Milo recipes for fans of the childhood drink


This nostalgic beverage has been the default coffeeshop drink order for many of us, and if you ask me, nothing really beats a refreshing cup of Milo Peng on a hot afternoon. However, not many of us have explored the true potential of this chocolate malt drink. In this list of Milo recipes, we’ve incorporated the beloved beverage in sweet desserts and savoury treats, so you can find new ways to enjoy it!


1. Milo Lava Cake

If you’ve been looking up sweet and simple Milo recipes to recreate in the last month, you might have already seen this viral no-bake Milo Lava Cake recipe that’s been circulating the internet. The Milo recipe was contributed by Malaysian radio DJ Danny Koo, and depicts a Milo version of the gooey molten lava dessert.

Unlike the classic molten lava chocolate cake, this chocolate malt treat is steamed, instead of baked, so you can still give this dessert recipe a go even if you don’t have a working oven. If you want to serve it like they do in restaurants, be sure to grease your cake moulds well so you can flip the cakes out after they’re steamed!

Yield: Serves 3

Time needed: 10 minutes

Ingredients

4 tbsp Milo powder
1 tbsp hot water
1 egg
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp flour
3 tbsp butter, melted
Milo powder

Steps:

  1. In a bowl, combine the Milo powder with a tablespoon of hot water. Stir until the Milo has dissolved.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the egg and sugar, and whisk until the sugar dissolves. Add in the flour, Milo mixture, and melted butter. Stir until everything is combined.
  3. Lightly grease three small, heat-safe cake moulds or ramekins. Evenly divide the batter into the moulds.
  4. Fill a pot with some water and place a heating rack in the centre. Over medium-high heat, bring the pot of water to a boil. Place the cake moulds on the heating rack, and cover them loosely with a cloth. Leave them to steam, over high heat, for seven to eight minutes.
  5. Carefully remove the cakes from the pot, and let them cool for a few minutes. Gently flip each cake out onto a plate, then dust with Milo powder and enjoy them warm.

Crackly, flaky with a chewy fudge centre, no pre-mixed box brownie can match up to these homemade Milo Brownies. Like most of the Milo recipes on our list, this one is pretty versatile, so stir in some chopped walnuts and chocolate chips to take this chocolatey treat up a notch.

If you prefer your brownies on the cakier side, bake it for a couple more minutes in the oven. Though this cross between the malt drink and chocolate brownies definitely taste best slightly fudgy and ultra-moist!

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients

200g dark chocolate, roughly chopped
125g butter, cut in cubes
¾ cup sugar
3 eggs
½ cup Milo powder
½ cup flour
½ tsp salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a square cake tin with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large microwave-safe bowl, add in dark chocolate and butter. Microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring in between, until the mixture is completely melted and combined. Let it cool slightly.
  3. Add in the sugar and eggs, and whisk until combined. Sift in the flour, Milo powder and salt then fold to combine everything.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin, and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  5. Let the brownies cool completely before removing from the cake tin and cutting into bite-sized pieces.

3. Milo Tiramisu

Tiramisu has always been regarded as a grown-up dessert, because of the bitter coffee and alcohol included in the recipe. This Milo Tiramisu recipe is a more kid-friendly version of the classic Italian dessert, and uses the sweet chocolate malt powder to balance out the tart cheese and bitter cocoa.

Like many of the Milo recipes on this list, this recipe doesn’t require an oven, granted that you can find a packet of Ladyfinger biscuits at the supermarket. Otherwise, this four-ingredient Ladyfingers recipe is easy to whip up, and you’ll even have extra to make different versions of tiramisu when you want to.

Yield: Serves 9

Time needed: 15 minutes

Ingredients

Mascarpone cream:
1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
⅓ cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
225g mascarpone cheese 

Milo mixture:

1 cup hot water

1 packet Ladyfinger biscuits
2 tbsp Milo powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder

  2. Add softened mascarpone cheese into the cream and continue whisking until well-combined.
  3. In a shallow bowl, stir Milo powder and hot water together. Dip each Ladyfinger biscuit briefly into the Milo.
  4. In a separate bowl, lightly stir two tablespoons each of Milo and cocoa powder together. Set aside to use for dusting.
  5. In a eight-inch square dish or cake pan, lay down a layer of dipped Ladyfingers, then top with half the mascarpone cream. Using a fine sieve, dust a layer of the Milo and cocoa powder mix over the cream. Lay down another layer of Ladyfingers, then smooth the remaining mascarpone cream over it.
  6. Complete the dessert with another generous dusting of Milo and cocoa powder. Refrigerate for at least four hours or overnight.

4. Milo Mochi


Milo Recipes - Milo Mochi

If you’ve recently bought yourself a packet of glutinous rice flour to make some homemade muah chee, chances are you have enough leftover to recreate some Milo recipes. This Milo Mochi has a chewy mochi skin and decadent Milo truffle filling. Dust some Milo powder over each mochi ball to add extra malty flavour.

