nutella cupcakes INGREDIENTS

Cupcakes Base:

  • 3/4 cup plus 2 spoons of flour
  • 2 1/2 spoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • a scant 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 3 spoons of butter (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk (room temperature)
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 1/2 cup of nutella
  • a pinch of salt


  • 2 cups of icing sugar
  • 2 spoons of whole milk
  • 1/3 cup of nutella

METHOD Mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, sugar, salt, and butter until you get a sandy consistency and everything is well combined. Slowly pour milk into the flour mixture, beating well until all the ingredients are well mixed. Add the egg and beat well.

Fill two-thirds of the cupcake cases and bake in the preheated oven 190°C for about 20 minutes. Let the cupcakes cool down.

When the cupcakes are cold, hollow out a small section in the center of each one and fill with nutella.

Mix all the ingredients for the icing, spoon the frosting on top and decorate accordingly.

I am not a professional chef, but just an ordinary guy who loves international food, trying new flavours and cooking when I am in the right mood. I don’t usually follow recipes, unless they are too complicated and need to be read. I love using whatever ingredients are available at home and make my meals from scratch.
