Chocolate Malted Cupcakes | www.tasteandtellblog.com

I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for everyone who came out and supported the Bake Sale this weekend. I heard that between the Salt Lake and Orem bake sales, almost $1200 was made for Share our Strength. I know that several of my friends and readers showed up to the Orem sale to buy some of my goodies. I’m so grateful for all of you!!

And since my mom got one of these cupcakes and wanted the recipe, I thought I’d share it with you all today. (I also made some cookies that I’ll be sharing the recipe for soon!) I turned to Martha Stewart, and I wasn’t disappointed. These cupcakes were super moist. The only thing I was a little sad about was that once you put the frosting on the cupcake, you couldn’t really taste the malt in the cupcakes anymore. But they were still super delicious!!

Chocolate Malted Cupcakes
from Martha Stewart Cupcakes

Makes about 28

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder*
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 1/4 cups malted milk powder
1 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F. Line standard muffin tins with paper liners. Whisk together flour, cocoa, both sugars, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, whisk together milk and malted milk powder until powder is dissolved.

With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat flour mixture, milk mixture and oil until combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until each is incorporated, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add sour cream and vanilla, and beat just until combined.

Divide batter evenly among lined cups, filling each halfway. Bake, rotating tins halfway through, until a cake tester inserted in centers comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Cupcakes can be stored up to 3 days at room temperature, or frozen up to 2 months in airtight containers.

*Dutch-processed cocoa is one of those ingredients that I rarely find in my neck of the woods. So I used regular unsweetened cocoa powder, and still thought these were very tasty!

Fluffy Vanilla Frosting
from Martha Stewart Cupcakes

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 pound (4 cups) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

With an electric mixer, beat butter on medium-high speed until pale and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Reduce speed to medium. Add the confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down sides of the bowl as needed; after every 2 additions, raise the speed to high and beat 10 seconds to aerate frosting, then return to medium. This process should take about 5 minutes. Frosting will be very pale and fluffy.

Add vanilla, and beat until frosting is smooth.

    What perfect cupcakes! I have malt powder in my cupboard but have never used it… I'm always intrigued by malt powder in baked goods. Sounds so delicious.
