Biscuits inside cakes – Malted Milk

Malted milks – seemly plain and dull, they have a certain comfort to them. Quite possibly one of my top 5 biscuits. So into the cake mixture it went!

When they were in the oven the smell of the malt was fantastic. A wave of Horlicks memories came over me when the door opened. Inside, I was fairly surprised to see the malted milk keep its form inside the cake.

Malted milks were  first produced by Elkes Biscuits of Uttoxeter in 1924  (now owned by Fox's Biscuits)

The texture of the baked biscuit in side the cake was soft and sqidgey. It was almost a bit gooey, which was a nice surprise. I couldn’t really taste the malt, although I could definitely smell it.

I think next time I would need to put lots more malted milks into the batter to make the taste come through, or perhaps a sprinkling on top.

Malted milk biscuits have a picture of a cow on it. Which is nice.
