How to Make Chocolate Malt Cupcakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and line cupcake pans with 24+ papers
  2. Sift together flour, cocoa, soda, salt, sugar and whisk in brown sugar, set aside. In a large mixing bowl blend milk and malt powder until malt dissolves. Slowly add flour mixture into the malt mixture, then the oil mixing on high until incorporated. Add eggs one at a time, scraping bowl as you go. Mix in sour cream and vanilla until just blended. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full. Bake 15-19 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in pans 10 min. then remove to wire racks until completely cooled.
  3. When cupcakes are completely cooled prepare the frosting. Whip butter on high several minutes until fluffy and very light. Add malt and cocoa, if desired. Whip on medium speed for 1 minute. Slowly add powered sugar until the right consistency for piping or frosting. May add a 1T of milk at a time if to thick.
  4. Frost cupcakes, cut straws down to desired size and stick one into each cupcake if desired and top with a malted milk ball, if desired. I used Easter ones as shown in my photo, being Easter is just around the corner. :o)
