Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Nutella Buttons

Nutella Buttons from Baking Chez Moi on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is a simple white cupcake with a surprise inside!

A dollop of Nutella (or, in my case, chocolate peanut butter spread) hidden inside a light and fluffy white cupcake…

Apparently. These were snapped up by my neighbours as I was out on the porch on the weekend taking their photo…

They are a fun little afternoon treat, for sure.

Dorie Greenspan Nutella Buttons on eatlivetravelwrite.comI can see these being fabulous with jam or a curd on the inside too or just a plain dob of melted chocolate. In any case, easy to make and fun to eat!

Get the recipe for Dorie Greenspan’s Nutella buttons here or on p 188 of Baking Chez Moi.

    I had a hard time keeping everyone away from these too 🙂

    Seems like they would be perfect with a libation if one were celebrating something…

    I like the dollop of chocolate on top, very pretty. These were really tasty.

    Dollops of chocolate are delicious, especially with Nutella inside! And I think lemon curd would be a great idea too!

    what irresistible looking swirls of ganache– I’d be like your neighbors and swoop in if I saw these out, too!

    How cute are those?!!! Beautiful photos – the second one is my favorite. Loved how you iced them.

      Thanks so much – I did what I could re: icing, they were so tiny!
