Malteser Mini Muffins #CaitlansKitchen

As the true procrastinator I am, I decided to do everyones favourite type of procrastinating… ProcrastiBaking! Here is the recipe and some pro tips and tricks I learnt along the way!

Ingredients – Muffins:
1 1/2 cups (225g) plain / all purpose flour
1 cup crushed Maltesers (approx 3 cups whole Maltesers)
24 whole Maltesers (decoration)
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
1Tbls Baking Powder
1 egg
3/4 cup sour cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter – melted
1/4 cup (60ml) milk
1/2 Tsp salt
Ingredients – Icing:
1 1/2 cups (225g) icing sugar
1 Tbls milk
2 Tbls golden or maple syrup
1/4 cup (60ml) milk
30g unsalted butter – softened at room temperature

Oven: 180C / 350F

  • Pre heat oven and then line your tray with patty pan / cake papers.
  • In one large bowl add the flour,  crushed Maltesers*, caster sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir together  and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • In separate bowl, beat together (on low setting) melted butter*, milk, egg and sour cream. Once well combined add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
  • Mix together well with a wooden spoon (or electric beaters if you prefer) until it has formed a thick ‘runny’, ‘gloopy’ dough like mixture. Not quite as runny as a batter.
  • Spoon cake mix into patty pans – fill to half way.
  • Bake for 16 – 20 minutes.
  • Leave to cool.
  • To make the icing mix all the ingredients together with a wooden spoon. Place in the fridge for 10 – 15 minutes to ‘thicken’.
  • Spread icing over the now completely cool mini muffins and decorate with one whole Malteser.
  • Enjoy!

Pro Tips

*Place whole maltesers into a plastic bag: ziplock back or freezer bag and then crush with wooden spoon until they’re a powder.

*To melt butter, place in a microwave safe container and heat for 30seconds on high. Take it out and stir. If it is not fully melted, put back in for 10second intervals until completely melted.
