Nutella Cupcakes

i think the world of Nutella. i eat it for breakfast (with toast). i eat it for lunch (with peanut butter). i eat it for dinner (with...pasta?)

in fact, i find reasons to eat it all the time. i justify & make excuses & feel no guilt or shame. because it's that awesome.

you know what else i do all of the above with? cupcakes.

so...cupcakes + Nutella. omg. ::head explodes::

Nutella Frosted Cupcakes (adapted from Baking Bites)

10 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup white sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups sifted all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Nutella, 12 teaspoons. (1 teaspoon for each cupcakes- give or take give)

Preheat oven to 325° Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy,about 2 minutes. Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. (Worry not if the batter isn't smooth) Add vanilla.

Sift together flour, salt and baking powder & add to wet mixture. Stir until batter is uniform and no flour remains.

Using an ice cream scoop or spoon , fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be 3/4 full. Top each cake with 1 heaping teaspoon of Nutella (i also used my cookie scoop for this part- made it much easier). Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of batter up over the Nutella.

Bake for 20 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.

Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Makes 12 delectable cupcakes. (p.s. i doubled the recipe because more = better)

Try not to eat them all at once. You'll make yourself sick. Not sick of Nutella, because that's not even possible, just legit sick because of so much win.
Pin It!

Thanks for sharing this recipe, I'm a Nutella fan as well; I made these for a Memorial Day picnic...YUMMY! I substituted the all purpose flour with Softasilk cake flour and added a dab of my mom's homemade strawberry jelly as a garnish type thing...Mmmm!

THANK YOU again for sharing!
