Malteser Chocolate Loaf Cake

Malteser Chocolate Loaf Cake

If you have a school or office bake sale to bake for, what better than a Malteser Chocolate Loaf Cake? It’s a rich chocolate cake with Maltesers inside the cake adding a bit of crunch and covering the top too. Strawberry pieces add a flash of colour and a lovely fresh contrast in flavour and texture to the chocolate dripping off the cake.

Ideal for Red Nose Day or Easter or even just a special treat, you’ll be popular when you serve up this rich chocolate cake. It is so easy to make in a loaf tin and even easier to slice and eat, plus there is no tricky decorating needed so the kids will love getting stuck in making this with you too.

Cover the top in Maltesers, as many as you like, and find the melted Maltesers inside the cake adding their malty flavour, like little jewels. The soft cake goes so well with the crunch of the chocolate covering and of course the Maltesers!

This chocolatey cake looks incredible Lucy! I have raspberry pieces I could swap in for the strawberry pieces. Must put Maltesers on the shopping list 🙂

Maltesers are my major weakness haha, I could eat them forever. Love the idea of putting them in a cake (as well as on!). Also loving those red strawberries on top, so striking.
