  • For the sponge.

    150ml sunflower oil

    75ml whole milk

    75ml buttermilk

    1 large egg

    1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

    240g plain flour

    25g cocoa powder

    2 tsp baking powder

    1/4 tsp salt

    330g caster sugar

    150ml boiling water

  • Preheat oven to 190 oC (350 oF)

    Using a hand held electric whisk beat together the oil, milk, buttermilk, egg and vanilla extract.

    Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt, then stir in the sugar.

    Add a third of the dry mixture to the oil/milk mixture and beat in slowly until evenly incorporated.

  • Beat in a third of the boiling water, followed by another third of the dry mixture and continue with this until all the mixture is combined.

    Divide between the paper cases - I found this made 12-14 large cupcakes!

    Place in oven and bake for 20 mins.

  • Allow to cool completely before adding the frosting.

    For the frosting

    200g dark chocolate chips (minimum 70% cocoa solids)

    240ml double cream

    115g malted milk powder (Ovaltine)

    50g full-fat cream cheese (Philadelphia)

    35g caster sugar

    Maltesers to decorate.

  • Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl (either by setting over a saucepan of simmering water or in the microwave). Set aside to cool.

    Using the electric whisk, whip the cream with the malted milk powder until in forms soft peaks.

    In a separate bowl, beat the cream cheese with the caster sugar until combined, add the cooled chocolate and mix again.

  • Carefully fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture, adding half the whipped cream mixture at a time.

    Divide the frosting between the cupcakes. Decorate with Maltesers.

    Trust me - you will not need a huge amount of frosting on each cupcake - it is very rich!

    I got a large bag of dark chocolate chips from Hotel Chocolat - expensive - but worth it!