Ingredients

Milo Filling:
200g Milo powder
6 tbsp condensed milk

Mochi:
150g glutinous rice flour

  9. Dust the mochi pieces with Milo powder and serve. 

5. Microwave Milo Mug Cake


Milo Recipes - Microwave Milo Mug Cake

Instead of drinking your breakfast Milo out of a mug, you can eat it out of the mug with this Microwave Milo Mug Cake. If these Milo recipes ignited your interest towards microwavable cakes, check out our list of mug cake recipes that you can make at home.

Milo Recipes - Microwave Milo Mug Cake Close up

Since all microwave ovens have different wattages, check your Milo mug cake at the two-minute mark, and continue cooking in short 10-second intervals to prevent your mug cake from overcooking. If you prefer a moist cake centre, microwave it only till the surface of the cake is just cooked, and the centre will stay warm and fudgy.

Yield: Serves 2

Time needed: 5 minutes

Ingredients

2 tbsp flour
4 tbsp Milo powder
2 tbsp cocoa powder
¼ tsp baking powder
2 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp milk
½ tsp vanilla extract (optional)

1 egg

1 tsp Milo powder for dusting (optional)

Steps:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients. Whisk to get rid of all the clumps.

8. Fluffy Milo Pancakes


Milo Recipes - Fluffy Milo Pancakes Close up

Of all our Milo recipes, this one sticks best with the breakfast theme. Combining pillowy buttermilk pancakes with the drink, this Fluffy Milo Pancakes recipe makes a large batch of thick, chocolatey pancakes.

Milo Recipes - Fluffy Milo Pancakes

This recipe uses two leavening agents: baking powder and baking soda. Baking powder incorporates air into the batter while the pancake cooks, keeping them light and fluffy. Baking soda requires an acid to activate, and reacts with the soured milk to give the pancakes an evenly browned surface.

Yield: Serves 5

Time needed: 20 minutes 

Ingredients

1 cup milk
1 tbsp white vinegar
1 cup hot water
½ cup Milo powder
2 tbsp sugar
20g butter, melted
1 ⅓ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 egg

Milo powder (optional)
Icing sugar (optional)

Steps:

  1. In a bowl, combine milk and white vinegar. Set aside for five minutes for it to sour.
  2. In a bowl, combine hot water, Milo powder, sugar, and butter. Stir well till the Milo and sugar dissolves into the mixture.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 
  4. Make a well in the centre of the flour, then pour in the Milo mixture, soured milk, and egg. Stir till everything is smooth and well-combined.
  5. Preheat a pan over medium heat, and lightly grease the surface with some butter. Turn the heat down to medium-low, then pour in a ¼ cup of the pancake batter. 
  6. When bubbles start to appear on the surface, gently flip the pancake over with a spatula. Repeat with the rest of the batter. 
  7. Serve your Milo pancakes with a dusting of Milo powder and icing sugar, as well as some ice cream on the side!

In our recipe for Want Want Milk Ice Cream, we transformed the milky childhood drink into a velvety smooth ice cream. For our list of Milo recipes, we adapted this into a Milo Ice Cream, which uses the same process to infuse the cold treat with yet another nostalgic flavour. 

Milo Recipes - Milo Ice Cream

To make the flavour base, reduce a Milo UHT packet drink with condensed milk to concentrate its flavours as much as possible. Then, fold the concentrated Milo mixture into whipped cream to incorporate lots of air, and lend the ice cream a lighter, creamier texture.

Yield: Serves 8

Time needed: 30 minutes

Ingredients

1.5 cups heavy cream, chilled
80g condensed milk
100ml Milo UHT packet drink
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp vanilla extract

Milo powder for dusting (optional)

Steps:

  1. In a saucepan, cook the condensed milk with a Milo UHT packet drink until the mixture has been reduced to half. This should take around 10 minutes.
  2. Remove the condensed milk mixture from the heat, and chill over an ice bath while stirring constantly with a rubber spatula. Stop stirring when the mixture is thoroughly chilled.
  3. In a separate clean mixing bowl, beat the heavy cream with a hand mixer until soft peaks form.
  4. Whisk in a quarter of the condensed milk mixture to the cream, before folding in the rest of the mixture with the vanilla essence and salt using a rubber spatula.
  5. Pour the mixture into a freeze-proof container, wrap with cling wrap, and freeze for at least six hours, preferably overnight.

Adding another delicious baked good in our lineup of Milo recipes, these Chewy Milo Cookies are crispy around the edges and soft in the centre. Throwing in chocolate chips gives the cookies a gooey mouthfeel that further adds to the indulgent treat.

Milo Recipes - Milo Cookies

The key to soft and chewy cookies is refrigerating the cookie dough. This step is essential to prevent the cookie from spreading too thinly as it’s baking, which results in a crunchier cookie. On top of that, that additional chilling time develops and intensifies the flavours in the cookies.

