A forum member on N.com was asking if Maltesers would work in muffins. And I replied, "Can't see why not". So, of course I just had to see if they really did.
This is what I did.
2 cups S.R. Flour. (Well sifted)(Minus 3 tablespoons)
3/4 cup Castor Sugar.
2 large Eggs.
3/4 cup Milk.
1/2 cup Rice Bran Oil.
3 tablespoons Horlicks.
1 cup chopped Maltesers.
12 Maltesers cut in half. (For deco later)
Preheat oven to 170c.
Mix wet ingredients, add the dry ingredients and the chopped maltesers last.
Notice, I took out 3 tablespoons of flour because I was adding the dry horlicks.
I managed to get 24 muffins using this mix, even though they were a little small.
Place muffin tray in oven for 20 minutes, then take out of oven and place your halved maltesers on the top while still hot. This will help them stay on.
Wish I could remember the forum member who asked the question, and I wonder if she made them.
