Week 29: Malted Milk Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge Frosting

What could be better than malted milk and cupcakes? I love malts...and these cupcakes were sooooo easy to make, and really fun, too! It's a recipe from 125 Best Cupcake Recipes by Julie Hasson. The frosting is called "Chocolate Fudge," and it almost tastes like it! I added a malted milk ball to the top of each cupcake. And, since we had a birthday in our house today, I added the candle...


When I went to the Safeway early this morning to do my cupcake material shopping, I couldn't believe the crowded parking lot...not normal. It seemed pretty busy inside, too. Shortly I found out why...more than 50 people in line for flu shots...at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday morning. Unfortunately for the late-comers, there were only 50 doese of shots! But, some really funny things happened while I was there...Over the loudspeaker, someone announced...Nelly. Nelly. Tell the nurse she has a call from her SUPERVISOR right now! One can only imagine what that was about! The next announcement was made by a guy. He said: Ted, if you're here, call Dave on 149. If you're not here, don't call! Now, that was funny!

    mmmm...I love it! I've always wanted to try malt cupcakes. I have looked everywhere for malt milk powder but have had no luck. Do you think Ovaltine Malted Milk Drink will be ok to substitute?

    And if you think they look delicious, you should taste one. Thick and chocolatey, as any good malt should be.

  10. About the chocolate cream liqueur...I read somewhere that you can substitute 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of chocolate extract for 2 tablespoons of liqueur. I've never really looked for chocolate extract. I substituted the same amount of Starbuck's Coffee liqueur because I didn't have any of the chocolate. It worked great!

  13. Loved the comments re the Safeway loudspeaker. Reminds me of a Jennifer Anniston movie -- think it's called the Good Girl. There are a few hilarious scenes where employees run amuck with the loudspeaker.
    Enjoy visiting your site -- keep it up.
