I know this title is not very creative, but seriously this is genius. No, I have discovered that this idea is not original, but whatever my method is a lot simpler than others out there, plus it's fun.
While babysitting the gruesome twosome yesterday (two of my younger siblings) we were confuddled about what we should do. Then remembering that they'd asked to make cakes a couple of days beforehand I started looking through Abs' cook books for cakes and muffins. Now, the gruesome twosome are extremely fussy eaters, so most of the delicious sounding cakes had to be disqualified, sadly for me. Both J&A love Maltesers (and so do I, not that was an influence at all) so I came up with the idea of Malteser Muffins! I had a beautiful image in my head of what they'd look like, however cooking with little kids kind of means it'll be messy, oh well.


  • 200g self-raising flour
  • 75g margarine (I used clover, because who cares)
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Crushed Maltesers (just guess at the amount, I did)
  • 75-100ml milk
  • 3tsp Vanilla essence 

Butter Cream:

  • Butter
  • Icing sugar
  • Vanilla essence 

Pre-heat oven to 200 Degrees C.

1. Add the flour to a bowl, then add your butter/margarine (whichever you choose to use). Using your fingers, rub the flour into the butter/margarine until it is crumbly.

2. Then add your sugar, mixing it in. Then add your egg (yay for cracking the egg = fun bit!) mixing it in, the mixture can get a little tough here but keep working at it.
3. Add and mix in your crushed Maltesers! (Try not to eat too many, I used some for decoration).
4. Add in the vanilla essence and enough milk  for the mixture to become creamy, like a normal cake mix. Then add to your cake cases, we managed to half fill about 12 cases, remember the cakes will rise! 
5. Put in the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Optional- lick the bowl!!! But remember this can make you ill/give you a sore stomach because of the raw egg.
6. Either while the muffins are cooking or cooling (leave them to cool for about 15-30 minutes) you can make your butter cream. I haven't added measurements because everyone likes it differently. But first add your butter to a bowl and cream it.
7. Then add in the icing sugar bit by bit, until it is the right sweetness, you can then add in some vanilla essence.
8. Add your butter cream to the top of your muffins and decorate with your remaining Maltesers (if there are any) to your heart's content.


These are great to make with kids, its not hard and doesn't take too long. They were so good that my Mum and one of her best friend's begged that I make some for her to take to work for her and the other nurses. Believe it not, she forgot them after I slaved away! These photos are of the cakes from today and not yesterday, as yesterday the butter cream didn't look quite so good. Despite how stressful and tiring looking after J&A can be, I actually had fun making these cakes, however it is a lot easier when doing it on my own.
So remember, each day, live a little, laugh a little and love a little. 
And eat a Cake!
