I was a bit uneasy when I saw this week’s Baked Sunday Mornings recipe. Malted milkshakes? The last time I made those was when I followed the recipe on the back of the malted milk powder container. And it tasted gross. But I decided to take the risk and make them again.
I actually made this a few weeks early because they were perfect for Father’s Day. My dad loves malt and he loves sweets. Perfect! I had to make a few substitutions, though. I forgot to buy a vanilla bean and didn’t have time to go back out and buy one, so I used a splash of vanilla extract instead. I know, I know. It’s not the same. At all. But the shake still turned out great, so no losses.
I also had to use 1% milk because my family really doesn’t drink straight-up whole milk (their healthiness makes me cringe). But the shake still tasted great!
I kept everything else the same, aside from crushing the malted milk balls with a rolling pin instead of a mortar and pestle, and the milkshake came out great! It was thick, creamy, and the malt balls added such a great texture and flavor! This malted vanilla milkshake changed my perception of malted milk shakes for the better! I’ll definitely make this whenever I need a cold treat during the hot summer!

Also, my Baked Sunday Mornings posts are mostly going to be written in advance, but still posted on the posting date, from now on. I don’t prefer doing this, but I’m trying to bake ahead in preparation for my busy college freshman schedule 🙂 Whenever I can, I’ll bake as close to the posting date as possible!
