Milo cupcakes with Milo mascarpone frostingThere a heaps of pretty examples of choc-malt cupcakes online and I decided to try making some of my own! I didn't manage to find malt milk powder so I used Milo instead.
I used my usual chocolate cupcake recipe, but reduced the cocoa by 1/4 cup and added in 1/2 cup of Milo. For the Milo frosting I used:
- 230g butter
- 1/2 cup milo
- 1 and 1/2 cups icing sugar
- 3 tbs cocoa
- 100g mascarpone cream
For decoration I piped frosting (using a french tip) and added a section of old fashioned paper straw with a malteser and a sprinkling of Milo to finish.