Yield: Serves 12 (24 cookies)

Time needed: 

Ingredients

125g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
170g fine sugar
1 egg
½ cup Milo powder
190g flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chunks or chips

Steps:

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together using a hand mixer or wooden spoon. Keep beating until the mixture turns pale yellow and smooth.
  2. Add in the egg and beat well to combine. Then, sift in the Milo powder, flour, baking powder, and salt. Continue mixing until everything is well-combined.
  3. Pour in the chocolate chunks and fold them in until they’re evenly distributed in the cookie dough. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
  4. Preheat the oven to 160°C.
  5. Roll the chilled cookie dough into tablespoon-sized balls and place them on baking trays lined with parchment paper. Using your fingers or the back of a spoon, slightly flatten the top of each cookie dough ball.
  6. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven.
  7. Allow cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the baking trays before transferring them over to a cooling rack to cool completely.

12. Triple Milo Crepe Cake


Milo Recipes - Milo Crepe Cake

This is one we couldn’t leave out of a list of Milo recipes; make this Triple Milo Crepe Cake if you’re out to impress. Each thin, delicate layer of crepe is sandwiched together with a smear of Milo-flavoured cream. Then, the whole construction is blanketed in a luscious coating of Milo-chocolate ganache, giving the cake a beautiful and smooth sheen.  

Milo Recipes - Milo Crepe Cake Garnish

Any crepe cake takes effort and patience to build, but it’s a great alternative for those who don’t have an oven at home. Use a good quality frying pan to evenly cook the crepes, and to achieve the best presentation.

Yield: Serves 16

Time needed: 2.5 hours

Ingredients

Wet mix for crepe batter:
6 eggs, room temperature
3 boxes Milo UHT packet drink (200ml each), room temperature
100g unsalted butter, melted
½ tsp vanilla extract

Dry mix for crepe batter:
½ tsp salt
160g cake flour
20g sugar

Milo cream:
240ml heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp sugar
½ cup Milo powder

Milo ganache:
70g semi-sweet chocolate
100ml heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp condensed milk
½ cup Milo powder

Garnish:
2 tbsp Milo powder

Steps:

  1. To prepare the wet mix, whisk the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract. 
  2. To prepare the dry mix, sift the flour, sugar, and salt together in a separate mixing bowl. Beat with a whisk until everything is well-combined. 
  3. Pour the wet mix into the dry mix and whisk thoroughly. Strain the crepe batter using a fine strainer before transferring to another clean container. Cover with cling wrap, and chill for at least an hour. 
  4. Heat a 10-inch frying pan on medium-low heat and pour a ¼ cup of crepe batter into it. Cook the crepes for one minute on both sides until they are slightly brown but not crispy. 
  5. Transfer the cooked crepes to a wire rack and let them cool. The batter should give around 23 to 24 crepes. Once you’re done with cooking all of them, cover with cling wrap and chill in the fridge. 
  6. To prepare the Milo cream, whisk the whipping cream with a hand mixer until they develop soft peaks. Add the sugar and Milo powder, and continue to beat until medium peaks form.
  7. Layer the cake by placing a piece of crepe at the bottom of a cake stand or large plate, layer on a scoop of whipped cream, and continue this process until there are no crepes remaining. There’s no need to apply whipped cream on the top of the final layer.
  8. Place a round plate on the top of the cake and run a knife around the plate to trim off the edges. Place the cake in the fridge to firm up for at least 30 minutes. 
  9. Prepare the Milo ganache by heating up the cream and condensed milk in a saucepan until it’s almost simmering. In a mixing bowl, pour the heated cream mixture into the chocolate and let it sit for a minute before adding in the Milo powder. Stir the mixture with a whisk until it is thick and smooth.
  10. Place the chilled cake on top of a wire rack, and pour the Milo ganache over the cake and spread evenly. Chill for at least 30 minutes to let the ganache firm up.
  11. Decorate the cake by sprinkling Milo powder through a fine sieve. You may choose to serve it immediately, but it’s best to chill for at least an hour before serving. Keep the cake covered and you’ll be able to store it in the fridge for at least two days.

Nothing is as good of a pick-me-up as warm, chocolate chip muffins. And to add to our list of Milo recipes, we’ve taken it a step further and made them chocolate malt flavoured. These Double Chocolate Milo Muffins are speckled with semi-melted white and dark chocolate chips, so you can enjoy the balance of sweet and bitter in the muffin sponge.

Milo Recipes - Milo Double Choc Muffins

The trick to ultra-moist muffins is to not overbake them. Once the tops start to brown, take them out of the oven and the residual heat will finish the rest of the job. You can keep them in the refrigerator for up to five days and reheat them when needed, but these muffins are best enjoyed fresh.

Yield: Serves 12 (24 muffins)

Time needed: 10 minutes

Ingredients

1¼ cups warm milk
75g unsalted butter, melted
1 cup Milo powder
1 egg, beaten
1¾ cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup dark chocolate chunks or chips
½ cup white chocolate chunks or chips

Steps:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a muffin pan with muffin liners or lightly grease with some butter.
  2. In a large bowl, combine warm milk, melted butter, Milo powder, and the egg. Whisk together till well-combined.
  3. Sift in flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until everything is well-combined, then fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Ladle the batter evenly into the muffin liners, then bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
  5. Let the muffins cool completely on a cooling rack before serving.
