Preparation

For the cake:
1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/350˚F. Butter and line a 9″ cake pan.
2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add an egg, beat it in, then add the other and beat again.
3. Sift the flour, Horlicks and baking powder into the bowl, then fold it in until nearly combined. Add the milk and fold again. Finally, add the boiling water and combine.
4. Spoon the batter into the pan and put it in the oven.
5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until cake is a deep gold color a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and let cake cool.
6. Cover the cake in ganache, then top with Maltesers.

For the ganache
1. Break the chocolate up into small pieces and put it into a heat-safe bowl.
2. In a small saucepan heat the cream until it starts to steam, then pour it over the chocolate.
3. Leave it alone for a few minutes and then stir in until you have a smooth, glossy ganache.

Notes:
- Maltesers: yummy round malt honeycomb candy covered in milk chocolate.
- Horlicks: malted milk powder.
