Quite a while ago I did some experimenting with Ovaltine where I ended up coming up with some amazing tasting biscuits. As it has been some time since I revisited this childhood flavour I decided to get back and do some some experimenting.
A slice, cake and an icing recipe later, the simple and delicious icing won out.
To me this icing holds such great unique properties that is also a little left of center (you expect chocolate flavor but are pleasantly surprised with a twist you just can’t place your finger on…that being the malt).
So if you want to turn a plain cake into something with personality and character this icing will create something special.
- 90g butter
- 1/2 tsn vanilla essence
- 1/2 cup Ovaltine
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1 tbsn milk
- Beat the butter and essence in a bowl with electric beaters for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy.
- Beat in the Ovaltine, icing sugar and milk until well combine.
