix (powder)
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 250ml vanilla yoghurt 
  • 100ml chocolate milk
  • 50g crushed Maltesers
  • Jar of Malteaser spread 
  • Malteasers to decorate (the rest of a large bag)

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 c
  2. Prepare a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch with Cake Release spray and dust with flour.
  3. Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. 
  5. Add the extract.
  6. In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, cocoa, Malteaser powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
  7. Pour the yoghurt and chocolate milk into a jug.
  8. Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yoghurt mix. Repeat this until everything is combined.
  9. Stir in the crushed Maltesers.
  10. Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
  11. Pour the mix into your prepared tin. 
  12. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. 
  13. Leave the cake to cool for ten minutes before removing from the tin.
  14. When the cake is fully cool, pop the Malteaser spread into a jug and heat in the microwave for around 20 seconds to loosen it. Tip over your cake and decorate with yet more Maltesers!

  1. I thinki i need to bake one of these ... I just LURVE maltesers .. but oh the dilemma, whether to make one of these or a Bourbon bundt ... or a choc honeycomb .. or a custard cream ... I think all this tempting biscuity bundt-ness should be outlawed lol!

  2. Hello could you please tell me how many grams are in the sachet?? My local stores only have the jar of it so if you could tell me a sachet size that would be great :)

  3. Hello! Would I be ok putting the topping on now if its not going to be eaten til Thursday??

    1. Ideally I'd only bake this the day before, and only ice it on the day, or the night before at the earliest x

  4. Thank you for this wonderful recipe !!!

    I had to go to Lakeland & buy the tin when I found it on Pinterest as it looked amazing.

    I made it yesterday adding some malteser bunnys as well as the normal ones for the topping, I was so pleased that it looked as good as yours & it was delicious, everyone enjoyed it, it may well become my 'go-to' cake for everyone's birthdays (shame I can't add a photo).

    1. Oh lovely! You could always send me a pic on Twitter if you're on. Try some of my other recipes too X

    2. Sorry I'm not on Twitter, your other bundt cakes looks amazing, I will certainly be trying a few of them, thanks x

  5. Holy cow, made this today and it was incredible. Everyone loved it, even my extremely fussy mother had seconds. Thanks for the great recipe!
