Chocolate Nutella Lava Cookies

December 26, 2019
Oversized rich chocolate cookies are full of Nutella. once you break the cookies open, they release a totally molten, liquid lava Nutella center.

I’ve made Nutella stuffed cookies before, but the matter was always that a number of the Nutella would cook while the cookies baked, so while they still had a gooey Nutella center, they didn’t have a lava center.

Chocolate Nutella Lava Cookies
Chocolate Nutella Lava Cookies

But now I’ve finally done it. There are not any tricks or food styling happening here. These cookies really are just oozing with Nutella.

I got the thought when re-creating Levain Bakery’s Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies. As you recall, those cookies have a rather gooey center, which made me think they’d be the right base for stuffing with Nutella. surely, barely any of the Nutella cooks during baking. The chocolate cookies are cooked until barely set and therefore the Nutella stays soft and liquidy.

Chocolate Nutella Lava Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup unsalted cold butter cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup graulated white sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup dark unsweetened cocoa powder use a premium brand for richer flavor; do not use dutch processed
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 1½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup Nutella it's best if you use a fresh new jar of Nutella as the spread will be very moist and easy to scoop

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. In a mixing bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars on high speed until light and fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Use your spatula to scrape the sides of your mixing bowl between each egg addition, to make sure all the batter is incorporated.
  2. Add in cocoa, cake flour, all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt and set mixer on lowest speed setting to stir until dough is just combined. You want the dough to be smooth and uniform in color, but you don't want to overmix it, so this should only take a few revolutions and less than 30 seconds. Stir in 1 cup of chocolate chips (reserve the remaining 1/3 cup).
  3. Place the dough in the fridge for about 30-60 minutes to chill. You want the dough to be cold (but not to the point that it's hard) so it's less sticky to work with and won't spread too much in the oven.
  4. Preheat oven to 410°F.
  5. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats. Using your hand, loosely scoop out 4.5 oz of dough (weigh this out or you can try to divide dough evenly into 8 sections but it's best to weigh it out so that the cookies all cook evenly) and then flatten dough into a disc. The dough will be sticky but should be workable. Using an 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop, add 1.5 tbsp of Nutella to the center of your disc. Then carefully wrap your disc around the Nutella, forming a ball. Make sure that the Nutella is completely covered and there are no cracks in your dough. Repeat with remaining dough and Nutella. You will place four cookie balls on each baking sheet, spaced about 2 inches apart. Lightly press about 5-6 chocolate chips to the surface of each ball.
  6. Place one baking sheet into the middle of the oven and place the remaining one in the fridge. Bake the cookies for about 11 minutes, or until the surface is dry and cookies look almost set, but may still be slightly darker in the middle. Remove from oven and remove other baking sheet from fridge and bake remaining cookies for about 11 minutes. After you remove the cookies from the oven, they need to cool directly on the cookie sheet and set. Do not remove cookies before they are set otherwise they will break. Allow cookies to cool at least 20 minutes. Once cookies have cooled and set, remove and enjoy.

Cheddar Cheese Buns Recipes
Cheddar Cheese Buns Recipes

I came to the thought of creating cheddar buns once I saw them during a bakery during one among our camping trips. We always love checking the grocery stores nearby, and you recognize me, I always search for new ideas to bake.

These cheesy buns immediately caught my attention as they glistened with tender-crisp cheese on top. I knew I had to form them.

Cheddar Cheese Buns Recipes

INGREDIENTS:
For the Tangzhong or Overnight Dough:

  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour

For the Dough:

  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup warm water 105-115 F
  • 2 and 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1 egg beaten, for egg wash

For the Cheese Filling:

  • 1 and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded

For the Toppings:

  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • sesame seeds for sprinkling on top

INSTRUCTIONS:
Make the Overnight Dough:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour and boiling water. Stir until the mixture gathers into a shaggy mass. Shape the dough into a ball. Wrap this in plastic and refrigerate overnight.

