Milk and White Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl Frosting

I had a friend coming over for dinner, probably one of my biggest baking fans, so I couldn’t not make cupcakes for the evening, in fact it is practically implied with the dinner invitation. I always like to test out a new recipe when I can so from the content of ‘what I had left in the cupboard’ I bring you Milk and White Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl Frosting:

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (fan) and put your cupcake cases into the tin for later
  2. Start by creaming the sugar and 100g of the butter together in a bowl
  3. Once smooth sieve in the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and flour and mix until crumbly
  4. Then add the eggs and whisk until your batter is smooth
  5. Finally add the chocolate chunks and fold so they are distributed through the batter
  6. Evenly pour the cake mix into your cupcake cases
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 11-13 minutes (you will know when they are ready by lightly pushing the top and it springing back)
  8. Allow to cool
  9. Once cool you can start on the icing, cream the icing sugar and remaining butter into a bowl until smooth
  10. Then add the nutella but do not stir
  11. Use the frosting to decorate the tops of your cupcakes and the nutella will swirl in (as in the picture)
  12. Then enjoy!

Note: This recipe makes 12 cupcakes

These Milk and White Chocolate Chunk Cupcakes with Nutella Swirl Frosting were basically as yummy as they sound, I mean there isn’t anything not to like right? I especially loved how they looked in my new cupcakes cases, however, I found a downside…. you cannot get into them to eat the cake easily, annoying but a challenge we had no problem beating!

My chocolate chunks had also sunk a little so they were mostly towards the bottom, does anyone have tips for preventing this?
