Malteser Traybake

I bloody love Maltesers guys. I think they are one of the most underrated chocolates in existence, and in all seriousness, I only just found out that you can't get Maltesers everywhere. Like apparently they don't exist in the US?! Anyways my flatmate uploaded a recipe for a Biscoff Trayback (take a look at her fabulous instagram @Tablegrams and give it a follow) and thought I'd try it out with Maltesers and switch up her original recipe which can be found here. This recipe makes 12 generous large pieces. 


The Sponge:
240g Softened Salted Butter
40g Caster Sugar
120g Soft Brown Sugar
80g Condensed Milk
1tsp Vanilla Extract
4 Large Free-Range Eggs
80g Dark Chocolate (preferably 70-80%)
2 tbs Boiling Water
30g Cocoa Powder
255g Self Raising Flour
100g Malteser Chocolate (or 5 tbsp Malteser Spread) 

The Frosting:

100g Softened Salted Butter
250g Icing Sugar (Sieved)
2tbs Nutella/Chocolate Spread
1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
2 tbsp Milk 
1 bag of Maltesers 


1. Preheat your oven at 180 degrees and butter and flour your baking tin to grease it

2. Cream together your butter, sugar and condensed milk together either with a hand whisk or stand mixer until it is light in colour and fluffy

3. Add the eggs and vanilla into the mix

4. Over a pan of boiling water, melt the dark chocolate and malteser chocolate in a bowl. If you are using malteser spread, you can add that directly into the mix instead of melting it. 

5.  Add the flour, cocoa powder, melted chocolate and boiling water. Whisk until all combined. 

6.  Pour into your greased pan and bake for 20 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. 

7.  Leave the cake to cool and begin making your frosting. 

8.  Cream the butter to ensure there are no lumps and it's light and fluffy. Sift the icing sugar into the butter and add the milk until combined. Finally add the chocolate spread and cocoa powder. 

9. Once the cake has fully cooled spread a nice even layer of frosting across the cake. Add maltesers to decorate. For malteser crumbs, put leftover Maltesers into a bag and crush and sprinkle. 

10. Devour the entire batch in 10 minutes from excitement. Or share with friends, that's okay too!

  4. Great traybake suggestions!

  5. This looks nice, I'm pinning it to my Recipes To Make board on Pinterest! One of my favourite things to "no-bake" is a Malteser slice which I have posted about on my blog in the past. I couldn't post the whole recipe because of copyright but it's from Sam Stern's Student Cookbook. If you haven't had it before, I recommend it! :)


    PS. I found your site through a post on It's Lauren Victoria. Look forwrd to reading more of your posts. :)
