I have been making this cake for forever. Well, it feels like it! For over 4 years. It's a family favourite but when I made it this week, it just didn't have the same spark. The cake was chewy and a bit flavourless. I honestly don't know what I did wrong. The icing was lovely, as it always is, so I may try the icing with a basic chocolate sponge. This sponge recipe doesn't have much butter at all in it, so I will try one with a bit more fat content to see if it has less of a rubbery texture. It was a bit disappointing, but it did all get eaten so it wasn't too bad! Maybe I just have high standards for myself now.
This malteser cake recipe post from 2009 is the highest viewed on my blog ever, so I feel like it is my duty to help the people of cyberspace with creating an even better malteser cake recipe. Sorry Nigella, but I think I need to move on. My perfect malteser cake mission starts now!
