Chocolate Malt Ball Cake

I saw this Chocolate Malteser Cake recipe on Pinterest and pinned it instantly. I changed the recipe a bit because it was all chocolate including the cake. This one I changed to a delicious vanilla cake with a chocolate fudge icing and Maltesers on top.

The recipe for the vanilla cake came from a wonderful cook book I found called The Commonsense Cookery Book first published in 1914. It is my go to book when I want a basic recipe that is easy to make. It is an invaluable cook book in my library.

Vanilla Cake

125gm milk free margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 eggs
2 cups self raising flour sifted
1/2 cup rice milk

1. Grease and lightly flour 20cm round baking tin.

2. Cream butter sugar and vanilla.

3. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

4. Add sifted flour alternately with milk.

5. Spread in prepared tin and bake at 180C/350F for 45 minutes. Keep an eye on it as it may burn before cooked. If so just cover with foil and place on lower shelf in oven until done.

Spread on cake thickly.

Arrange Maltesers in a cross first then fill in each section.

Can I use the same amount of whole milk instead of rice milk?

Does "gm" stand for "grams"?

And could you give me some worldwide popular brands for milk free margarine? I found Vitalite and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter but I'd like you to confirm this. Thanks!

Hi Daniel

Yes you can use whole milk. That was the original recipe but being lactose intolerant I used Rice Milk but you can also use Soy Milk.

Yes gm does stand for grams.

I'm sorry I can't help you with the last one I only know what Australia has. But if you can have whole milk then just put butter or normal margarine.
