Recipe for 12 cupcakes:
2 ½ tsp baking powder
20g cocoa powder
1 pinch of salt
50g cold espresso (or really strong coffee)
1 tsp vanilla extract
50g plant-based butter
80g hazelnut nougat
110g plant-based milk
500g plant-based whipped cream
20g hazelnut nougat
1 tbsp plant-based milk
Baking: 180° Celsius- 18 to 20 minutes
Start with all the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa powder and mix it up together.
Melt the butter and the nougat in a small pot with low to medium heat. If it is creamy add the vanilla extract, the plant-based milk, and the expresso (coffee). Stir it every now and then.
Now mix all the ingredients – wet and dry – to get a semi-liquid dough.
Fill the prepared muffin forms with the dough and put it in the oven for 18 to 20 minutes at 180° Celsius.
For the Cream, topping let the nougat melt together with the tablespoon plant-based milk on low heat. Afterwards, let it chill again.
Now add the nougat cream slowly to the whipped cream and mix it. Fill the cream into a piping bag. As soon as the muffins cooled completely you can decorate them with the cream.
You can garnish the cupcakes with some cocoa powder on top just before serving them to your friends and family.
