Bake this cake in a 13x9 pan or as cupcakes in fun paper liners. I am a sweet and salty addict, so I sprinkle popcorn on top. —Susan Scarborough, Fernandina Beach, FL

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter flavoring, optional
  • 2-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup malted milk powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup whole milk

  • 2-3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely crushed malted milk balls

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a 13x9-in. baking pan. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Batter may appear curdled. If desired, beat in flavoring. In another bowl, whisk flour, milk powder, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
  2. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  3. In a large bowl, beat butter until creamy. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and cocoa alternately with milk until smooth. Spread frosting over cake; sprinkle with crushed malted milk balls.
