hmmm...i have done cakes where you replace the water with slightly flat soda, not sure if that helps but gets you a bump!

as for malt...the powdered malt mix added to the icing/cake mix is all i can think of...but i am checking a couple books i have, too!

Well, I think this is one you might be looking for.

I make these all the time and they are great!

Melvira's Malted Cuppies
Contributed by Melvira

Malted Cuppies Take Over Earth!!

1 Devil's Food Cake mix
1 package Devil's Food Jell-O pudding mix
1/4 c. Carnation malt powder (chocolate or vanilla)
1 Tablespoon Hershey's cocoa powder
4 eggs
1 1/8 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons vanilla
Pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix all ingredients to moisten, then scrape sides of the bowl and beat on medium for 1 minute. (Batter will be THICK!) Scoop into cupcake liners or nut cups. Place in oven and immediately drop oven temp to 350 degrees. (If you bake in multiple batches, raise temp back to 400 between batches.) Bake for approximately 28 minutes, or until done. Yields 24-28 cupcakes.

Malted Filling

2 cups Bettercreme
1/2 cup Hersheys Whoppers Malt Syrup

Pour both ingredients into mixing bowl, whip to semi-stiff peaks. Fill cooled cupcakes. Will fill 24-28 cupcakes.

Malted Ganache

1/3 cup whipping cream
2 Tablespoons malt powder or Hersheys Whoppers Malt Syrup
1 cup mini Nestle morsels

Heat whipping cream to boiling, add malt powder and stir to dissolve. Add chocolate and stir until smooth. (Strain if needed to insure smooth texture with no lumps.) Dip tops of filled cupcakes in ganache, allow to set, then decorate with leftover filling.

I think I might have the root beer one also. Still checking.

Hope this helps.

Root Beer Float Cupcakes

1/2 cup unsalted butter/ 1 stick
3 eggs slightly beaten
1 tablespoon Root beer extract (Lorann oil)
Large marshmallows

Preheat oven to 375
In an a large bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt together and set aside.
In mixing bowl put butter and sugar and beat till light and fluffy, add eggs one at a time till blended well. Add Root Beer and Root beer extract, and stir till blended
Slowly begin to add dry ingredients and mix till smooth, about 2 minutes
Spoon batter into cupcake papers, filling cups about 2/3 full. Place a large marshmallow in center of each cupcake & push down slightly. Bake for 20- 25 minutes

Root Beer Frosting

2 cups powder sugar
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon Root Beer extract (Lorann oil)
1/4 Root Beer
1/2 cup butter /1 stick
Whipped cream for topping

To make the frosting place powdered sugar and salt in a large bowl. Slowly add butter cut in small pieces, add root beer extract and Root beer and beat until fluffy and has a good spreading consistency, add more powdered sugar if needed.
Frost cooled cupcakes and top each cupcake with a little whipping cream
***Please note that during baking marshmallows might over flow on to baking pan, if that happens be prepared, when the cupcakes come out of oven to take a spoon and push back the marshmallow to the top of cupcake.

OMG Rose, you are amazing!!! Thank you sooooooo much for doing that for me!

I have only two there any difference if i am using the recipe for cakes instead of cupcakes??? any changes I need to make?

and the second question is when it calls for a tsp of extract, I have those little drams by Lorann, are they one tsp or do I use only half of it?

Thank you thankyou thank you again!!!!

I've only done them as cupcakes so I'm not sure what to tell you on that one.

As far as using the LorAnn. I would start with several drops. They are strong and a little goes a long way.

Maybe someone else on here can help you out more on this.

Glad to help!

If you can make cupcakes with it, you can use it for cake.

See how many cupcakes the recipe will make and adjust amounts for whatever size cake your making

On Lorann Oils website it says 1dram = 1 teaspoon.
