    200g (1 cup, firmly packed) brown sugar
    185ml (3/4 cup) milk
    125g butter, chopped
    115g (3/4 cup) self-raising flour
    75g (1/2 cup) plain flour
    50g (1/2 cup) cocoa powder
    3 eggs, lightly whisked
    185g butter, extra, at room temperature
    345g (2 1/4 cups) icing sugar mixture
    95g (3/4 cup) malted milk powder
    1 tablespoon milk, extra
    465g Maltesers
    300g dark cooking chocolate, finely chopped
    125ml (1/2 cup) thickened cream
    30g butter
    1. Preheat oven to 160C. Grease a 20cm round cake pan with butter. Line base and side with baking paper.
    2. Place the brown sugar, milk and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave on high, stirring every minute, for 4-5 minutes or until the butter melts and the mixture is smooth.
    3. Use a balloon whisk to whisk the combined flour and cocoa powder into the butter mixture. Whisk in the egg. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 55 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
    4. To make the ganache, place the chocolate, cream and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Cook in microwave on high, stirring every minute, for 2-3 minutes or until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth.
    5. Use an electric beater to beat the extra butter in a bowl until pale and creamy. Beat in the icing sugar, malted milk powder and extra milk until fluffy. Beat in 1 1/2 tablespoons ganache.
    6. Set the remaining ganache aside for 1 hour 30 minutes or until thick, glossy and spreadable.
    7. Meanwhile, use a large serrated knife to cut the cake horizontally into four layers. Place the cake base on a platter. Spread with one-third of the icing. Continue layering with the remaining cake and icing, finishing with cake. Cover and place in the fridge for 1 hour 30 minutes to chill.
    8. Spread the ganache evenly over the top and side of the cake. Decorate with Maltesers.
