S'more Cupcakes! The Perfect Autumn Bake

00:00:00


Morning!

I've been craving these you know. This is a personal recipe from a few years ago, when I used to bake on the regular. I miss baking, do you guys find the time to make cakes often? I can't remember when I first discovered s'mores, but as soon as I did I was obsessed. They're just so gooey and delicious. Everything you want is there. The crumbly biscuit base, the moist cake layer, with an oozing Nutella centre - all topped of course with a generous dollop of light, fluffy marshmallow.

I was going to bake these this weekend, take some sexy new photos and share with you guys. It got rather hectic though and I've not had a chance. But I can't let my schedule deny you of this sweet, chocolaty goodness. Seriously, you have to make these. They get devoured so quickly and will leave you wanting to bake more!




This is from my old blog, which I may or may not link in an upcoming post because - ish is hilarious. Oh man, there's some great chubby buddy pics on there. Maybe I should do a reaction video to my blog? We'll see. Anyway, back to the bake.

If you don't know what they are, s'more are usually a camp fire treat where you squish a toasted marshmallow in between two biscuits and some chocolate. Oh lawd! This is my take on the cupcake s'more! You might want to renew a gym membership if you bout to make these bad boys.



Recipe:


Buttery biscuit base
  • 100g biscuit crumbs
  • 2.5 tablespoons butter (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  1. Mix all together until evenly coated. 
  2. Press down into cupcake cases and bake at 170 degrees for 7 minutes.
Sponge:
  1. I used a simple chocolate cake recipe (you can use any you like)
  2. Before I scooped each serving into it's case, I topped the buttery biscuit base with a spoon of goey Nutella.
  3. (I'm not judging how much you put in, that's between you and your base ;) )
Marshmallow:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 100g white sugar
  1. Using a bain marie, whisk egg whites and sugar until the mixture is warm to the touch and the sugar has dissolved completely. This should take ~ 4 minutes on a medium heat.
  2. Take off the heat and transfer to a cold mixing bowl. Again using an electric mixer, beat for a further 5-8 minutes until stiff peaks form.
  3. Pipe over cakes (Usually you should wait for them to cool, but I didn't bother) I used a simple open circle piping tip.
  4. You can either use a cooks blowtorch for a few seconds or chuck it under the grill (very quickly!) you'll need to watch them carefully as they can burn easily. Or the paper case will just go up in flames. (Disclosure, Spinach and Specs takes no responsibility for damages caused through following this recipe.)
  5. Dribble some melted Nutella or chocolate onto one side, sprinkle biscuit crumbs and a chuck on chocolate to decorate.

What do you think?! It's tasty right! Would you guys like more recipes? I'd love to know what you enjoy reading/ recipes you'd like to learn. Leave a comment below or get at me on social media! Happy baking team.
