Sweet Sunday – Malteser Cupcakes

There are a couple of products that I just don’t buy because I know myself and I just cannot resist eating the whole darn bag at once. Namely, Doritos Nacho Cheese and Maltesers.img_2209However this time I wanted Maltesers and I wanted them bad. So what did I do? I made Malteser cupcakes with even more cocoa in it. And may I just say that these might just be the best cupcakes I have ever made and eaten(cause I did, and lots of them).img_2211They are very dark in colour, which I can connect with on a spiritual level, and there are melted Maltesers in them, which I just love because it’s melted Maltesers. Yeah, I know. Melted Maltesers.img_2210Make them and try to tell me I’m the only that can’t get enough of them.

Malteser Cupcakes

  • Servings: 12 cupcakes
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print


  • 125 grams butter (room temperature)
  • 124 grams light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 125 grams self raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 50 grams cocoa powder
  • 200 ml buttermilk
  • 150 grams Maltesers + extra for decoration
  • 250 grams cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp icing sugar

Used kitchen appliances

  • Oven
  • Cupcake tin and liners
  • Food processor or electric whisk
  • 1 large mixing bowl
  • Ziplockbag


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. Line the cupcake tin with the liners.
  2. Whisk together the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy in the bowl. Beat in the eggs one by one. Add the vanilla and mix.
  3. Sieve over the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. Mix with a wooden spoon until combined.
  4. Finally add the buttermilk and mix.
  5. Put the Maltesers in the ziplock bag and crush them roughly. Incorporate this in the batter.
  6. Place batter in the cupcake tin until the liners are filled for about 2/3. Bake in the oven for 30 min or until a cocktail stick comes out relatively clean (ofcourse the Maltesers melt in the oven so there might be some chocolate on the stick).
  7. In the meantime, make the cream by combining the cream cheese and icing sugar. Let the cupcakes cool completely before decorating with the cream and extra Maltesers.
