Chocolate Malted Cupcakes

I am not a fan of whoppers candy, but when I say these chocolate malted cupcakes on Meet Me in the Kitchen, they looked so good I had to try them. Now, Mare at Meet Me in the Kitchen actually got the recipe from Culinary Concoctions by Peabody.

I must tell you that I wasn’t thrilled with how this cupcake turned out. It was just ok. The flavor of the cake was odd for me, I’m guessing because of the malt powder. Now, I absolutely ate these cupcakes, don’t get me wrong, but I wasn’t jumping for joy. The texture of the cupcake was also more brownie like than cake like.

I did however absolutely LOVE the Chocolate Malted Milk Whipped Cream frosting. I couldn’t tell at all that there was malt powder in it. It was a totally delicious chocolate whipped cream frosting. I will absolutely make this frosting again, but just put it on another cupcake or cake.

  3. Sorry you didn’t love the cake part of these! We did and so did everyone I shared them with. Maybe it was the malt powder in the cupcake. They look beautiful and I agree the frosting was amazing!

  5. I love malted milkshakes and malted milk balls, although I go for the really good kind you can get at Cracker Barrels. Or the kind my sister-in-law used to bring us from Hawaii that had espresso chips in the chocolate. I think I would like those cupcakes.

  7. I’ve just discovered your blog, and I want to say Thank You! I did a search for a Chicken Pillows recipe and found your blog. And discovered many, many delicious recipes to try. I made the chicken pillows yesterday, and there were a hit! I’m from Idaho, but live in the United Kingdom now, and was very pleased to see lots of familiar recipes that you’ve posted. The only problem is I can’t always find the same ingredients here! Thanks again, Jana
