Praline paste adds a ton of flavor to these delicate cupcakes. The praline and hazelnut flour are the perfect combination. The sweet cakes are topped with a frosting that is a mixture of tart mascarpone and additional praline paste. If you don't have hazelnuts on hand when you want to make these cakes, you can easily substitute ground almonds or walnuts. You could even do a combination of different nuts for an extra complex flavor.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams butter
  • 150 grams brown sugar
  • 150 grams flour
  • 40 grams ground hazelnuts
  • 3 eggs
  • 120 grams praline paste
  • 150 grams mascarpone cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whip the sugar and eggs until the mixture whitens.
  3. Add the melted butter and hazelnut powder.
  4. Finally, add the flour little by little.
  5. Pour batter into paper liners, half filling them.
  6. Add a small teaspoon of praline paste and cover (the molds should be 3/4 full).
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  8. When done, cool the cupcakes completely.
  9. Mix well with the remaining praline paste and mascarpone.
  10. Fill a pastry bag with this mixture and decorate the cupcakes as you wish.

I loved mixing praline and cupcakes to make a sweet treat. I did not have hazelnuts so I used almond powder instead and really liked the results.
