Bournvita Cupcakes

One of the biggest troubles with packing up and shifting house is finding a way to use up all the random things in the kitchen cupboards. Found a packet of Bournvita, had no idea what to do with it. Figured, its just malt chocolate powder, so tossed it into a standard cupcake recipe. This is eggless, and the neighbourhood kids loved it :D


2 tbsp heaped - whole wheat flour
2 tbsp - muscovado sugar (more or less)
1 1/2 tbsp - bournvita powder
1/2 tsp - cocoa powder
1/8 tsp - baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp - sunflower oil
4 tbsp - low fat milk

Bournvita cream

3 tbsp - cream
1/2 tsp - bournvita
1/4 tsp - castor sugar 
mix everything together and beat until thick

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C and grease 7 mini bundt cake pans.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, sugar, bournvita powder, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder.
  3. In another bowl, mix well the oil and milk.
  4. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and mix lightly.
  5. Spoon the batter in to the greased bundt cake pans and place them in the center of the preheated oven and bake for approx 7-8 minutes.
  6. Let the cakes cool on a wire rack completely before decorating them with the bournvita cream.
