Chocolate Malt Cake

So I’m a little predictable—it doesn’t matter that I’ve made over a dozen different types of chocolate cake, I’m always ready to take on a recipe I’ve never tried. This chocolate cake with a malt siding did not disappoint, the only thing I swapped out was the frosting.

Instead of using a malt frosting, I went for a traditional chocolate ganache, since I rimmed the side of the cake with crushed Whoppers for the malt flavoring.

The thing you might like best about this cake—aside from the flavor—it bakes between 17 to 20 minutes. Be sure to make the frosting the night before, so you are ready to frost once the cake is cooled. Then, get fork-ready because this one is a plate-clearing addiction.

Like all BHG recipes, this one is highly adaptable.  If Whoppers aren’t your thing, make it your own by crushing your favorite candy.
