Nutella Cupcakes

Would you like to bake a rich, light and succulent cupcakes? Then you must go for this cupcake. For those who are not aware of nutella, it is a spread combined with hazelnut and chocolate. A tsp of nutella is pure heaven. 

I indulge in it when i get cravings for chocolate. I have baked it many times and shared it with friends but only now i got this chance of sharing the recipe. Verdict has always been "sinfully delectable". No frosting is required and how cool is that.


Room temperature butter-1/2 stick
All purpose flour-2 cups
Powdered sugar-3/4 cup
Eggs-3 nos
Room temperature nutella-4 tbs
Vanilla essence-1 tsp
Salt-1/4 tsp
Baking powder-1/2 tsp


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line the muffin tin with paper liners. Cream together the butter and sugar for a couple of minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, stir in the vanilla essence followed by flour, baking powder and salt  is thoroughly mixed. Now scoop the batter into liners until it is three fourths full. With the help of a knife or a spoon take a tsp of nutella and swirl it around. Bake for about 20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool the cupcakes on a wire rack and then serve it after some time.
