Christmas Malteser Cake

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I found this recipe on The Whoot recently, Natalie Tyner tweaked a chocolate cake to make it look like a Christmas Pudding. Underneath is a delicious looking sponge cake which can be layered with cream and chocolate icing.  This would certainly make a good conversation point at your upcoming Christmas party.

This Christmas Malteser Cake recipe is a a fun and chocolatey modern version of a Christmas Pudding.
