Malteser Cupcakes

Malteser Cupcakes

 

These Malteser cupcakes are, as the name suggests, stuffed full of crushed Maltesers.  To finish them off, the cupcakes are smothered with caramel icing  , and topped with a Malteser.  While these cupcakes are amazing with the caramel icing, they are equally as good without it, so it’s totally up to you whether you ice them or not.  The receipe traditionally uses sour cream, but I didn’t have any handy so I used some natural yoghurt I already had in the fridge, which gives pretty much the same result.

    Hi All. I made these cupcakes on the weekend and was rather disappointed with them. They were very dry and the cupcake was crumbly. Very disappointing because I spent so much time piping lovely buttercream onto the cupcakes. Now I don’t want to eat them. I think the recipe needs to be reworked as I followed it EXACTLY and they weren’t good.