Make the Bread Dough:

  1. In a mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast over warm water and let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until the yeast is soft and dissolved. Add in the sugar, egg, salt,  and melted butter. Stir everything with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add the overnight dough. Add the flour gradually and stir the mixture until it gathers into a soft and shaggy dough. Turn the dough over on a floured board and knead until it is elastic and smooth (You may need to sprinkle just a bit of flour to help with the stickiness of the dough).
  3. Shape the dough into a ball. Place it in a bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel and let rise for 1 and 1/2 hour or until doubled in size.
  4. Deflate the risen dough. Divide it into 14 or so portions. Flatten a portion using your palms until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Place about a tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese in the center of the dough. Pull the sides over to the center to cover the filling, then shape the dough into a smooth ball. Tuck the ends under to seal. Repeat with the rest of the dough portions. Place the dough balls on a greased muffin pan. You will need another muffin pan ( or two muffin molds) because this batch makes 14.
  5. Cover loosely and let the dough rise for an hour, or until they are doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350 F. Brush the dough balls with beaten egg. Sprinkle a pinch or two of garlic powder in each of the balls. Top with shredded cheeses. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on each bun. Bake at 350 F for 18-22 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and tops are golden.

Homemade Beef Massaman Curry
Homemade Beef Massaman Curry

For me, i believe it's to be Thai food. Chocolate is maybe a significant contestant however that solely satisfies my appetite. Thai on the opposite hand? Hmmmm the sweet/spicy/zesty/creamy combos area unit endless. i like a fast inexperienced thai chicken curry for a midweekly meal, however a slow sauteed curry with pretty juicy chunks of meat that disintegrate and also the tastiest saucy potatoes? currently that’s one thing else entirely!!

What is Massaman Curry?
Massaman curry may be a Thai curry that’s made however comparatively gentle heat-wise. It contains millions of spices -which will vary from curry to curry, plus meat, potatoes and milk or milk. I fully love Massaman – each the meat version, and that i conjointly create one with a full chicken. I’ll have to be compelled to share it on here after I get the prospect to photograph it.

Homemade Beef Massaman Curry

INGREDIENTS:
Massaman Paste - makes about 6 tbsp:

  • 1 chopped red onion
  • 3 mild red chillies roughly chopped (or use fewer chillies, depending on how hot you like it) - I use Fresno chillies
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 sticks of lemongrass outer leaves removed, softer inside chopped finely (or replace with 2 tsp lemongrass paste)
  • 1 tsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp shrimp paste optional, also it's generally gluten free, but best to check
  • 3 tsp fish sauce ,make sure it's a gluten free brand if needed
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • small bunch fresh coriander/cilantro stalks you'll be using the leaves later to serve, so just wrap them in a bit of damp tissue to keep them fresh
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Other curry ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1.5 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)
  • 2 1/4 lb (1kg) braising beef (beef chuck) chopped into chunks
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 2/3 cup (400ml) beef stock - 2 stock cubes with water is fine use kallo beef bouillon cubes for gluten free
  • 14 oz (400g) can coconut milk it's usually gluten free, but double check
  • 1 lb (500g) baby new potatoes (slice any bigger ones in half)
  • Juice of 1 lime

To Serve:

  • Boiled rice
  • Chopped fresh coriander/cilantro
  • Chopped red chillies
  • Lime wedges

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Place all the paste ingredients in a food processor or mini chopper and blend until it forms a paste. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan. Toss the chopped beef in the cornflour, salt and pepper. Fry the meat in the oil for about 5 mins on medium to high heat. You can do this in batches, but I find that if you put the meat in, and leave it alone for a few minutes before you stir it, you'll get a nice dark colour on the beef. The beef will probably stick a bit to the pan, so you might need to give it a little scrape with a spatula.
  3. Once the beef has cooked for 5 mins, turn down the heat a little and add in the spice paste you made earlier. Give it a stir to coat the beef and let it cook for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add in the beef stock and coconut milk. Give everything a stir (make sure you give any bits stuck at the bottom of the pan a scrape), place the lid on and gently simmer on a low heat for 1 hour 45 mins (alternatively you can place in the oven at about 160C/320F). Give it a stir every so often. If it's starting to look dry you can add in some more beef stock or water.
  5. After the 1 hour 45 mins, add in the potatoes, give it a stir and cook for a further 25 - 30 mins until the potatoes are tender (this is a good time to start cooking your rice too).
  6. Take out of the oven and mix in the lime juice. Serve the curry on a bed of rice with a sprinkling of coriander/cilantro, fresh chillies and a wedge of lime.
