I tried this Nutella Cup Cakes with the recipe I got from a great foodie blogger She Bakes & She Cook ☻ The cakes turn out great & taste heavenly. My daughters loved it !
One of my kids favourite cupcakes and here is the recipe :
Nutella Frosted Cupcakes
☻10 tbsp(140 gm) butter, softened
☻3/4 cup white sugar (120 gm) - I reduced 10gm
☻3 eggs1/2 tsp vanilla
☻1 3/4 cups (200 gm) plain flour
☻1/4 tsp salt
☻2 tsp baking powder
☻Nutella, approx. 1/3 cup
Preheat oven to 325F(190c). Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners (I baked at 170c for 20mins)
Cream together butter and sugar until light, about 2 minutes.
Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated - Don’t worry if the batter doesn’t look smooth. Add vanilla, mix well.
Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains **(I sift the flour, baking powder and salt together before fold them in the butter mixture slowly spoon by spoon, mix well - the batter will be a bit sticky and thick**)
Using an ice cream scoop, fill each muffin liner with batter.
They should be 3/4 full, if you’re not using a scoop.
Top each cake with 1 1/2 tsp Nutella (I topped them with 1/2tsp)
Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the nutella.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
☻Makes 12 cupcakes
Notes : I bake it at 170c as my oven are tend to get hot easily. I reduce the amount of sugar used, it's a bit sweet for my taste buds.
It's not easy to swirl the Nutella in the batter for the first time. Practice makes perfect. Must try this okay! It smells & tastes heavenly yummy ! ~
