Nutella Chocolate Cupcakes

If you are a Nutella fan than these cupcakes are definitely worth the effort. Make sure that Nutella jar is at room temperature.

Ingredients list:

  • All purpose flour: 2 cups
  • Castor sugar: 2 cups
  • Nutella: 1 cup
  • Cocoa: 4 tbsp
  • Butter Milk: 1/2 cup
  • Olive oil: 1/2 cup
  • Eggs: 3 large ones
  • Baking powder: 2 tbsp
  • Baking soda: 1/4 tbsp
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Vanilla essence: a few drops

Mix oil and Nutella so that it becomes silky smooth and easy to pour into the batter. Beat eggs with a fork and add in castor sugar and beat a few minutes more. You can use a hand whisk for this. Sift in the dry ingredients. Now add in all the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Use a rubber spatula here. Then pour them in the cupcake tray lined with liners. Fill half of the cupcake liners. Bake at 180 degrees in a preheated oven for 20 minutes or till the skewer comes clean. Let them cool down completely before icing.

For icing you will need :

  • Nutella: 1/2 cup
  • Unsalted butter: 1/2 cup
  • Salt: a pinch
  • Icing sugar: 4 tbsp

Whip up the butter till it becomes frothy then add sugar and Nutella and the salt. Whip it for another few minutes till it becomes more smooth.

Use a Wilton 2 D tip for piping. Cut strawberries into thin slices and then add them on the top. Trick is to put the iced cupcakes in the fridge for the buttercream to set.
