  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180 degrees and grease and line a 23 x 33cm traybake tin.

  • Step 2

    First, make the cake batter. Gently melt the butter in a saucepan and leave to cool slightly.

  • Step 3

    Into a large bowl, add the flour, cocoa powder, malted milk powder, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt. Use a whisk to stir through (this will do the same as sifting it into the bowl).

  • Step 4

    Add the sugar and continue to whisk to break up any lumps.

  • Step 5

    Whisk together the milk, oil, vanilla extract and melted butter before whisking into the dry ingredients.

  • Step 6

    Start slowly at first until everything is incorporated and then give it a good beat with the whisk.

  • Step 7

    Pour into the prepared tin, smooth over and bake for 30 minutes. The cake should have risen and slightly shrunken at the sides. A skewer should come out clean when poked into the middle.

  • Step 8

    Remove from the oven and leave for 10 minutes before inverting onto a wire rack and leaving to cool fully.

  • Step 9

    Once the cake has cooled, begin to make the frosting.

  • Step 10

    Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of barely simmering water, stirring a few times until smooth. Heat the milk in a small saucepan until steaming and gently bubbling, not boiling.

  • Step 11

    Into a large bowl, sift the cocoa powder and malted milk powder, gently stir in the hot milk to form a smooth paste. Set aside to cool for a few minutes.

  • Step 12

    Add the butter to the paste, sift in the icing sugar and beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Fold in the melted cooled chocolate.

  • Step 13

    Pour half onto the cooled cake, smooth over with a palette knife before adding the rest and swirling around on top. The frosting will set after 30 mins or so.
