I think I may have just found my favorite fast brownie recipe. It's incredibly simple, and I bet a bunch of you have discovered this long before me, but for those who haven't... you must try it!
2 cups flour minus about 1 Tbsp
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 Tbsp cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
around 50g ground hazelnuts
3/4 cup sugar
Mix with a fork in a bowl.
100 grams melted butter
1 cup milk
1 large egg
Whisk in a separate bowl. Add to dry ingredients and barely fold together.
Well-greased muffin tins. Half fill, add half a teaspoon of Nutella to each, continue adding batter. Top with ground hazelnuts.
220 degrees C for 12-15 minutes.
coming up I thought I'd post one of my favorites and share it
with you all. I have a couple family members that are gluten intolerant
so most of them are incapable of having most desserts that people make,
but I found this recipe a couple months ago and at this point
I've had multiple friends and coworkers begging me to bake them
their own. In any case, image:
Okay, so you're going to need:
6 Large Eggs, Separated
10 Tablespoons Butter, Salted
1 Jar of Nutella
3 Bags of Hazelnuts(Filberts)(3 bags is just a guideline, I only used
about 2 and a half total, but they're tasty just by themselves.
So don't worry if you have some left over. They're an
1 Bag of Dark Chocolate Chips
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2)Chop your hazelnuts or grind them, size is to your preference, but I preferred mine pretty bitty.
3)Whisk your Egg Whites for about 2 Minutes
4)In another bowl, mix the butter and Nutella with an electric mixer(would
be a giant pain w/o but still doable). After its well mixed, add the egg
yolks and ground hazelnut( I only used about one and a half bags for
the cake and one more for the topping later).
5)Melt 3/4 of the bag of chocolate chips(about 100 Grams) and fold that into the mix. You can
make a topping with the left over chips later.
6)Slowly fold in your egg whites. About 1/3 of them at a time.
7)Pour into a greased and lined 23 cm Spring Form Pan.
8)Bake for about 40 minutes
Now you'll want to let it cool for about an hour before you remove it from the pan. Place
it on a wire rack to cool completely. Once completely cooled, frost with your favorite frosting recipe(personally I go for something fudgy each
time. Spread the rest of your ground hazelnuts over the top. Melt the rest of your dark chocolate chips and mix with a
tablespoon of butter. Put in a zip lock bag and cut a hole in one end so you can spritz it and voila! You're all done! Enjoy the deliciousness!
This post marks the end of the first week. 8 to go!

The last recipe [blackforest cupcakes] will be posted tomorrow as I couldn't photograph anything due to the absence of natural light [it's been raining for days]. It's been a good week! Take care and be happy.
Lemon Cake with Raspberry Cream Cheese Frosting and Chocolate Espresso Cake with Nutella Frosting: C
You can easily customize these sweet treats - between different flavors of cake and frosting, and even the endless topping combinations, these will definitely be my go-to for parties from now on. What kind would you make? What are your favorite toppings?
Next time I'm doing a simple Birthday Cake one with colored sprinkles in the cake batter. And, I can't wait to try these with peanut butter and caramelized bacon on top!

Whoever first thought of putting Nutella into brownies deserves some sort of award. Because it’s genius. Chocolate and hazelnut is a winning combination anyway, put those flavors into a brownie and you’ve got yourself a blue ribbon winner. Add some hazelnuts and you may discover that you’ll never need another brownie recipe again.

I was surfing the internet and food sites and saw the standard whoopie pies, with the chocolate outside and the vanilla cream. I decided the perfect entry for this month's challenge would be an inside-out whoopie pie: the white vanilla on the outside and the chocolate on the inside.
Obviously, a vanilla cake isn't going to cook white-white, but given the idea of these, I hope they are considered white enough for the theme!
