Nutella Cupcake

We were invited to a party today and I wanted to bake a cake for them.  Thought it might be easier to serve as cupcake rather than cake as there are many kids there.

As I am also heading out to hubby's office for their "opening day" before going on to a party.  I needed a no frost cupcake.  

Then I remembered this Nutella Cupcake that I baked back in 2006.  It was so popular back then and I remembered it was delicious.  

With the recent Nutella sales of buy 1 free 1, hubby bought home two bottles.  I needed to clear that off fast as my kiddos eat Nutella like drinking water.

I wonder who doesn't love Nutella but excessive is not good.

This recipe is so easy to put together that my girl is actually the one baking them.

Verdict: soft and moist and with the yummy Nutella.

What you need 

140g butter, softened
100g white sugar
3 eggs
½ tsp vanilla essence
200 grams sifted plain flour
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
Nutella, approx. 1/3 cup


Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 12 muffin tins with paper liners.

Cream together butter and sugar until light, 2 minutes.

Add in eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated.

Add vanilla.

Stir in flour, salt and baking powder until batter is uniform and no flour remains.

Fill each muffin liner with batter. They should be ¾ full.

Top each cake with 1½ tsp Nutella. 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.
