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
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.
