Week 2 of 52: Nutella Cupcakes

13 Jan

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.

      If you click on the recipe link, the author says you can use peanut butter. Just get the one that’s runny at room temperature. XD

        I used strawberry jam. And guess what else? I also tried using Choko Choko — those gooey chocolate stuff in small plastic tubes XD I forgot that my mom sells those at PhP 1 per tube. 1 tube = 2 cupcakes kasi topping lang naman šŸ˜€

    Clair: I read your post about the swirly cupcakes. They look amazing and fun! I didn’t think of using any other topping (probably because I’m crazy about Nutella, haha!). The Choko Choko idea is fantastic! They’re easy to put into the cupcakes too!
