Sometimes there is nothing more comforting than a piece of cake and a glass of icy cold milk. If you are craving that particularly comforting combination, than this is the cake for you. Tender and moist yellow cake layers, generously slathered with a chocolate malt buttercream frosting, and sprinkled with crushed chocolate covered malted milk balls. This cake is old-fashioned and absolutely delicious.
