This week I was planning to make some sort of banana cake, since I’ve been craving that for the longest time. For some reason, I changed my mind mid-weekend and decided to try Self-frosting Nutella Cupcakes instead. I love cupcakes, and I love Nutella. This is a win-win situation!
Here’s how it looked, fresh out of the oven.
Here’s a close up of one cupcake.
What I think: It’s a winner! It turned out just the way I wanted it, and I loved the way the “frosting” turned out. Every bite will get you a mouth-melting chocolate goodness. The cupcake itself could use a little lightening. Next time, I’ll try to beat the batter a bit longer so I’ll have more air in it. Perhaps make it a bit smaller overall, so I’ll come out with 12 cupcakes, instead of just 10 (although that’ll mean I need to use more Nutella).
Tee wanted to have her own shot with the cupcakes, when she saw I was taking pictures of it.
