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.

You could just use your favourite chocolate cake recipe, or use the recipe from The Whoot, the full recipe can be found here.

I made the candy cane cake last week and it looked good (made a bog standard Greens chocolate mud cake from the box cake mix), those candy canes sure are sticky to handle when cutting up, used 3 bags. Only needed 1 bag of Christmas M&Ms, so we get to eat the contents of the other bag. It looked great and I had a thin green ribbon to wrap around. If I make it again next year though I might do a taller cake, maybe a Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake box cake mix. This week I am making the Malteser covered Christmas Pudding (look) cake but on top instead of custard I will mix a concoction of white chocolate and cream to melt then cool, like I did for the chocolate on one of your other cakes a few weeks ago (the choc mint cake perhaps?). Then I’ve got some fake holly but though I would try glace red and green cherries first, to see how it looks. I will buy the choc sponges this week though, never made one before and don’t need the added stress this week of all weeks! Wish me luck 🙂
