Nutella Cupcakes

That’s right, another cupcake recipe! I really did bake a lot of cupcakes that weekend, this recipe was inspired by looking around my kitchen thinking ‘what else could be a good frosting flavour?’ and I am so glad that I had the inspiration for these! So here is my recipe for Nutella Cupcakes;


  • 100g of Plain Flour
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2tsp of Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 200g of Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 125g of Icing Sugar
  • 2 tbsp of Nutella
  • 12 Whole Walnuts

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Prepare your bun tin with your paper cake cases for later
  3. Sift the sugar into a bowl and add 100g of the butter then cream together until smooth
  4. In a separate bowl sift the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt together
  5. Then slowly add the dry mixture to the creamed butter mix until crumbly
  6. Add the 2 eggs and whisk until smooth
  7. Finally add the vanilla extract and mix in thoroughly
  8. Pour the mixture evenly into the cake cases
  9. Bake in the oven for 18-20 minutes
  10. Once cooked allow to cool thoroughly
  11. Once cool sift the icing sugar into a bowl
  12. Then add the final 100g of butter and cream until smooth
  13. Spoon in the nutella and combine thoroughly
  14. Use a pallet knife to decorate the top of the cupcakes with the frosting
  15. Finally add a walnut to each to decorate
  16. Then enjoy!

These Nutella Cupcakes really were so yummy, if not a little bit sickly (a lot sickly) but for all the right reasons, you only need to ask my friend who made the most inappropriate noises whilst eating.  For me, anything with a walnut on top tastes great too!

Sometimes the best ideas come from a little bit of improvisation, what are your best improvised recipes?
