Easter nest – chocolate with coffee buttercream cupcake

Easter Nest_Chocolate CoffeeIt is already Easter so I had to bake something seasonal. Let’s go for a nest with some chocolate eggs!

For 6 large nests

The cupcake

  • 20g cocoa powder
  • 70ml boiling water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 70g flour
  • 75g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 40g unsalted butter

Buttercream

  • 150g icing sugar
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon of coffee extract

Preheat the oven at 150°C.

Mix the cocoa powder with the boiling water.

In a bowl, mix the egg with the sugar. Add the vanilla extract and a quarter of the chocolate mixture. Then add the flour and baking powder. Stir well and add the melted butter and the rest of the chocolate mixture.

Once the mixture is well combined, pour the dough in cupcake moulds.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Once baked, let the cupcakes cool completly.

For the butter cream, mix all the ingredients together.

To make the nests, pour the coffee buttercream in a pastry bag. Use a small star nozzle to create the twigs of the nest. Don’t forget to drop the chocolate eggs in the middle of the nest!
