Prep Time : 0:30 | Cook Time : 1:05 | Total Time : 1:35 | Serving : 12 person.


  • 200g (1 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar

  • 185ml (3/4 cup) milk

  • 125g butter, chopped

  • 115g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour

  • 75g (1/2 cup) plain flour

  • 50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder

  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked

  • 185g butter, extra, at room temperature

  • 345g (2 1/4 cups) icing sugar mixture

  • 95g (3/4 cup) malted milk powder

  • 1 tablespoon milk, extra

  • 465g Maltesers


  • 300g dark cooking chocolate, finely chopped

  • 125ml (1/2 cup) thickened cream

  • 30g butter


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 160C. Grease a 20cm round cake pan with butter. Line base and side with baking paper.

  • Step 2

    Place the brown sugar, milk and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave on high, stirring every minute, for 4-5 minutes or until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth.

  • Step 3

    Use a balloon whisk to whisk the combined flour and cocoa powder into the butter mixture. Whisk in the egg. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Step 4

    To make the ganache, place the chocolate, cream and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave on high, stirring every minute, for 2-3 minutes or until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.

  • Step 5

    Use an electric beater to beat the extra butter in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in the icing sugar, malted milk powder and extra milk until fluffy. Beat in 1 1/2 tablespoons ganache.

  • Step 6

    Set the remaining ganache aside for 1 hour 30 minutes or until thick, glossy and spreadable.

  • Step 7

    Meanwhile, use a large serrated knife to cut the cake horizontally into four layers. Place the cake base on a platter. Spread with one-third of the icing. Continue layering with the remaining cake and icing, finishing with cake. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour 30 minutes to chill.

  • Step 8

    Spread the ganache evenly over the top and side of the cake. Decorate with Maltesers.
