>Mini Nutella Brownies with Berry Filling


I am so sorry for not posting for so long! I was computerless in Europe and it is super hard trying to blog from an iPhone! I just arrived back home not long ago and thought I’d share the last of my European Instagram photo posts with you before getting back into the normal swing of things.


When I made these little babies, I was in Poland, hanging out with family in the warm, sunny garden, catching up with old friends, going to lots of parties and all around enjoying a great holiday in Europe.

In Poland, I spent a week or so at my uncle’s house. His family now live in the home that my mum grew up in, in a small village in south east Poland.


The house is old but beautiful, the yard is big with a wonderful hammock, and in the garden, he and my aunt grow raspberries and strawberries, lettuce and cucumbers, tomatoes and spring onion.

I spent a lot of my time in the village with my cousin sun baking, on the hammock, while eating raspberries picked fresh from the bush. Amazing.


I spent a bit of time baking while I stayed in the village too. I made traditional polish strawberry dumplings (pierogi), my ultimate brownies, tried my hand at making my basic shortcrust pastry with European ingredients and then baked it up into little berry hand pies with freshly picked berries.


One of the things I really wanted to make for my family and friends were my favourite easy Nutella brownies.

They don’t really eat many chocolate desserts in Poland though. Instead, there’s much more sponge, jelly, fruit and custard involved in their baking. So I filled the little Nutella brownie bites with fresh berries to cut through all the richness and sweetness. And they were delicious, such cute little things, too.


MINI NUTELLA BROWNIES WITH BERRY FILLING

Brownie recipe adapted from Abby Dodge.

1 cup Nutella (280g, 10 oz)
2 eggs
10 tbsp plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup berries (I used blueberries and raspberries)
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp flour

Preheat the oven to 180 C and grease a non stick 24 hole mini muffin pan with butter.

Combine the berries, sugar and 2 tsp flour in a small bowl. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the Nutella, eggs, flour and salt until combined.

Put about half a teaspoon of batter into each of the 24 mini muffin holes.

Top with a small teaspoon of berry mixture, then divide the remaining Nutella batter among the 24 holes, topping the fruit.

Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Makes 24 mini Nutella brownie bites.

  1. These look delicious! I love how it looks like there are berries bursting out of them =)

  2. My Son loves Nutella and fresh strawberries or banana on toast! Everybody seems to think that it is a weird combination but we think it tastes great.

    • Oh no way Judy its an amazing combination! Nutella and strawberry/banana crepes are the best! And are made even better with a bit of custard :-)

    Didn’t have fresh berries on hand, so used black raspberry preserves instead. Rave reviews from my brunch buffet guests!
