Nutella Stuffed Cupcakes

Nutella is a pantry staple in our house. I always hope that the kids will want it on toast for breakfast so I can grab a spoon and start eating it. Once I get the taste I can’t stop. But don’t worry I do stop after I have licked the fifth spoonful!

This recipe of Nutella Stuffed Cupcakes is a favourite and of course I love it because it has Nutella in it.

Recipe type: Cupcakes
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 12 teaspoons Nutella
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/ 160°C fan forced. Line a 12-cup standard muffin tin with paper liners, set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup or another bowl, whisk together milk, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. Pour mixture over dry ingredients and stir using a rubber spatula just until moist.
  4. There are two ways for preparing these: Option 1: Scoop a spoonful of batter evenly into the muffin tray. Drop 1 teaspoon Nutella into the center of each cup. Top with remaining batter to completely cover the filling. Or Option 2: Scoop the batter into each of the muffin liners. Drop 1 teaspoon of Nutella into the centre of each cup. Then using a tooth pick or cake skewer swirl the cupcake batter over the Nutella. You just need to cover it up a little bit. This will give you a Nutella swirl effect on top.
  5. Place into oven and bake for 13-15 minutes, or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Let cool on a wire rack.
  7. Enjoy!

These cupcakes are easy to make and taste nice warm. The texture is lovely and moist. I don’t know how long they will stay fresh for as these are all gone within two days.

Do you have a favourite recipe that uses something for a yummy centre?

I have enjoyed sharing this recipe with you so much so that I am going to head into the kitchen and make these again!

Happy baking,
