malty-walty-banana-cake..........and this would be another that I thought of ,when I should have been doing some other work!(for example studying!)Anyway I tried it out...and I'm sorry if I sound a little immodest when I say this...but they were superb!Do try out the whole thing NOT just the cupcakes...........it has to be with this yum buttercream...I completely agree that the icing is not going to win any beauty contest.....BUT..it has character....and character is good!
1 cup wholewheat flour plus1 cup all purpose flour sieved together with 1 tsp baking pdr
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup chocomalt(maltova,ovaltine,nutramul,horlicks..whatever)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
FOR THE BUTTERCREAM ICING
50 gms butter
2 tablespoons powered sugar
4 tablespoons choco malt(or any of the other malt products)
2-3 tablespoons milk
THE WAY TO DO IT!
1.Put ALL the ingrds for the cake(eggs etc)in a bowl,use your hand held mixer and beat till nice and smooth,3-4mins.
2.Put the cupcake wrappers into the muffin pan........now put spoonfulls of the batter into the wrappers till 3/4th way up(if you don't have the wrappers,simply butter the muffin moulds and dust with flour...then pour the batter 3/4th into each mould...........its easier and less messy with the cupcake wrappers)
|after the heat treatment!|
1.Beat,with your hand held mixer the softened butter and sugar,till light and fluffy,add the chocomalt and the milk...beat again....the texture should be spreadable.
