I don’t have to write poetry and poems to brag about how Nutella has changed my life. It’s here, now a recipe in my blog and that shows itself. Jeez what I am writing, as if I am talking about my new crush- new crush or old crush- or whatever crush, I am now on a Nutella crush. So my life is Nutella this ….Nutella that …Nutella how… Nutella why …..Nutella oh! where …..There you go. Nutella fever has risen….you all would say, can you stop being a drama queen. Yes, yes I can try, so now to the recipe.
Nutella Chocolate cupcakes
1 and 3/4 cup of flour
½ tsp of baking soda
1 tsp of baking powder
2 tsp of vanilla essence
½ cup of fine granulated sugar
½ cup of plain yogurt
¼ cup of melted butter
½ cup of Nutella
½ cup of chocolate powder
2-3 tbs of chocolate syrup- Hershey or any other brand
In a big mixing bowl. Sift flour, add in baking soda and baking powder. Mix well.
Now in a separate bowl, mix together butter and sugar well. Add in eggs, one at a time and whisk in gently. Now add in vanilla essence. Add in Nutella (Keep Nutella at room temperature for about 10-15 mints. This will help in mixing with butter and eggs. We will just need to mix in, and if it doesn’t mix, don’t fret, with Nutella everything is delicious.
Add in plain yogurt and gently fold in.Add in Hershey chocolate syrup.
Now add the flour mixture from time to time to make the cake batter. Use up all flour mixture to mix in with the above mixture.
Preheat oven at 175 deg C.
Prepare the cup-cake/muffin tin. Brush butter evenly and then sprinkle flour to coat it well. Tap the cake tin so that the flour gets distributed evenly. Or use cupcake liners/moulds.
Pour the cake batter in to the prepared muffin tin with a spoon. Bake the cup-cakes in the middle rack for about 20-22 mints or till the centre of the cake is cooked through well. Check by inserting a toothpick, if it comes out clean or even if some crumbs are there, cup-cake is baked well.
Take out the cup-cakes and let it cool. I haven’t made the Nutella cream frosting but if you wish you can do so. Enjoy Nutella cupcakes.
