Vanilla and cocoa bears with Nutella

If you want more recipes for children, you don’t have to persuade me anymore ;). I went out and bought bear-shaped moulds to use for this recipe. I used a simple cupcake recipe. The teddy bears grow evenly in the moulds; they have a delicate texture and are soft and easy to add filling to. These teddy bears can be frozen and then de-frosted for when your children ask for them :). As the filling, I used Nutella because I always have it on hand, but you can also use homemade custard cream. I promise you – your children will be so happy with them!

Ingredients for about 20 teddy bears:

  • 130 g butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1.5 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 – 3 Tbsp milk


  • a bit of cocoa powder (about 1 tsp)
  • Nutella, for the filling

All ingredients should be at room temperature. Sift the flour and baking powder and put aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one after the other, beating continuously after each addition. Add vanilla extract and mix. Add the dry ingredients (apart from the cocoa powder) and milk to the butter mixture and mix with a spatula.

Take two tablespoons out of the mixture and place in a separate bowl; add 1 – 1.5 teaspoons of cocoa powder to it. Mix

Grease the bear-shaped moulds with butter and sprinkle with flour. Shake off the excess flour. Place the cocoa mixture into a piping bag and squeeze out the paws and ears in the appropriate places in the moulds using a small round decorating tip. Place the vanilla mixture in a piping bag and squeeze into the moulds up to half their height. You can also use a spoon, but a piping bag is much simpler.

Bake at 190ºC for about 15 minutes (or less), until golden and a stick inserted into the bears comes out dry. Remove and cool on a cooling rack.

Turn the cooled bears onto their bellies and stuff them with Nutella.
