The beautiful Anna, a barmaid at work, brought these in to share, and everyone demanded the recipe. We call the chocolate covered malt balls Maltesers, but the 'zaar computer didn't know that name. A tin about 10 X 8 inches that you would use to bake a bar or slice is perfect for this. I have found a 9X9 inch cake pan works OK too.
- 1 cup self raising flour
- 3⁄4 cup cocoa powder
- 120 g chocolate covered malted milk balls (Maltesers)
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 400 g low-fat vanilla yogurt
- 1 tablespoon icing sugar
- Preheat the oven to 180°C.
- Coat a lamington tin with cooking spray.
- Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl.
- Stir in the chocolate covered malt balls (Maltesers).
- Combine the eggs, sugar, oil and yogurt and fold into the flour mixture.
- Spread into the prepared tin and bake for 30 minutes or until firm to touch.
- Cool in the pan.
- Cut into 16 pieces.
- Dust with icing sugar or cocoa.
Jan and Anna the DS's music recreation group love you. This went to the top of their list of favourites. I made 2 in 9"x9" (23cmx23cm) cake tins and cooked in a fan forced oven at 175c for 25 minutes (could do with turning down to 170). I used a creamy vanilla yoghurt not low-fat. I dusted 1 with icing sugar and the other with cocoa powder. Thanks once again Jan and Anna. Made for Edition 4 - Make My Recipe - a game of tag.
I was so anxious to try these after reading all the rave reviews. However only giving 3 stars because they seemed to get better after a few days. Not a fan of their texture, the malt flavor was lost. Would rather eat the malted milk balls solo.
My son needed a recipe too make for a class project at his school and he picked this one out. It was quick and simple enough for he and his "buddy" too make - the only complaint was that there wasn't enough for seconds lol thanks for sharing a quick, delicious recipe - Tanika, Qld
