Nutella Cupcakes



Yesterday I posted about Homemade Nutella.  It was delicious!  I doubled the recipe, because I knew I wanted to make something really good with it.  I wasn't sure what it would be, but after some careful thought, I decided cupcakes!  I actually had some cake batter in the freezer from back when I made Molten Lava Cake.  Perfect opportunity to use that up!  So I thawed that out, baked some cupcakes, filled them with Nutella, and then topped them with a Nutella Buttercream Frosting. 

Oh My Word!!  I don't really have words to describe this, it was just AMAZING!!  The frosting was so good!  My 6 year old and I just sat over the bowl of cake balls I scooped out, and dipped them in frosting!  I immediately called my neighbor and made her come over.  She had to sneak in so the kids didn't see that she got one and they didn't :)  My 6 year old is already asking when I can make them again! 

Nutella Cupcakes
Printable Recipe

Cake:
Adapted from Paula Deen

8 (1 ounce) squares semi-sweet chocolate
10 Tbls butter
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract


Frosting:
I used my normal frosting recipe, and just added Nutella

1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbls milk
1/4 cup Nutella
1 - 1 1/2 cups powdered Sugar
To make the cake: 
Melt the chocolate and butter together.  You can use a double broiler, or the microwave.  Just get it nice and smooth.  Add the flour and sugar.  It will be very thick. Stir in the eggs, yolks, and vanilla until smooth.  Pour batter into muffin tins.  Will make approx 12 cupcakes. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Cool completely. 

To make the frosting:
Mix everything together until it is the consistency of frosting.  You may need to adjust the sugar or milk to get it right. 

Once the cupcakes are cool, use a teaspoon to scoop out the center.  Fill with Nutella.  Top with Nutella Buttercream Frosting.

I have to agree with you on the amazing looking frosting with the cakes you have baked. Nutella inside is such a change to the normal ones always we choose.

That does look fantastic. I'm cracking up at your neighbor's mom sneaking out for a treat that isn't shared with her kids. Classic. :)

Yum, love this Nutella kick you are on, these sound great! I made a similar Nutella buttercream a few weeks ago, it was so delicious!

Erin, these cupcakes look amazing. Love the Nutella frosting. Kudos to you for making your own.
I'm smiling imagining your neighbor sneaking out of the house to have a bite of these delicious cupcakes

I can just imagine how great these were. I mean, really, how can you go wrong, when it comes to nutella and cake?

Can't go wrong with chocolate cake and nutella. If a kid doesn't like it, I suggest a DNA test. ;) Sweet playful recipe!

Congratulations on making Food Buzz's Top 9 with these amazing cupcakes!

This definitely deserves a Top 9 nod! I have been a proponent for a while now for Nutella to get its own category as a necessary food group!

These look amazing! Congrats on making it to the Top 9. I hope you don't mind but I went ahead and added your recipe (and gave credit of course) to my weekly Foodie Friday post where I feature bloggers and other recipes I have found throughout the week. The post should be up later today, definitely stop by and check it out. :)

I made these. It was sooooooooooooooooo chocolate-y. It was even too much chocolate for me! :-) But my friends loved them!!!! They took home the extras.

As for me, the choc-a-holic, I may never eat chocolate again. Well at least for a day.
