Ingredients

For the cake

  • 4 eggs separated
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 50g Maltesers drink powder
  • 15g corn flour

 

For the cream filling

  • 180ml whipping cream
  • Maltesers drink powder to taste

 

For the chocolate glaze

  • 70ml whipping cream
  • 60g dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces

 

For decoration

  • 1 x 37g bag Maltesers

Method

For the cake:

1. Preheat oven to 180˚C.

2.  Whisk the egg yolks and 80g icing sugar until very pale and forms a ribbon.

3.  Separately beat the egg whites until half raised, add the 45g icing sugar and whisk until stiff.

4.  Mix 1/3 of the whites into the yolks and stir in.

5.  Then very gently fold in the remaining whites.

6.  Before the mixture is completely smooth add the drink powders and corn flour, mix until just combined and stop.

7.  Bake at 200°C for 8 minutes in a roulade tin lined with baking paper (the sponge should be well raised and not wet to touch).

8.  Remove from the oven, then carefully transfer onto a clean tea-towel dusted with caster sugar.

9.  Roll the sponge up with the towel inside while still warm and leave until cooled down.

For the cream:

1.  When the sponge is cool, whip the 180ml cream with extra Maltesers powder, to taste.

2.  Carefully unroll the sponge, then spread it with the whipped cream.

3.  A few crushed Maltesers can also be added at this point if liked.

4.  Roll the sponge back up into a neat cylinder and wrap in cling film and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes.

 

For the chocolate glaze:

1.  To make the chocolate glaze heat the rest of the cream gently in a pan to simmering point.

2.  Take off the heat and add the chocolate and let it sit for 30 seconds to melt, then mix with a spatula until smooth.

 

Assembly:

1.  Take the cake out of the freezer and trim the ends.

2.  Place on a wire rack over a tray and pour over the warm glaze.

3.  Transfer to a serving dish and decorate with the remaining Maltesers.
