Happy Tuesday! It’s been a while since I did a Tuesdays with Dorie post, but I couldn’t resist these little Nutella-filled cupcakes called Nutella Buttons.
These were fun little cupcakes to make, and very easy to whip up. They are a simple, vanilla-flavored cupcake made light and tender by folding in whipped egg whites. The fun surprise is the dab of Nutella in the middle of the cupcake!
I like that the cake is not too sweet; it provides a perfect foil for the sweeter Nutella. I also like that the recipe does not make too many mini-cakes. I got only 19 cakes out of my mini-muffin pan. Perfect for every day snacking!
None! With all those whipped egg whites (4 total) and only a small amount of baking powder, I did not have to make any adjustments to this recipe. Yay!
If you are interested in baking Nutella Buttons, you can find the recipe on Page 188 of Dorie Greenspan’s latest book, Baking Chez Moi. I also found the recipe here (this link also includes and interview with Dorie).
