Malteser Bunny Cupcakes

Serves 6


     1115g unsalted butter, softened
     115g caster sugar
     2 eggs, lightly beaten
     1 teaspoon vanilla extract
     115g self raising flour, sifted (take away 2 tablespoons and replace with Chocolate Malt powder)
     1 tablespoon milk

Chocolate buttercream (serves 12):

     150g unsalted butter, softened
     260g icing sugar
     50g plain chocolate

Mini Malteser bunnies.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a cupcake tray with cases.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Slowly add eggs, one spoon at a time, and lightly beat after each addition. Add the vanilla extract.
  • Using a metal spoon, gently fold in the sifted flour and chocolate malt, before adding the milk.
  • Divide evenly between the cases. Finely chop a few Malteser bunnies, or regular Maltesers, and poke into the cake mix in each case.
  • Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden.
  • Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in the microwave or in a ban marie.
  • Beat the icing sugar and butter together in a stand mixer and add the melted chocolate once slightly cooled.
  • Pipe onto cooled cupcakes and top with a Malteser bunny.
