Nutella Day...

Today for ‘World Nutella Day’ I made 
‘Nutella Frosted Cupcakes’ using Allison’s recipe from 'Nestful of Love'.

Nutella Frosted Cupcakes
Makes 12

140 grams butter, softened
3/4 cup of sugar (I used brown sugar in mine)
3 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
200 grams sifted all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
@1/3 cup Nutella

Preheat oven to 352f.  Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

Cream together softened butter and sugar until light, for 2 minutes.
Add in eggs, one at a time until fully incorporated. Dont worry if the batter doesnt look smooth.  Add Vanilla.  Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.

Using an ice-cream scoop, fill each muffin liner with batter.  They should be 3/4 full, if your not using a scoop.  Top each cake with 1 1/2 tsp Nutella.  Swirl Nutella in with a toothpick, making sure to fold a bit of the batter up over the Nutella.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Place on a rack to cool and then ENJOY...

  1. They look delicious! Today I fought off the urge to buy Nutella. If I buy it I usually have no self control...

  2. I dont have it in the house often, as I tend to eat it very quickly :)
