Ovaltine Soak

Ovaltine Soak

Step 1

Whisk together milk and Ovaltine™ in a small bowl until the Ovaltine™ is completely dissolved. Use immediately.

Why Ovaltine?

Ovaltine is a key inspiration point in this super-nostalgic cake. We soak our layers in this nutritious, chocolatey drink to keep the cake rich and amp up the malted flavor throughout — Ovaltine literally ties the cake together!
